30 Years of BF Adventure

With our 30 year anniversary approaching it would be great to hear your story.

If you have been involved with BF Adventure as a young person, volunteer, staff member, parent or any other way please email clare.brown@bfadventure.org. We have lots of exciting plans for the year ahead and would love to celebrate with you.

Senior social worker: May I take this opportunity to thank you and your team at BF for supporting him on his journey through what has been an incredibly difficult and challenging time for him. Your commitment hasn’t gone unnoticed by me or other professionals and more importantly by him.

Social worker: Wow, what an amazing piece of work. Thanks for all your support and work with him; reports from home and school have been really positive and he is now being supported by the ‘Family Plus team’. All the best and hope to work with you and your team again.

Young person: I didn’t think I was going to reach my 16th birthday, but with your help I now have a future

Parent: BF has been a life line to him and we would definitely be at ‘crisis stage’ if we did not have their input – there is still a lot of work to be done with him and I hope that he will be able to continue to attend BF with the appropriate funding.

Parent: What we experienced at BF Adventure was a welcoming, accepting, tolerant group of
individuals who gave her the freedom to be herself, to drop the mask and allow herself to have fun in a safe environment with her siblings, while challenging some of those catastrophic anxieties that normally hold her back.We have had an amazing 2 days and can’t wait to book in for a return visit. You have all built something very special in BF Adventure and we will be telling everyone we know about our time here so more can experience the amazing-ness we did

BF is joyful
BF is fun,
Even if it rains,
You feel like you’re in the sun.

A place to try new things
You never dream’t you’d do
With heaps of encouragement,
And a resounding THANK YOU!

Here we meet new people
That push our comfort zone,
Even if you have a bad day
And you need a little moan

You have changed my life
It used to be so bad
Since I have been coming here
It hasn’t been so sad

I’m more respectful and resourceful
I could be the next Bear Grylls
With everything you have taught me
I am going to use these skills
