​This year at BREATHE Women’s Conference in August, one of the community projects that will be launched is Camp Hope. 

Camp Hope is a retreat – in the truest sense of the word – for disenfranchised women from the community.  Adventist  Women of Greater Sydney Conference will bless these women through sponsoring them and their children to a 2-night/3-day retreat at Crosslands Convention Centre.  Camp Hope is scheduled for April 2016.

The program will include lifestyle seminars on Finance Management, Parenting, Nutrition and Relationships. There will also be a pamper session, special treats and a kid’s program.

The retreat will be staffed by professionals, volunteering their services to invest in women who would otherwise not be able to access their services.  Attendees will come recommended by Community Agencies, such as ADRA Blacktown Counselling Centre, Wesley Mission and FACS. 

We are so excited about Camp Hope.  This is an amazing opportunity to do something tangible in the life of someone who would probably never have the opportunity to step away from their circumstances and be loved upon.

If you would like to be a part of the project, please contact Adventist Women’s Director Beryl Landers at [email protected].
