The AFA organises social activities and other key events for members. Be sure to visit the website often for upcoming events throughout the year.

The Events Calendar is on the right hand side.

 

Those who have attended Camp Chaos at Greenhills Centre on the Cotter Road just outside Canberra last year had an absolute blast.  This year's camp will be held at the same venue on Sat 14 Oct (10 am) to Sun 15 Oct 2017(3pm). 

Greenhills is a beautiful venue and has a great range of activities on offer, so we're excited to return! See http://www.greenhillscentre.com/ for more details on the venue. 

We'll be starting camp on the Saturday morning (14 October) and finishing up on Sunday afternoon (15 October), with heaps of fun activities, including old favourites with lots of new activities too!

On Saturday afternoon, a guest speaker is available for all AFA adult members to attend.  If attending the guest speaker event, but not the camp, a small cost of $5.00 to cover the cost of afternoon tea is requested.

As per previous years, the invite is open to teens/tweens aged 10 or over and we're again asking that teens/tweens be accompanied by a parent, carer or other responsible adult. As with all the previous Camp Chaos camps, if you are happy for your child to attend Camp without his or her parent, we ask that a Guardian be nominated and a supporting Guardian form completed and signed.  

The Camp Committee has also organised for younger children to attend an activity with the Greenhills staff (separate from the teen/tweens), which will take place at the same time as the parents Guest speaker event.  A cost of $10 will help cover the activity and snack for the kids.

Cost: For AFA members the cost of the camp is $120 for each tween/teen and $80 for each parent.
