Accessibility Manager (Camps) - Part Time

The Not For Profit Australian Camps Association (ACA), the national peak body for camps and associated providers, believes that participating in supported outdoor experiences through camps and adventure activities leads to happier and healthier lives.

Our vision is to facilitate ‘more people outdoors more often', and our mission is to ‘develop, support and promote the delivery of camp experiences that provide positive community, social and personal outcomes’.

The ACA was formed in 2005 when the Camping Association of Victoria merged with the Tasmanian, South Australian and Queensland Camping Associations.  Our three key tasks are to 1) help groups of all kinds gain access to camp experiences, 2) provide information, resources, services and training that helps our members deliver excellent experiences for those groups and 3) wherever possible, align both 1 and 2 with government policy – eg active ageing.

The Australian Camps Association includes People Outdoors, established in 1989 to provide camps for people of all ages with a disability, and the Great Getaways, camps for people over the age of 55. Both of these programs are organised by the ACA and delivered by ACA member camps.

The Role

This role is pivotal in promoting the mission and work of the Australian Camps Association as we expand our services into regional Victoria and ultimately across Australia. It is an opportunity to contribute significantly to the wellbeing of both people living with a disability and older Australians.

The role is part time during business hours (three days a week, with the potential to become full time) and is based in Ballarat. Some travel will be required from time to time, especially to Melbourne in the early stages of the project.

This role will initially be funded through a Victorian government grant and is designed specifically to help the ACA provide services beyond metropolitan Melbourne. This project is designed as a pilot for future growth into other regional Victorian centres and interstate, so some ‘learning on the go’ will be necessary.
