family camps


The family unit, however you define it, is the cornerstone of our community. A community that cultivates the strengths of families with time, effort and imagination will be rewarded with a community that flourishes and grows.

A strong family, more than any other force, shapes the attitudes, the hopes, the ambitions, and the values of children.


We believe strong families are not accidents but rather the result of attention and support. Our family camp programs help and support families to become stronger and therefore better able to nurture and support their children.

Our camps focus on not simply providing an escape from the difficulties of home, but also building a sense of familial unity, bonding, resilience and strength.  Social isolation is addressed as many families establish relationships with each other and a sense of community.

Referring agencies regularly tell us that our family camps provide a rare opportunity for families to have a holiday from the stresses of their lives and build relationships with others who can genuinely empathise with their
challenges and struggles.
