Sport and activities for children

Our activity programs are the perfect way for kids with disabilities to try new things, make friends, and have fun!

Our sports and activities services

Fun activity programs

Whether your child is creative, sporty, or loves playing games, we can help design a program full of activities they’ll love – and that suit your family.

Your child can get involved with all sorts of fun activities and excursions – just a few ideas include:

  • BBQs and trips to the park
  • Movies
  • Indoor games
  • Concerts and shows
  • Sports and outdoor games
  • Arts and crafts
  • Dance and movement
  • Music groups
  • Joining a local sports team or church group

Youth groups

For children of all ages, our youth groups are a great way to meet new friends and have new experiences.

Youth group members get together at least once a month to enjoy a wide range of activities – and we actually plan the activities together with the families as well as the kids themselves!

With the support of both Support Workers and volunteers, our groups get to enjoy all sorts of things including BBQs and outdoor games, going to dinner and a movie, or doing an activity like indoor rock climbing.

Holiday camps

If your child would love to get away for a few days and spend time with other kids, our holiday camps could be just the thing!

Our camps offer a range of exciting activities including bush-walking, games and songs around the campfire. We also offer the chance to explore the local area such as checking out the penguin parade at Philip Island, Yarra Valley Chocolatier, Healesville Sanctuary wildlife Zoo, and going strawberry picking!

No matter what activities are on the agenda, our camps give children a special opportunity to learn, make friends, and support each other.

And of course, with trained and experienced leaders taking care of our campers, you can relax knowing your child is in great hands.

What does the NDIS fund?

Activity programs and youth groups

If your child is an NDIS participant who has been approved for funding in one of the following areas, you may be able to access our sports and activities services:

  • Assistance with Social and Community Participation under Capacity Building Supports
  • Community and Social Activity under Core Supports
  • Improved Daily Living Skills under Core Supports

Holidays

If your child has funding in one of the following areas, you may be able to use this funding for our holiday camps:

  • Community and Social Activity under Core Supports
  • Community Participation Activities under Capacity Building Support

Important: If you are using this same funding for a vacation, the NDIS will not cover the cost of your holiday, it will only pay for your the hours provided by your child’s staff support. You will therefore need to cover the cost of any airfares or travel costs, tickets, accommodation, and activities for both your child, your family, and your support staff.
