After being diagnosed with a rare muscle wasting condition at just one year old, Joshua’s family faced uncertainty. Today their hope for Joshua is for him to live a rewarding life, full of fun and opportunity.
Josh attended is first camp at 5 years old. He was excited about the adventures ahead and threw himself into all activities. He especially loved swimming and laser tag and came home full of fierce, new-found independence. His mum couldn’t be prouder.
At camp, Joshua had five whole days where he could just be a regular kid. No challenge was too hard and he learnt that anything was possible when he put his mind to it!
"He just GLOWS. He spoke non-stop for the first week at home about camp!"
