Australian Camp Connect Association

The Australian Camp Connect Association is ALL about Dads & Kids.

The Australian Camp Connect Association is ALL about enriching and enhancing the relationship that fathers have with their children.

We are committed to helping ensure that the relationship that fathers [or significant males] have with the children in their life is one based on engagement, active participation, fulfilment, trust, respect, love and fun.

Through the educational programs and structured weekend camps we run and the support we provide, fathers are empowered with practical and creative tools to be able to enhance their communication, interaction, teaching and play with their children at different levels and, ultimately, the relationship with their children.

We are a non profit organisation that conducts innovative programs and initiatives for dads and kids.

Australian Camp Connect Association Programs


Dads and Kids Weekend Camps. The weekend camps are the main stay program of Camp Connect. The camps, using accredited campsites run from the Friday evening to the Sunday afternoon. What make the camps that we conduct so different is that they are structured with workshops for the dads or the dads and kids together, factored into the weekend. The aim behind this initiative is that apart from wanting the dads to have had a good time away with their children, we want them to have come away with so much more. It is this reason why camp connect is more than just a fun weekend away. Our camps are run at different venues around Victoria.

Dads Workshop Days. Looking at issuses about relaionshiops, parenting, communication.

Dads Time Gatherings the opportunity for dads to get together with or without their kids to improve their social supports and networks.

Pit Stop Parenting Course For Dads - an 8 week course designed specifically for dads.

Drug Prooof Your Kids - This course will be run through Camp Connect.

Telephone & email support


As part of our harm reduction strategies we respond to both telephone and email requests for help. We often receive phone calls either from dads referred to us from other organisations, word of mouth or from our website.

We are not counsellors but are able to refer these dads, through our network of contacts onto other individuals or organisations that are be able to provide more specialist support in the area that the father or child may require. This support may be in the way of counselling, family law, child support, financial planning. We have an extensive database of specialists that we can refer dads onto if that is what they require. Sometimes all they require is someone to talk to, someone who will listen. We offer that support.

Australian Camp Connect Association website


Our website currently receives on average over 650 hits per day. Apart from advertising our upcoming programs it contains an extensive list of resources that are available for dads and kids, both locally and internationally. Individuals as well as organisations that work with dads and or children have the opportunity to promote their upcoming programs on the community calendar.
