Program Expansion to Queensland and New South Wales in 2024
We are thrilled to be working toward expanding our programs into Queensland and New South Wales in 2024. Initial research indicates that there seems to be a gap in services in these states and we're happy with the interest in the program that's been shown to-date.
In August, our CEO, Peter McDougall and Head of People Outdoors, Sandra Murphy, visited ACA Member camps in both states to check the suitability of the sites for hosting our programs. Since then, we have now secured three different sites to host our initial programs interstate.
Save the dates!
If you'd like to join us on one of these camps, please contact the team on 03 9863 6824 or complete the online referral form here (for new campers).
Job Opportunities Now Available!
We are currently hiring Disability Support Workers to support our campers on camp. If you know a support worker in Queensland or New South Wales that is looking for casual work, please pass on our job ads to them.
There has been great interest in these roles and our team are currently busy interviewing these interstate applicants in preparation for 2024.
Having both staff and campers living in these states and attending our program will be a great achievement for the Australian Camps Association who has been working toward the expansion of this program for a number of years.
We're already spreading the word, but you can help!
We have recently exhibited at the Brisbane Disability Expo and the Sydney Care Expo. These events were a wonderful opportunity to speak with potential campers in-person.
There has been lots of expressions of interest in the program coming through and it would be wonderful if you could all help us spread the word! If you know someone living with disability in Queensland and New South Wales, we'd appreciate it if you could let them know about our program - we'd love to see as many campers on camp as possible.
To assist new campers and their support coordinators to learn about our programs, we have a number of online information sessions scheduled. If you are in QLD or NSW and you'd like to join us, please register by selecting the session you'd like to attend here.
The Australian Camps Association is very excited to get to bring our People Outdoors program interstate.
