Family Camps

A camp for the whole family! A time to relax, recharge & connect with others.

Our camps build social, recreational and communication skills. We have professional expertise in autism and offer individualised strategies and supports in a purpose built camp environment.

Camp Based

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.

Making Connections

It is the community of camp that makes it so special. Families find immense value from the support of other families going through similar experiences. Autistic young people meet and support each other. Parents connect and have time together. Siblings enjoy their own program. Camps provide parents with much needed respite, as children are supported by trained staff.

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.”


“My husband and I have not had a real rest together since having our child. Our lives are a constant relay of taking turns looking after our children. We actually unwound on this camp knowing everything was sorted.”
