ADELAIDE captain Rory Sloane has led a contingent of Crows players to Kangaroo Island after the devastation of the recent bushfires.
Veteran Bryce Gibbs, All-Australian defender Rory Laird and midfielder Myles Poholke also made the trip to the popular South Australian tourist destination on Tuesday and Wednesday, along with draftees Harry Schoenberg, Josh Worrell, Ronin O'Connor and Lachlan Gollant.
The players visited Kangaroo Island's Community Education's Kingscote campus and conducted a coaching clinic at the Parndana Football Club.
"I was speaking to (Crows player development manager) Emma Bahr, who is from KI, and I was asking if there was anything we could do," Sloane told the Crows' website.

"We decided we wanted to help give the local kids a smile and a laugh after everything that's happened, and also give the parents a bit of a break."
Kangaroo Island suffered significant damage during the bushfires, but visitors are encouraged to return to the idyllic holiday spot to put money back into the community.
"So many of these fire-affected areas would have lost a lot, particularly financially in their peak tourism period, so it's important we help out," Sloane said.

"It's great for the young guys to see such a significant and beautiful part of South Australia and have the opportunity to support it."
The Crows and Port Adelaide raised more than $1 million for the SA Bushfire Appeal – that will directly help people in the Adelaide Hills and Kangaroo Island affected by the bushfires – from Sunday's T20 Bushfire Showdown at Adelaide Oval.
The Crows players visited Kangaroo Island on their day off and will return to training on Thursday.
