Camp Unity connects families and whānau impacted by traumatic brain injury.

Camp Unity is a two-day event which brings together families and whānau, including parents, children and guardians affected by traumatic brain injury. The 2019 camp was held from 11–13 October in Rotorua.

Te Rina is an advocate for whānau living with a family member’s trauma. She has seen first-hand the gaps in support for children and young people working through trauma and low self-esteem, following a car accident which left her brother Ray with a traumatic brain injury.

This was Te Rina’s inspiration to create Camp Unity – to develop strength and unity and form healthy relationships, teaching children to understand their individuality and develop their self-worth.
