Australian Camps Association Inclusion Guide for Camps & Outdoor Activity Providers - Now Available

The 2020 Inclusion Guide and Self-Assessment Resource for Camps and Outdoor Activity Providers is Now Available.

The Guide is aimed at anyone who is keen to make their venues or services more inclusive to all groups - seniors, disability, CALD, aboriginal, women, LGBTQI, etc and provides practical advice and examples on overcoming barriers to participation. Being better able to provide excellent services for all people, no matter their circumstances, is not just the right thing to do from an ethical and philosophical standpoint, it also makes real business sense to diversify your clientele.

The Australian Camps Association makes this invaluable resource available to all, and hopes that it will be another useful step towards a more inclusive society. We want to thank Maree Feutrill for her incredible work in researching and writing the Guide and the Victorian government Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions for their financial support in making this project happen.

You can download an e-edition of the Guide here, or contact the Australian Camps Association for a hard copy, which will be provided at a small fee.

"This Guide is a practical resource to support operators in the planning, design and development of inclusive camps and outdoor businesses.

The resource is underpinned by the concept and principals of Universal Design, assisting business operators to develop strategies that enables people from diverse backgrounds to function independently and with dignity during a camping and outdoor experience..."
