Urban Camp

Urban Camp is a week-long adventure based at Urban Camp headquarters in Parkville on the outskirts of the CBD.

Tailored specifically for our 8 – 12-year-old members, kids are treated to a four-day action packed schedule that includes visits to the Werribee Zoo, the movies, indoor rock climbing and trampolining, a boat cruise on the Yarra and much, much more!

Urban Camp allows kids, who are going through cancer treatment, or who are recovering from treatment, to enjoy being kids. Everyone has the opportunity to develop their confidence and independence, to experience new things and the chance to meet others their own age that might be in a similar situation to them.

Just as important are the brothers and sisters, with many attending Urban Camp, allowing them to meet other siblings and to experience a positive side to their brother or sister’s cancer journey.

Urban Camp takes place during the September School Holidays each year.

Due to overwhelming demand, please note that preference may be given to children living in country and regional areas who rarely have the chance to visit Melbourne.
