Before and After School Care


Each Camp Australia program is unique and is tailored to the community it is part of. Programs adopt each school's values, the interests of its kids and adapting to the environment that surrounds it. However, all Camp Australia programs do have one thing in common; they make kids smile.

The Staff and programs are backed by Camp Australia's national resources, specialist practices and support systems developed throughout our 25 years of operation.

We focus on developing the overall wellbeing of kids in a safe environment, fostering a healthy, active lifestyle, friendships and new skills all while having fun. We partner with kids families and communities to ensure Camp Australia is something kids want to be a part of.
