Types of Programs

Out Doors’ programs range from day, overnight and 2-5 day trips focused on the specific needs of people living with a mental illness.

New Participant Information Sessions
These sessions are the first step in becoming involved with Out Doors.

New Participant Days
These programs are the next step for new participants and are designed to provide an insight into the types of activities that are available.

Day Activities
These days offer a variety of programs from leisure to more active adventure activities.

Come & Try Days
‘Come & Try Days’ are a great opportunity for participants to try new activities such as canoeing, bushwalking, mountain biking, rock climbing, etc.

Overnight Programs
These programs are a great way to get out of the city for a few days and participate in activities while enjoying the outdoors.

Sequential Programs
Sequential Programs offer participants an opportunity to develop their skills in a particular activity over a number of weeks and may include overnight camps. The model used in this program is progressive and developmental, providing opportunities for participants to challenge themselves and go beyond the boundaries imposed by their everyday lives.

Weekend programs
Our weekend programs are specifically designed for ageing carers living at home with their son or daughter with a dual disability (mental illness and intellectual disability). These programs are intended to develop participants’ independent living skills and enhance their participation in the wider community.
