Adventure For All Outdoor Experiences for People with Disabilities
People Outdoors, a branch of the Australian Camps Association, was established in 1989 to provide outdoor recreation for people of all ages with physical or intellectual disabilities. The Australian Camps Association is a registered NDIS service provider certified with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and accredited with the Quality Tourism Framework (formerly Australian Tourism Accreditation Program (ATAP)).
Programs include single day through to week long residential camps and provide people with disabilities the opportunity to experience the social and developmental benefits of adventure outdoors. In some cases, participation is assisted by our charity, the People Outdoors Fund. All programs are staffed by trained and passionate professionals and volunteers.
People Outdoors programs are hallmarked by a high level of communication with parents/guardians and campers, including a personal pre-camp meeting and post program evaluation. Our programs only operate at Australian Camps Association member residential camps that are accredited with the Quality Tourism Framework. People Outdoors programs are outcomes focused and are all about fun, personal development, social connection and enjoying the great outdoors.
People Outdoors are experts in providing outdoor experiences for people with disabilities.
My daughter loves the volunteers at people outdoors, she finds peer interaction difficult but having the volunteers of all ages gives her the opportunity to feel part of a friendship group. We love turning up at drop off and hearing lots of different people calling her name and making her feel so welcome. Thank you people outdoors x Michelle (Camper Parent).
