A camp for the whole family! A time to relax, recharge & connect with others.
You will have the support of caring, compassionate autism-trained professionals.
Practical and inclusive support and respite in a camp environment, for the whole family.
Our camps run for 5 nights, with a focus on being in nature. Camps are available to all Melbourne, regional and rural Victorian families.
It is the community of camp that makes it so special. Our camps are a place for the whole family to build connections.
Our families find immense value from the support of other families going through similar experiences. Parents connect and have a dinner out together. Siblings enjoy their own program. Autistic young people meet and support each other.
Our camps incorporate positive behaviour support and visual supports into the daily program. We have professional expertise in autism and offer individualised strategies and supports within the camp environment.
Health and Wellbeing
We ditch the screens and engage in simple activities for health and wellbeing. We love getting outdoors and enjoying nature.
We offer a camp that has a balanced program of relaxation, outdoor experiences, nature, art and craft, yoga, games, healthy foods and exercise.
“I was more than sceptical driving to family camp, but it was life changing. The kids and I felt accepted and supported. I left camp feeling empowered, but most importantly, we established strong friendships with other families and we no longer feel like we are doing this alone.”
“I was a little apprehensive about coming but the Mansfield Autism staff made me feel at ease and are so professional. Big tick to our support worker who has been so patient with our child. You have an amazing organisation and should feel very proud.“
