Camps

Gateways’ capacity building camps offer people with disabilities the opportunity to learn new skills and have fun in a safe, supportive environment with friends.

If you have a current NDIS plan and would like to access our programs but are not yet registered with Gateways, please contact us on 03 5292 2984 or email: intake@gateways.com.au

Expressions of interest close 6 weeks before camp starts. Late expressions may mean missing out. Confirmation of camps will be sent 4-6 weeks before camp. For more information email: camps@gateways.com.au or phone 03 5292 9206.

We offer a diverse range of age-appropriate camps throughout the year, giving you the chance to experience memorable holidays and make new friends.

We understand the importance of families getting a break from caring responsibilities with the knowledge their loved one is having fun, enjoying new experiences, and developing skills in a safe and supported environment.

NDIS Funding

If you have an NDIS package, NDIS rates will apply. These activities come under ‘Core Supports’. Support costs are charged from your NDIS plan and are separate to activity costs.

Camp Activity Costs

Camp activity costs are an out-of-pocket cost to the participant for the accommodation, food and activities for the duration of a camp. Activity costs can be paid from a participants NDIS plan under specific circumstances, but this will be on a camp-by-camp basis and will require written confirmation from a Support Coordinator, LAC or NDIS planner.

Medication

If the participant attending will be bringing medication to the camp, a medication treatment sheet is required to be completed for each camp attended. All medications in tablet and capsule form should be in a Webster pack from the chemist. For any other types of medications, please keep them in their original packaging with labels intact.

Cancellations

Cancellations made within 7 days of the camp (including COVID-19 related cancellations) will incur a charge for the supports. All our camps are paid for in advance, a cancellation fee equal to the price of the activity cost will apply if a replacement person cannot be found, regardless of when the cancellation is made. Pre-booked activity costs will be charged if cancellation occurs.

Please note, you will be charged an administration fee for:

  • Organising home pickups
  • Late registrations
  • Participant requested changes made after confirmations have been sent.
