For those of you that experienced the first ever, long awaited
ChIPS camp, in January this year, you will know the anticipation of
the next one in just over a month!
At the first camp, the Wangaratta group was represented by one boy,
John. This year more people from the group showed interest in
coming along. There was only one problem, being able to raise
the money to get to Melbourne. So Megan, the Wangaratta
co-ordinator, decided to come up with a way that the ChIPS members
could raise the money and create awareness of the program in the
area all in one hit. A movie night was the best way to do
this. They advertised in the local paper and let the other
ChIPS regions know, creating as much awareness as possible.
So people from regional ChIPS as well as Melbourne came along.
Some of us met at La Porchetta for dinner before the movie and then
joined the others for the feature, which was "Monsters Inc".
The movie portrayed the
adventures of Boo, a human girl who visits the world of
monsters. The night was a complete success as the movie
theatre was nearly full. They raised the money needed to
journey to Melbourne, and had a great time doing so. We will all be
glad to see them at camp in January.
