Troy was a former Camp Counsellor for Camp Blue. His loveable and optimistic personality was felt by all in everything he did. He was happiest when he was giving to others, which is why Troy was such an influential and inspirational Camp Blue counsellor, looked up to by so many.
Troy was a recognised and respected member of the Shellharbour Life Saving Community, as well as the local Football and Cricket Clubs and also Jamberoo Tennis Club, all of which he passionately enjoyed. Troy’s smile was infectious and his ability to approach a situation with positivity, greatly impacted everyone around him. A gentle and considerate man, Troy was a friend to those who were lucky enough to meet him. Most of all Troy loved every moment of his time at Camp Blue.
Sadly Troy became a victim of un-diagnosed type ONE diabetes, taken too soon by DKA (ketoacidosis) in 2014.
Camp Blue runs from the school grounds of Monte St Angelo Mercy Collegeat North Sydney and sponsors the Troy Oldroyd GoodTimes Scholarship Programme in partnership with the DANII Foundation for a child with type ONE diabetes and their typeNONE friend during National Diabetes Awareness week in July. It is open for children in Kindergarten through to Year 9.
About Camp Blue:
Today’s society offers so many options for our children, however parents soon discover that most holiday programs cater for one of their children and for only one of their interests. Camp Blueis unique by providing a fun, engaging and dynamic program for all children, catering to individual personalities and interests.
Camp Blue is based on the American Summer Camp Model, where children are empowered to make their own decisions through learning and enjoyment, forming lifelong friendships with other campers and being guided by trusted and professional staff.
Each camper chooses their program that they wish to participate in throughout the week. There is a selection of up to 20 activities each session where a camper chooses 5. They then participate in those 5 activities each day they are at camp.Each activity is taught by an experienced and qualified instructor. Camp Blue understands that the most important thing to a child is to have fun at camp, so you can be assured that while your camper is learning and developing their skills they will be having a blast!
Friday is the last day of Camp – dedicated toraising awareness for type ONE diabetes and all will share in the fun.
Terms & Conditions: By completing this scholarship application for my child, I acknowledge that if my child is selected I will arrange for my child & their chosen friend to be transported to and from Camp Blue each day and I will finance any accommodation and meals as required during the week my child is attending camp.
