One of the many benefits of working on a tropical island resort is the special moments you get to witness! Weddings, proposals, honeymoons, celebrations, birthday parties, live musicians and the amazing people you get to meet every day from all parts of the world…
Last week we had a truly special day – Camp Quality came to Dunk Island Resort. Camp Quality is the children’s family cancer charity that believes in bringing optimism and happiness to the lives of children and families affected by cancer through fun therapy. They believe laughter is the best medicine.
We had 150 kids and families in total all here to experience the magic of Dunk Island…
What a day they had! Some learnt how to kayak for the first time, how to use a catamaran, sit on a horse and have a led horse ride along the beach… and even learn to wakeboard!
Their day started with face painting, then horse rides, a tour of our farm where Mr Squiggles the friendly pig was a big hit with the kids, then on to croquet and we even managed to squeeze in a coconut opening demonstration. For the kids and big kids who were more about the watersports they soaked it up down at the Jetty cafe with the water trampoline, pedal boats, tube rides, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and catamaran lessons.
At lunch time they enjoyed a delicious special buffet lunch and the buzz and excitement was contagious.
We all feel so privileged to have been able to provide this experience for these kids and look forward to doing it again next year.
Please note: for the privacy of the kids and families involved we have only included pictures of our famous Clown Issa, Gus the watersports supervisor and Michelle the newly appointed chief face painter.
