kids camps


On camp children are able to laugh, play, sing, dance, run amok and have fun – things that most Australians view as essential ingredients of growing up. For the children who attend, the camps also promote personal growth and the development life skills, and enhance a sense of value and worth.

Our 1:1 ratio allows for one-on-one attention, with which many children thrive. Many of the benefits stem simply from the kids being able to spend time with compassionate, caring and enthusiastic people who can act as positive role models in their lives. 

Camps also serve the purpose of providing short-term respite care. This allows the families or carers of children the chance to cope with their difficulties, secure in the knowledge that their children are being well cared for and having fun.

We use a variety of campsites which all provide cabin accommodation, onsite cooked meals and large recreational spaces. We travel in 12 and 22 seat buses. 

Key activities on a kids camp include visiting a local farm, swimming at the beach or pool, over-night camp out, bike riding, archery, art and craft, cooking, games and free time. ​
