Our Buddies are passionate, caring, warm, inclusive and energetic!
The role of our Buddies is to support our Campers to thrive on every camp. On our big camps, two Buddies are paired up with a Camper and together they are tasked with the challenge of supporting each other to have the most fun imaginable.
On Shortz, our Buddies and Campers embark on a journey to country Victoria for a couple of nights at a time in their mini social groups.
All of our Buddies undergo extensive preparation and training to develop the tools needed to support our Campers. Our Buddies are also supported to grow and develop personally and professionally throughout their experiences.
"My experience on Camp Sababa reaffirmed the importance of not taking your health or anything for granted. It provided me with a confronting reality of the challenges these young people face and made me value the strength and courage of the parents who support them. From the moment we met our campers, all my nerves about venturing into this new experience were instantly quashed. Reflecting on our time at camp warms my heart, as it truly has changed the way I think and feel. It has opened my eyes to the larger things in life, driving my new-found appetite to make a difference and contribute to the lives of others. I will be forever grateful for this experience."
I was nervous leading up to camp. But after the incredible training from Flying Fox I couldn’t be more happy or proud of what my camper achieved in the short time we were together. "
