THE PLAY PROJECT FAMILY RETREATS
Join us for a five day family retreat at the base of Mount Hotham. We promote wellness from the inside out by providing a nourishing environment surrounded by nature. Parents can take the time each day to revive themselves with peace of mind that their children are having a fun and therapeutic experience becoming the best version of themselves. Our nature based program and whole foods menu provides the foundation for developing healthy habits and supporting children to reach their potential. In the evenings we come together for structured play, family meal times and a campfire singalong

Our retreats are great for children of all ages and abilities (including those with special needs). Our groups sizes are small which allows us to tailor the experience to the individual needs of the child.
Our retreats mix outdoor nature play with adventure and more structured activities to support holistic development while nurturing the health and wellbeing of the individual.
Our experienced team of Occupational Therapists and Outdoor Education Teachers are experts in child development and have tailored the retreat program to ensure it provides an intensive therapeutic experience in a fun and play based setting.
Key skills developed during the camp include:
- Motor Skills
- Self regulation (managing emotions)
- Social skill development
- Independent living skills
Our sensory based approach to play allows us to incorporate proven therapeutic strategies with developmentally appropriate play to ensure each child reaches their full physical, social and emotional potential.
This makes the retreats a great option for families seeking an intensive therapy experience for children with additional needs or an alternative to traditional respite services. A great option for NDIS funded families looking for a structured holiday that provides respite for parents along with therapeutic, fun, play based activities for children. Siblings Welcome.
