CCNZ offers Camp Purple, a camp for children with IBD in NZ, providing a supportive environment that fosters lifelong friendships.

Auckland

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), are chronic autoimmune conditions that wreak havoc on the digestive system, causing debilitating pain and severely impacting quality of life. New Zealand has one of the highest incidence rates of IBD globally, and for children, navigating life with these conditions can be even more daunting. Missed school days, frequent hospitalisations, and social isolation become the norm.

That's where CCNZ steps in with Camp Purple Live, a New Zealand-based summer camp held annually to support children and teens aged 9 to 17 living with IBD from across the nation. For many, this camp is a first-time experience.

Camp Purple Live is not just a getaway; it's a lifeline. It fosters self-confidence, independence, self-esteem, resilience, and empowerment in attendees. For the first time, these kids get to meet peers who truly understand their daily struggles. They forge invaluable support networks and form friendships that last a lifetime, making them feel less alone in their journey.

Our next camp is scheduled for January 2025 at Camp Adair in Auckland. This camp is entirely free for attendees, made possible only through the generous support of our sponsors.

Your contribution, no matter the size, will help us ensure that Camp Purple Live 2025 becomes a reality for these incredible kids.

About us
