government funding. The funds raised help to enable them to provide a day-centre with
specially adapted facilities for families who have children with special needs.
They currently have 500 families registered who find it difficult to participate in many
mainstream activities. Lots of the childhood experiences that most families simply take
for granted are not an option for them, and they describe Camp Mohawk as "their
lifeline".
