SINCE 1980 Lions District N4 has been holding annual camps at Licola Wilderness Village for children with special needs with many Leeton shire youngsters attending during that time.
Licola is a small and attractive village beside the Macalister River, 254 kilometres east of Melbourne.
The township of Licola is owned entirely by the Lions Clubs of Victoria and southern NSW.
It is the only privately-owned town in Victoria and is the only town that generates its own electricity, pumps and treats its own water and is responsible for its waste management.
In 2020 District N4 would have been conducting camps for 40 years, but our celebrations where rudely interrupted by the COVID-19 virus and closing of borders between states.
The good news is that the 40th anniversary celebrations have been held in 2021.
The theme for this camp, which ran earlier this month, was celebrations.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Other than the usual activities such as archery, high and low ropes courses, trampolines, sports stadium, mini golf, climbing wall, arts and craft activities, flying fox and canoes, the camp concert was replaced with a cabaret dinner dance.
Campers departed Leeton on April 10 and returned on April 16.
Five campers joined the bus at Leeton.
Four were sponsored by Lions Clubs of Leeton and Yanco. The fifth camper was from Dubbo, but is originally from Leeton and was visiting his grandmother.
All campers had a great time during their week at Licola.
