It is only with love and best wishes to our camp 'daughter' Brooke Van Twist, that we farewell her after 15 wonderful years...following the epic highs, lows and in-betweens....

Brookey, from all your Forest Edge family and camp clients, it has been the absolute best having you represent us as Work Experience student; Trainee Instructor; Junior Instructor; Senior Instructor; Activity Manager and Camp Manager. Few could match your devotion; endurance, professionalism; resilience or ability to support those around you. 'Thank you' will never seem enough for all you've given of yourself, but we hope you'll know how grateful we are for your contribution to the growth of Forest Edge and all the lives you've touched along the way.

Embrace your future adventures as you have done here lovely woman and we'll always be around for you to run back to, when you need a reminder of your 'big back yard office!' #forestedge Sonia Watson and Watto xoxo

South West Mums

We would like to acknowledge the hardship faced by the entire community currently and send our wishes of good health and calm to all our clients and families at this tough and foreign time.
We miss living and breathing the camp 'life and energy' which comes from fun with and activity facilitation of, kids being at Forest Edge. Sending virtual hugs to all our team and clients- students, teachers, clubs/churches and leaders. Stay safe and we hope to see you all back healthy and ready to groove some more camp moves when the air 'clears' :)
For now a little post for anyone at home and wondering how to fill in time....

If schools are closed & we have our children at home, let’s get our kids to write notes, colour pictures & make cards & mail them to local nursing homes. The elderly in these nursing homes may not be allowed visitors right now & it will brighten their day - please check with aged care homes before sending ❀️

This extraordinarily talented group rehearsed during their recent camp.
Rhythmos is Curtin University's award-winning contemporary a cappella choir.
Get the family along to see them during Perth's Fringe Festival!!! https://www.facebook.com/events/888507274877697/

Nothing like a cool dip in a dam, sunsets with friends and meals served by sopranos in hairnets to recharge during an intensive vocal boot camp.
Rhythmos have been hard at work in preparation for our fringe show! If you want to hear what we’ve been up to, come along to A Blast from the Past on 31st Jan, 1st and 2nd Feb. Ticket are available through the Fringe World website!

We'll miss you so do come back to visit again soon!!! Thank you for our lovely shirt St Anthonys and Bella for your design #stanthonysgreenmount #forestedge #schoolcampswa

Planning for a better world for our kids!

** Plastic Swap **
Plastic is used in almost every single daily activity. If you are looking to ditch plastic then pegs are a super easy swap! Choosing stainless steel pegs is not only better for our environment, as they are 100% recyclable but also stronger and cheaper in the long run. Bare & Co. Stainless Steel Pegs come in 3 different sizes and grades in packs of 30 and 50 with a FREE canvas bag for storage!
