Camp Australia is a family owned and operated business. Established in 1987, by brothers Anthony and Andrew Phillips, the business is built around the philosophy of Making Kids Smile.
Everything we do is underpinned by four governing values:
By providing services that embody these four values, we are able to provide programs that children enjoy participating in, and provide them with a sense of security and inclusion, whilst also forming strong partnerships with school communities and corporate organisations.
Our Programs are designed to enhance the development of the children’s skills, knowledge, and understanding in physical, social, emotional and intellectual areas. These are planned to meet the needs of the developing child throughout the middle childhood years. The atmosphere created promotes a sense of belonging for the community and family. Our wide range of planned activities and resources help to:
- Encourage interaction and develop social skills across various age groups and cultures
- Allow for small and large group work to enhance learning opportunities and foster healthy dynamics
- Provide exciting and innovative activities that meet each child’s developmental needs.
- Encourage a safe, secure and stimulating environment that will promote emotional, social, intellectual and physical growth.
Our program philosophy is focused on “active and passive” activity as well as skill development and general play. Depending on the interests of the children in the Service, our Coordinators may break out into a number of different simultaneous activities to cater for both active and passive preferences.
Special interest activities such as videos, television, computers and electronic games are offered within a well balanced Program of activities. The content of such activities and games, and the amount of time allocated for children to participate, is measured and limited to ensure it is appropriate for all children present.
As a part of the program, children are encouraged and supported where they may choose to complete homework. We understand that providing such an environment can be very important to families, as it means in today’s time poor society, that when the child goes home, they will be able to spend quality time with their family, as all school work has been done.
When attending the Service, the children receive healthy, nutritious snacks. Breakfast served daily includes such foods as muffins, toast, crumpets and a selection of cereals. Water and milk are available for the children to drink.
Afternoon tea follows the Heart Smart Choices food strategy; this includes a serving of fresh fruit and vegetables every afternoon. Examples of the food provided may include; a selection of sandwiches, salada biscuits, or rice crackers with various toppings and water is the preferred drink. Cooking activities may be offered as an accompaniment to the snack provided.
Camp Australia maintains a strict Sun Smart policy: Staff will observe sun protection practices in accordance with relevant Government guidelines to minimise risks to children and themselves. All year round, especially during Term 1 & Term 4 an appropriate hat must be worn outside by each child and staff member. Sunscreen is also available at the Service for children and staff to self administer.
