Our Purpose

Our purpose at Cahoots (formerly Kid's Camps) is to create inclusive opportunities for children and young people living with disability and others that face exceptional challenges to develop friendships, skills and confidence.

We believe that everyone, of all abilities, should be able to have fun, make friends, and take part in the local communityWe provide inclusive opportunities for young west Aussies living with disabilities, from age 5 through to adulthood 

Through overnight camps, community participation, and capacity-building activities, we support our participants to grow their independence and develop relationships and social skills while having a whole heap of fun! Our camps and day programs are tailored to our participants individual needs, offering different services based on their care requirements and age.
