DBA UK is pleased to offer it’s members the opportunity to travel to Camp Sunshine in the USA to take part in the bi-annual USA DBA Program, for 2 families, taking part from the 21st to the 26th July 2013. We will also be offering 2 families travel cover for the 2015 Camp Sunshine meeting too.
Camp Sunshine is located in the state of Maine in North America, it is a place for respite, support and fun for families who have life-threatening illnesses affecting them.
DBA UK is offering to pay for the flights for two families to travel to and from Camp Sunshine, while you are there, your costs are covered by Camp Sunshine. All of the other organisation needed must be completed by the families who gets the places (applications, medicals, passports etc.). Any DBA UK patient can enter, regardless of age.
We would also ask that whoever gets to go, comes to the following DBA UK Family Weekend to discuss their experience, as well as write about their time at Camp Sunshine for the DBA UK website.
Due to the short time frame involved in getting a family to this years Camp Sunshine, we will need to take applications quickly and select two families at random in the next committee meeting, currently scheduled for 26th March. A draw for who goes in 2015 will be held at the 2013 Family Weekend.
Please note that winning the raffle will not guarantee you can go to Camp Sunshine, winning the raffle means DBA UK will cover your flights, if your subsequent application to Camp Sunshine is successful. You will be responsible for your own insurance and no responsibility can be taken by DBA UK for any circumstances that may arise as a result of your trip.
