About Camp Jimbelung

Camp Jimbelung is a 3 day therapeutic day camp led by Occupational and Speech Therapists for children aged 5-12.  The aim of the camp is to provide children with a typical camp experience using activities such as rock-climbing, creek exploring, low ropes courses, scavenger hunts, life on the farm  and abseiling while providing extra support to work on areas of challenge such as:

  • social interactions
  • managing emotions
  • whole body coordination

Specific camp programs have been developed for ages 5-6 years, 7-8 years and 9-12 years, making sure that experiences, activities, learning and reflection frameworks are optimised for age and developmental stages.

5-6 year olds attend from 9:30am to 2:30pm

6-7 year olds attend from 9:15am – 2:45pm

7-8 year olds attend from 9:00am to 3pm

9-12 year olds attend from 9am to 3:30pm
