This is our biggest event of the year! Camp Confidence is a therapy intensive camp for 8 to 11 year olds based on the Camp Jabiru model run in Sydney, Australia. It is our pleasure to bring this opportunity to Perth families for the seventh year in a row. Camp Confidence allows children a fun and supportive environment to enjoy the camp experience which is specifically tailored to meet therapeutic goals. In order to develop confidence emotionally, socially and with their movement, children need to experience the ‘just right’ challenge. Camp offers numerous opportunities with therapeutic intervention to support children gain greater skills in independence, making friends, managing their feelings and much more!
Camp Confidence will be highly staffed with Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Students, an approximate one adult to every two children. Children will be allocated into camp groups with a maximum of 10 children and minimum of 4 live in staff. Parents will receive a daily newsletter with updates from their child’s camp group. A nurse will also be on site for the entire duration of the camp to support children with medication and other first aid needs.
Please read our Frequently Asked Questions page which is regularly updated for more information.

Step 1: Complete the Therapy Intensive Application form (link below)
Step 2: You will receive an email to say your application has been received and you have been placed onto the waitlist. This does not confirm a place on camp.
Step 3: Unfortunately, whilst we would love to bring every child with us, due to the large volume of applications we receive, not everyone will get a place, however we will place you on a waitlist should a spot become available, or for other camp opportunities.
Step 4: If a place is offered you will be sent an invoice or service agreement for pre-payment. Once payment is received or a service agreement is signed, then the place is confirmed.
Step 5: A staff member will be in touch to complete your included pre camp interview, goal setting and assessment session.
