Youth Group

The Parafed Wellington Youth Group is for 5 – 18 year olds. 

It has been designed so young people can experience a range of opportunities in different sports, recreation and leisure activities.

Through our youth group we aim to provide pathways to sport, opportunities to compete at regional and national levels, social networks for our young members and their families, and improve disability awareness within sport.

El Rancho Camp

A few photos of our Youth Group member at our christmas camp at El Rancho.  It was a fabulous weekend and we all had a ball.  We tried archery, low ropes, spent hours on the waterslide, played mini-golf, paddle boated our way around the pond and island, feed the horses, and were followed by clover the pregnant cat which had its kittens while we were at camp.  Who could ask for more!
