Our aim is to provide a variety of outdoor adventure camps and excursions for enrolled children and youth that provide new experiences, challenge, build self-confidence and provide life-long skills.

Our role is to:

  • Provide educational, recreational and socially fun opportunities outside the local community for children and youth who would otherwise have limited access to regular activities
  • Deliver a program of structured outdoor camps and excursions suitable to the specific needs of children and youth
  • Provide a variety of activities that challenge the children and youth’s comfort zone in a safe and supportive setting
  • Promote positive peer and staff relationships and facilitate team work

A snapshot of camping activities:

North, south and western NSW:
Children’s Camps –

  • the opportunity to venture away from home for the first time, build friendships and experience activities such as staying on a farm, exploring the Blue Mountains or the fun of a seaside holiday
  • adventure activities for older children who are transitioning to the youth program, such as camping, sand boarding, dolphin watching and surfing

Youth Camps –

  • Time out from the day to day routines for older youth, to spend time with friends and strengthen their relationships with staff
  • Build confidence and self awareness through activities such as abseiling, ropes courses and horse riding
