Sensational Kids Camp

Intensive therapy camp to build confidence and self-esteem!

Our very first Sensational Kids Camp will be held from Tuesday, 2 October 2018 to Friday, 5 October 2018 at Woodman Point Recreation Camp. The camp will consist of four days of day camp with the final night a sleep over.

The camp is for children aged 8 to 12 years with challenges in self-regulation, independence and social skills.   Senses Australia’s Sensational Kids Camp will aim to provide an opportunity for children to have fun and a rewarding camp experience with the addition of therapeutic intervention tailored to meeting the children’s individualised goals.

Children will participate in a range of recreational activities and therapist lead activities aimed at individual participation and group experience.  Children will have the opportunity to gain skills and confidence in coordination, self-organisation, being a friend, managing their feelings and much more.
