Cahoots operates with a much higher than required ratio of care, balancing our staff with qualified volunteers, to provide the extra support and help, which makes Cahoots camps and programs so safe, fun and special for everyone involved!
Cahoots’ prices include planning and coordination, all activities, service delivery team members, accommodation, catering, transport and all equipment needed. All activities are run by qualified facilitators and support staff to ensure that Cahoots participants and volunteers have a safe, enjoyable experience with opportunities to connect, learn and celebrate together.
Cahoots has increased the quality and safeguarding of our camps by increasing paid facilitators and support. This will help ensure that everyone in Cahoots care is given personal and memorable experiences, abundant opportunities to connect, learn and celebrate together. Price increases may prompt a review of existing service agreements to ensure there is sufficient funding allocated for Cahoots services. Our Family Relationships Officers can assist you with this and any other questions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org
Cahoots will communicate price increases as soon as possible and with a clear effective date. Any activities undertaken after this date will be charged at the new rates as indicated in customer service agreements.

Teens camps cost more than kids camps as the particpants needs can become more diverse as they develop into teenagers, we provide further training to our staff to cater for these needs. This is required to ensure our high safety and quality standards. Also, activities and catering for teens are generally more expensive than kids, which is included in Cahoots prices.
This is due to the claims process within the NDIS portal. It may causes a difference of a few cents. All prices listed on our website are the maximum rate, you will not be charged over this amount.
Weekend rates are higher in SCHADS award (rates we pay staff) and also for accommodation and activities. This rate is all inclusive of all these expenses and is still well within the NDIS total limit.
Discounted rates are approximately 30% (discounted by 70% from full fees). Cahoots is a mission driven charity, which aims to support many Western Australia families who face exceptional challenges by offering a low cost sponsorship rate.
