Claytons Camping With Military Security And Good Fun
Have you heard of Exercise Stone Pillow?

EXSP is an initiative in its fourth year with two primary objectives. Firstly, it simulates sleeping rough for one night to educate participants of the challenges faced by homeless veterans and their families. Participants sleep outside on a grassed area, providing their own tent, sleeping bag and basic mattress, for the night.

More importantly EXSP aims to raise funds to house and assist transitioning Australian homeless ex service personnel by constructing a purpose-built facility which will accomodate between 16 to 24 veterans at any one time. This facility will be a safe environment in which our veterans can start their journey to recovery.

I have no interest in the politics, or the rights and the wrongs. The bottom line is simply that we have young men and women returning from service overseas who need some additional assistance to assimilate for an assortment of reasons. Sometimes we walk by these people in the street unaware that they at war with their own demons. Sometimes their battles can touch our own lives.

I gave up camping twenty years ago because of a personal preference for bubble baths. This event may just change that situation.
