This year we kept a watchful eye on the weather forecast in the days leading up to our annual trip, but the threatened rain didn’t fall, much to the delight of the Camp Mohawk staff, RFA committee and the families who were coming to enjoy a day in the country.
In all, ninety one people, mums, dads and children arrived, signed up for swimming in the heated pool, ran around in the woods and played in the Sensory Garden and the playground, which even has a swing which will take a wheelchair.
The favourites in the Petting Farm were the baby goats and the ducklings, though learning to groom the pony came a close second, with the chicks, rabbits, sheep and cow providing an opportunity to get close up to all the animals.
Many people went home carefully balancing the pots that they had made with Susan on her Potter’s Wheel, ready to dry at home and paint.
As always the staff are fantastic, so a big thank you to everyone who made it such a happy day!
Our annual trip to Camp Mohawk wouldn't be possible without the amazing support of the people of Reading. Special thanks go to McKay Securities who have very generously supported us for several years, Rotary Club of Loddon Vale whose significant donation also went towards the hire of Camp Mohawk this year, and Woodley and Earley Lions whose generous donation paid for the petting zoo this year.
If you would like to make a donation towards next year's trip to Camp Mohawk or one of our other Summer outings this year - more information to follow soon - then please visit our Localgiving page.
