Camps with support

“Camp”. A word that can strike instant excitement and a decent amount of nerves into a parent’s heart. Ha! But I’m not talking about just any camp. Did you know that the NDIS can fund camping offering carer support? What a wonderful way for your child to learn new skills, meet new friends, and flex their independence muscles in a supported environment. And, let’s not forget, give you some downtime.

Let's explore how camps with support can align with NDIS goals for participants and their families:

1. Social Butterfly Effect: Camps are social hubs. They offer the perfect backdrop for kids to meet peers, form bonds and build lifelong friendships. Social interaction promotes emotional well-being and helps in honing interpersonal skills.

2. Dive into New Activities: Camps are filled with activities – from kayaking to singing around the campfire. These activities teach kids resilience, patience, and the joy of trying new things.

3. Learning Through Fun: Camps weave learning with fun. Through activities and games, participants pick up essential life skills without even realising it. It's learning minus the boring bits!

4. Independence Day, Every Day: With one-to-one support, kids get a gentle nudge towards doing things on their own. It's about taking small, confident steps towards independence, all while having a safety net of support

5. Natural Stress Busters: Let's face it – nature is therapeutic. The fresh air, open skies, and lush greenery can work wonders for mental well-being

6. Support for Families: It's a win-win. While your child is having the time of their life, you get to take a breather, recharge, and focus on yourself. And when you reunite, you'll both have stories to share.

7. Customised Experience: With NDIS backing, the camp experience can be tailored to match your child's interests and needs. So, whether they're into arts or adventure, there's something for every camper.

8. Confidence in Spades: Overcoming challenges, be it climbing a wall or making a new friend, instils confidence. And this newfound confidence? It's a gift that keeps giving, even after the camp is over.

Camps with support are more than just a few days away from home. They're a chance for growth, exploration, and tons of fun! And with the NDIS having your back, it's an experience that promises benefits long after the tents are packed away.

While I've put my heart into aligning these tips with your NDIS path, the road can have its twists. Remember, these are just suggestions. Dive in, explore, and find what truly works for you. Sending you all my best vibes!
