How we do it


Support

A central part of the Kookaburra Kids Camp is the Chat Group run each day by our team of experienced volunteer leaders. Chat Group provides an opportunity to learn about mental illness and how it affects families; share their experiences and to discover and improve their coping skills and resilience.


Camps

Held over a weekend at various locations, camps provide kids with an amazing experience where they participate in activities such as canoeing, archery, giant swing, go carts, craft, laser tag and much more.


Activities

Held during school holidays Kookaburra Kids catch up with friends from camp for a fun FREE day out. Activities can include ice skating, laser tag, bowling, movies, putt putt golf and beach activities just to name a few.
