Check out what's happening

Wondering what happened at the latest state camp? Secret men’s breakfast? What’s been happening with the Youth Project? Look no further, you can get all the goss here!

Right now we're busy preparing for the Youth Canoe Journey! 

The Youth Canoe Journey is an exciting new HFA youth program to build education and life skills for young people. The program is designed to assist young people in their personal development and build connections with others living with a bleeding disorder. We’ve teamed up with adventure therapy group Purple Soup to bring you this exciting experience.

The plan for the trip will be to meet up in Melbourne on the Thursday night, before heading up to the Murray River, where we will be taught how to canoe by Purple Soup’s experienced instructors. From there we will begin our journey along the river, stopping each night to set up camp until Sunday, when we’ll head back to Melbourne.

This is not just a weekend away, participants will be challenged to work as a team, overcome obstacles, and develop initiative skills.
