Guiding children’s growth through experiences that children love

At Camp Australia, children are at the heart of everything we do. We employ the best educators to deliver enriching experiences to children before school, after school and in their holidays. This is our way of supporting families in achieving their dreams.

Guiding children’s growth through experiences that children love

The most engaged educators in OSHC

At the heart of Camp Australia are our industry-leading teams to guide, engage and care for your child.

Supported by a national team of specialists, our engaged educators foster a safe, inclusive environment where children can learn, have fun and connect – before school, after school and on their holidays. Complemented by our industry-leading training and service methodology, our educators are encouraged to bring each of their own skillsets and passions into their services to provide an enriching and tailored experience.

Our educators are also qualified in line with the National Quality Framework and industry regulations.

Enriching and Tailored Programs

Every experience with Camp Australia is tailored to the unique children in our service. Underpinning these activities is Camp Australia’s approach – The CA Way. Supported by frameworks such as My Time Our Place and The National Quality Standards, the CA Way is a structured approach to bringing programs to life in a way that results in positive child experiences and learning outcomes.

Enriching and Tailored Programs

Easy, hassle-free care

Camp Australia’s flexibility provides families with care, how and when you need it. Your OSHC Before School Care starts early in the morning, and After School Care goes into the evening and our Rocketeers school holiday programs run all day – so you can work around your life schedule.

Our industry leading online Parent Portal, also available as a smartphone app gives you unfettered access and control over your account and bookings, and (soon) daily imagery of your child in the service and real time pick up and drop off confirmations in and out of care.

Easy, hassle-free care
  • Growing is a journey, not a destination

  • From humble beginnings in 1987, providing tennis coaching after school, we recognised the need for families to have full-service care – a guilt-free place where their children could continue their learning journey, socialise with friends and play.

  • In 1991 we launched our first school holiday program in Victoria, offering full day programs dedicated to fun. The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive, and with changing family dynamics, we became the first Outside School Hours Care provider to offer Before and After School Care for primary school aged children in 1994.

  • Over the course of the next decade, we expanded our services to provide enrichment and care to children across Australia. As the recognised leader in Outside School Hours Care, we supported the Australian Government with the introduction and delivery of the National Quality Framework.

  • With a continuous objective of improving the family experience, we launched our state-of-the-art Parent Portal in 2015, which gave families freedom and control over their Camp Australia accounts.

  • Our CEO was appointed in July 2019 along with a new, revitalised and experienced management team. A new and clear strategy was outlined with the aspirational vision of supporting families in achieving their dreams through a mission to be the leading provider.

  • Today, we have some of the strongest policies, processes and internal quality auditing in the sector. We have dedicated independent compliance, quality assurance and training teams to constantly audit and embed best practice in our services.
