About Camp KickStart

Camp KickStart is a school holiday care program for vulnerable and disadvantaged children aged five to thirteen who don’t look forward to the holidays like their peers do as they are experiencing hardship.

We provide kids with transport to and from home and excursions, with food, books, clothes and fun things to do, and partner them with mentors for extra support and self-esteem building.

Over 350 kids attend our school holiday care program across five South Australian locations.

Activities can include:

• Celebrity visitors, including AFL footballers.
• Excursions to swimming centres, movies, zoo, beach, museum and adventure playgrounds.
• Playing football and other group sports.
• Group games, mini Olympics and obstacles courses.
• Bouncy castles and water slides.
• Cooking classes.
• Arts and crafts.
• Learning to ride bikes.
• Making cardboard cars with our resident engineering volunteers.
• Making healthy snacks with our resident nutritionist.
• Numeracy and literacy programs.
