Family Camp is a unique chance for families to spend time together in a supporting and accepting environment. Each child with ASD is supported by an individual worker for the week. Parent/carers have the opportunity to attend workshops each day. Siblings are supported in groups to spend some time with other kids who are living with a brother or sister with autism.
Our camp packages include
- Positive Behaviour Supports
- Individual goals and planning
- Parent /Carer education and workshops
- Health and Wellbeing activities and supports for whole family participation

Camps allow families to have a holiday, network with other families, learn new information and strategies and to re-energize and increase confidence. Clients with Autism are supported by an experienced one to one worker. The Camps have a focus on fun and participation. We develop small goals while at camp for the child / children with autism.
Our camps are often located in Harrietville, Echuca and Mt Evelyn.
Our camps are a great opportunity to experience our service’s unique culture and focus and work alongside our experienced staff. We aim for families to leave camp with an enhanced sense of optimism.
