The Children’s Mobility Service is excited to offer a range of camps and group programs during 2019. Our group programs aim to offer Orientation and Mobility and Occupational Therapy training in a dynamic group setting which also provides children with vision loss and their families’ opportunities to socially engage with their peers.
To assist families who are on NDIS and for those who will soon be on NDIS, pricing has been included based on February 2019 prices. Please note for those students who do not yet have an NDIS plan the cost will be covered by philanthropic funding. If you would like to discuss any aspects of our planned camp program please contact our customer service team on 1800 804 805.

All camp programs will provide students with the opportunity to develop a range of Orientation and Mobility and Occupational Therapy skills and practice these skills in a variety of different environments considerate of their age and skill ability.
