With school holidays fast approaching, here is a great way for your kids to make lasting memories and new friendships.

Aussie Kids Adventure Camps have a four-day camp from October 8 - 11.

Since 2017, over 200 campers have experienced the great outdoors and stepped outside their comfort zone on camp.

The Catch-All Camps Program

It's not just school holidays when your kids can benefit.

As a leading provider of adventure camps for children with autism, mental health, intellectual and other disabilities, they also offer the "Catch-all Camps".

It is an NDIS approved weekend overnight camp that operates throughout the Mid North Coast, North Coast and Great Lakes regions.

"Our staff are qualified, experienced and trauma-informed," says Tamara Griffiths.

"So many children supported by the NDIS find it hard to make friendships, the camp offers a safe opportunity for them to form strong bonds with other campers through shared experiences.

"As our campers become regulars on camp they expand their bravery, resilience and independence."

The program runs a six-month cycle and offers the familiarity of the same location.

Parents and carers can gain respite, safe in the knowledge that there is constant 1:3 qualified supervision.

It includes transport from a city centre location as well as overnight accommodation and nutritious meals.

And of course, the chance to make new friends.
