About People Outdoors
People Outdoors is a community based non-profit organisation established by the Australian Camps Association in 1989. People Outdoors strives to provide recreation activities to all people with disabilities.
This includes various types of programs to enable children, teenagers and adults with disabilities to participate in outdoor adventure programs and weekend camping experiences.
People Outdoors works with individuals who have a physical or intellectual disability or an acquired brain injury.
Programs may be restricted to individuals or groups from a certain area, however, we can work in all areas if appropriate funding can be sourced. Please see our programs page for more details.
People Outdoors strives to provide the highest level of service, safety and enjoyment on all of our programs.
