A PLACE WHERE LIMB DIFFERENCE IS NOT DIFFERENT

AMP CAMP is Australia’s only camp for Australian youth living with limb loss and or congenital limb differences. 

The AMP CAMP program is an initiative of Amputees NSW with the primary purpose of providing a memorable peer camp experience to youth with limb loss or limb differences. 

A three-day camp with a program delivered by a great team of volunteers including allied health professionals and experienced amputee role models.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

AMP CAMP focuses on youth aged 12 years and over who have a limb difference.

Specifically targeting those with acquired amputation through chronic illness, significant trauma, and congenital limb difference.

WHY AMP CAMP?

Teens often struggle with their identity and ability to fit into their social groups, arguably more so when they’re living with a physical disability or difference. AMP CAMP strives to ensure that no youth amputee goes through the process of limb loss or limb difference alone and has access to the information and support they need to build confidence, expand their peer community, and regain independence in a supportive fun environment.

It’s the one time a year our limb different youth Community can escape from their isolation and foster friendships that can provide emotional support for a lifetime.

The camp is full of fun games, physical challenges, creative activities, awareness, and emotional workshops, prosthetic, and health information presentations. Our program is designed so that youths return home with improved self-esteem, a sense of fulfillment, and a sense of belonging, increasing levels of optimism and resilience.

Improve independence, confidence, and a sense of value

• Gain functional and adaptive life skills
• Increase optimism and resilience about their ability and potential
• Recognise the role they play in creating and maintaining positive relationships with their friends, families, and health care team
• Benefit from relevant information sessions
• Celebrate their difference in an accepting and unapologetic community.
