Connecting Youth to Nature, Culture, and Country

OUR PURPOSE

We know how challenging it can be supporting a child with special needs. Our school holiday camps allow you as a caregiver and others in the family to have a break – all while developing a child’s abilities through interactive, hands on fun. Throughout the last 10 years running camps for youth, we’ve found that nature is the perfect vehicle for self development!

 

A huge part of what we do is facilitating friendships and strengthening bonds between participants. Our activities facilitate creating new connections and improving social skills of participants. This gives young people a chance to develop stronger support networks for when times get tough – allowing them the best possibility of working through stress, anxiety and life’s inevitable challenges.

  • Engage Participants In Exciting, Fun, Hands-on, Nature-based activities
  • Specifically Aid Personal And Social Capabilities Of Participants Through Targeted On-camp Activities
  • 1:1 or 1:2 Staff to Participant Ratio
Through our Respite Camps, we offer children a chance to enjoy camp activities and meet new people, try new things and develop friendships and life skills. Our Camps are a home away from home for kids which also means you as a carer can unwind.

What Sets Us Apart?

Fun, Safe, and Easy to Organise – We are experts at ensuring our action-packed First Nations camps are fun and diverse, providing activities which provide unique challenges to overcome, or exciting opportunities to try new things! Our experienced team knows how to make a successful program, manage risks, and how to deliver it smoothly every time. We worry about all the logistics to ensure an easy to organise program!

Our Focus on Indigenous Youth – By placing First Nation voices at the heart of these programs, we ensure that our Indigenous cultural camps are culturally safe places for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth. We place youth at the centre of everything we do, ensuring that our programs work towards furthering their own personal journeys. 

On Country – Our programs are focused on connecting with Country. We  understand the diversity of Language Groups and cultural connections with place, and strive to ensure each one of our programs is unique to the community we are working with and connected with the regions we are going to.
