“It was so good to be able to do something that's connected to my child’s NF that isn't an appointment, or forms, or additional worries and burden. It was so lovely to finally be able to do something FUN that we could only do because he has NF1.”


Vic Camp Attendee, 2022


NF Camps provide members of the NF community the opportunity to build supportive relationships with their peers and others walking a similar journey, who know and understand NF.

Our aim is to help our community of NF families increase feelings of social inclusion, connection and support.


At Roses Gap people find the time to learn, the time to reflect, the time to relax, the time to build relationships, the time to heal, the time to seek adventure, be challenged and to have fun. With things to enjoy such as; abseiling, canoeing, giant swing, flying fox, archery, crate stacking and a stunning waterfall walk.

There is a huge indoor games room which is great for evening activities or to wind down after a busy day. The kids can relax in front of a movie,  play table tennis or entertain themselves with a range of giant games. 

Of course if you feel like coming to camp and just relaxing, we've got you covered for that too!

An activity schedule will be released closer to the camp. All activities are optional and may be subject to change due to weather and staffing considerations.
