Better Buddies and Camp Australia

For more than 27 years Camp Australia has delivered high quality and affordable After School Care programs that nurture and support children's development. Programs which provide time for homework, time to relax, educational activities and a healthy snack.

The success of their school partnerships has enabled their not for profit organisation, the Camp Australia Foundation, to work with charity partners (like us!) to develop local, state, national and international projects to improve the lives of primary school children.

We are now in our second year of working together, to enable children in a range of partner schools enjoy Better Buddies activities in their After School Care programs. These interactive programs are designed to complement the Better Buddies Framework and aim to help children feel welcome and connect with each other.

Our Leadership Program also provides opportunities for children to take on roles of responsibility and build self-confidence. Leaders are presented with Better Buddies Leader Badges and certificates to recognise their role.

Students are also creating their own 2015 friendship banners. As new children join throughout the year they will add their handprints or footprints to the banner.
