Drop off

On arrival at the meeting place, you will be greeted by the Program Delivery Team and introduced to your Program Leader who will support you throughout the day. You will also meet your fellow participants who will be sharing in the day’s adventure with you.

However, we do request that you register your loved one as soon as possible. We will do our best to accommodate any late applications, however we can’t guarantee we will still have space if the request is too close to the activity date.

Can I bring my own support worker on a Cahoots activity?

Yes, although they are required to complete Cahoots staff onboarding training, provide us with their NDIS Worker Screening and Working With Children Check and agree to adhere to Cahoots policies and procedures prior to attending the service. This is because Cahoots services are in a group setting and we ensure the safety and support of all participants. The price for camps and programs will remain the same, as this is all inclusive.
