Camps

We offer specialised "On the Go Adventures" for individuals that have additional needs; our camps are fun, exciting and unique which provides participants with a sense of adventure and achievement.

On the Go Adventures

We support our participants to achieve personal goals in an enjoyable and supportive environment while fostering social participation and independence. Each camp provides activities with a focus on independent living skills, social skills and community access.
 
We experience our camps within the comfort of a small group and the possibilities are endless. Camps are designed on a person centred model where participants will engage in a variety of skill building activities including teamwork, leadership development and active communication skills to achieve their personal goals.
Locations vary each camp to make the most of the weather, current events and areas of interest for the campers.
