Camp Australia has been providing before and after school care, pupil-free day care and holiday programs for over 30 years. We operate in government, independent and religious schools to provide quality and enriching care for primary school aged children.
Our service programs are child-led, extending their learning and encouraging curiosity. We guide children's growth with enriching and engaging activities tailored for all abilities, cultures and interests. From skills they will use forever, to experiences they can only experience at Your OSHC and Rocketeers, our programs are for every child, every day.
Safety and security of the children and their families is at the forefront of every decision we make. Our unique safety supervision method is called VSHAPE which means the children are always in Vision, Scanned for visibility, Headcounts every 15 minutes, Anticipates children’s movements, Positioning to ensure complete vision, and Engagement with the children at all times. Adding to our commitment to safety is our secure app system called One Child, which allows parents to sign children in and out of the service in a safe and compliant way. At every school we also establish an individualised Risk Management Plan, a Medical Management Action Plan and our proprietary inclusion program.
We tailor our parent fees and licence fees to your school to offer competitive returns for your school, whilst providing affordable care for families.
We commit to investing back into your school. From playgrounds to kitchens or resources, Camp Australia assesses your OSHC needs and meets them to ensure the service is always top quality.
