A weekend of summer fun at Lord Somers Camp

A wonderful weekend away was enjoyed by 21 families, 53 children and 41 adults at the biannual Lord Somers Camp located in Somers on the Mornington Peninsula.

Surrounded by beautiful bushland and overlooking the picturesque beach, families had a rare chance to unwind and have fun together away from everyday challenges.

A group of 100 volunteers cared for the children as they enjoyed arts and crafts activities, games, stargazing and glow in the dark bowling. Time spent at the beach trying paddle boarding, sailing and kayaking was a favourite for the children who splashed around in the water, soaked up some sun and enjoyed trying new activities.

Parents were treated to a well-earned break and pampering at the parents’ retreat, with relaxing massages, beautician services and wine and cheese tasting on offer.

Motorbike rides, a visit from the fire brigade, storytelling and movie night gave families a chance to spend time together and create precious memories, not only with each other, but with other families experiencing similar circumstances.

The weekend was made possible by Lord Somers Camp and Powerhouse who not only coordinated the whole weekend, but also provided 100 volunteers to assist in making a memorable and fun getaway for the families.

Special thanks also to Bay Quilters, Western Port Yacht Club and Harley Owners Group Dandenong for their generous support.
