A Community of Saints 2018 Community Perspective 2018 - Page 7

Community Camp Community Camp is a golden opportunity for the club to give back to the community, while also allowing a future generation of Sainters to meet and greet their heroes. In 2018, players and staff visited the Mornington Peninsula, City of Frankston, Greater Dandenong and the City of Kingston. Players facilitated clinics with local schools and junior football clubs, visited the elderly in nursing homes, visited patients in hospitals and participated in several programs with our community partners. Country visits Country visits give us the chance to get outside our own backyard and promote AFL throughout the state. The Saints visited multiple areas in Victoria including Lakes Entrance, Foster, Yarram, Euroa, Bendigo and the Western Port region. Each group participated in multiple football clinics and activities with local schools, visiting hundreds of school students all in just one day. 7
