We kicked off our first Little Stars Kids Camp for the year on Sunday 19 March 2017 and it was an amazing success.
With Easter close, our theme for the camp was the Easter theme with bunnies, an easter egg hunt and making easter bags all on offer. We saw some lovely friendships developing with the children and the bonding which has now taken place between the campers and their adult one on one buddy is just beautiful.
There were many exciting activities on offer at the camp including a performance from indigenous musician "Circular Rhythm", a visit from Elsa and Batman, pony rides, our petting zoo as well as a giant connect 4, dancing, stories, and of course just kicking a football around on the grass.
It was a fun and exhausting day with the campers already asking when the next camp is!

Keema Children's Foundation held its second ever Little Stars Kids' Camp. The camp was a great success with the children very excited to see their camp buddies.
We also celebrated Christmas early with Christmas stockings and making Christmas decorations. All the children who had a birthday in the weeks surrounding the camp were treated to a special Little Stars Birthday Cake too.
We had our petting zoo, ponies, yoga, and a wonderful Delta Dogs visit. A fantastic day was had by all.

A huge thank you to the Good Guys at Lutwyche who donated this fabulous speaker for use at our Little Stars Kids Camps as part of their ‘Doing Good’ program and commitment to making a difference in the local community.
The Speaker will be put to excellent use at our Stafford Little Stars Kids Camps and will enable us to provide our little campers with music to help heal little hearts.
Featured left is our wonderful Camp Programmer, Leanne Feurer who put together the successful application to the Good Guys and attended at the Good Guys Lutwyche to accept the donation.
Thanks Leanne and the Good Guys Lutwyche!

Keema Children’s Foundation held its first ever camp on our Little Stars Kid’s Camp Program on the weekend. A lot of fun was had by all. We had ponies, Delta Dogs, a petting zoo, Build A Bear, singing, and a whole raft of other fun activities for our Little Stars to enjoy.
Little Stars Kid’s Camp is a free program for children aged 3–6 who are living in foster care. Through this program we aim to bring fun, laughter, and hope into the lives of the children who attend. Our first camp was a huge success with many of our campers wanting to “come back tomorrow!”
All campers took home a gorgeous case, toiletries bag, and library bag from Yay Me!, a hand–made quilt from Project Linus, and other goodies such as books and toys from Keema Children’s Foundation.
