About Us

Camp Autism WA

About Us, Camp Autism WA is a not for profit organisation, with all funds raised being directed back to benefit our members.

We provide the opportunity for families with a child or children on the Autism Spectrum to attend weekend camps and day events in a non judgmental environment and can be attended and enjoyed by all members of the family.

Activities organised are to encourage social interaction, exploration of the senses and to learn new skills all whilst having fun. More importantly, you are able to connect with other families in a similar situation.

Since becoming incorporated in July 2012, Camp Autism WA has gone from strength to strength. The rapid increase of fundraising has allowed us to create the day events such as; Christmas Party, Easter Party, Parents event and school holiday catch ups.


There are no fees to become members. Membership is valid until you opt out. All people over 18 can become members in their own rights.

What do my family and I get by becoming members?
Camp Autism provides most of the activities on camp at no cost to you.  In most cases the accommodation that we have sourced is discounted.  We hold events that you, as a member, will be invited to, including our Christmas Party, Dad's event, Mum's events and other gatherings throughout the year.


Camp dates and destinations are released a few months prior to the Camps. To nominate to attend camps, complete the form for each camp on our website.

Working with Children Check.

The Working with Children Check may be required for some volunteers attending the camp. Those who are required to apply for the WWC Check due to their role at the camp, will be prompted to do so by a board member.

Who can go on a camp?

Any families or individuals who have a membership, support workers are also permitted for support with registration for camps. Be aware that some camps do “sell out”, so applying for a camp does not guarantee you a spot. However we quite often have a waitlist because sometimes selected participants are unable to attend.

Funding to attend camps.

Camp Autism is striving to find a way to make funding accessible to all members. Please speak to Kat Clark about funding for Camps with NDIS.


Transportation to and from camps and events are the responsibility of the member.


A deposit for each camp is required to secure your position at the camp. Please check the camp details for the deposit amount and due date. Failure to pay the deposit by the due date may result in your camp spot being cancelled and offered to any members on the waiting list. If you are applying for funding, you must ensure you notify the President by the due date.

How can the camp deposit be paid?

Direct Deposit

What do I take on camp and are meals provided?

Every camp is different. We provide many meals for some camps and very few meals for others. It is very much dependent on the size and location of the camp. And similarly different items need to be packed for different camps. We issue ALL camp goers with a camp itinerary giving details of included meals, activities and suggestions on what to bring, approx. 1 to 2 weeks prior to all camps.


How do I volunteer to help Camp Austism WA?

There are numerous ways in which any member can help. We are always looking for volunteers to help out at fundraising events e.g. Quiz Night, Run for a Reason etc

If you are unable to help out fundraisers, then just attending events is also helping, A strong member presence is great for creating awareness of our organisation.

We also need helpers at camps. Sometimes just someone to flip burgers, other times it may be to supervise a group of children doing a craft activity. If you are at a camp and want to help, make yourself known to those board members who are attending the camp.

At this point in time, Camp Autism WA is unable to accept any volunteering assistance from non members at camps.
