Taz Kids Clubs and Camps
Camps and Clubs for young Tasmanians aged 7-17 who have a parent or guardian impacted by mental health issues.
When someone in the family is struggling with mental health related issues, they’re not the only ones who feel the stress. Sometimes kids need a supportive environment where they can connect with other kids in similar situations.
Taz Kids Camps run for 2 days during the school holidays.
Camps give young people an opportunity to make new friends, be part of a team, get outdoors and have fun.
Taz Kids Clubs run for 7 weeks in Primary and High Schools around Tasmania.
They are a safe environment where young people can ask questions and learn about mental health. Clubs provide a peer group for children to better support each other.
Taz Kids also offer:
- Family days to aquatic centres, water slides, bowling alleys and skate centres
- Parenting support and workshops
- Leadership opportunities for teenagers
- Promotion of positive mental health.
