Story

Camp Breakaway (known as Breakaway) was established in 1982 as a registered non-profit charitable organisation and is a registered service provider for National Disability Insurance Scheme and a member of National Disability Services.

Breakaway is committed to enhancing the lives of all people with disabilities, at the same time allowing relief for families and carers.

Our aim is to care for the whole family, recognising that parents and siblings need to have support and respite too.

Breakaway respite camps (more like a holiday) provide friendship, fun, laughter, games, rest, and relaxation for children and adults with disabilities, children with high medical needs and their families.

Breakaway also provides specialist camps for children with autism, rare disorders, Smith Magenis Syndrome and young people with disabilities.

Due to Breakaway's 35 years of experience and facilities, Breakaway can cater for adults and children with severe and multiple disabilities and the aged and frail.

Breakaway is located on 11 hectares in San Remo. A wonderful semi-rural site surrounded by native bushland. Facilities include accommodation for 96 people, playground suitable for children with a disability, jumping pillow, tennis court, putt-putt. Lodges suitable for activities and seminars, commercial kitchen, catering. Respite camps include accommodation, meals and activity programs. Camps range from one day to seven days.

Our camps are supported by staff experienced in disability, high medical needs and aged cared. Volunteers provide companionship care for our guests.

The Breakaway site is available for hire by community groups and the general public. An ideal place for a seminar, family gathering, or holiday. The profits from site-hire go towards Breakaway providing respite programs for the community.
