Who is Autism Camp Australia?
Autism Camp Australia (ACA) is a registered Australian charity whose mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of Autistic young people and their families.
We create safe supported spaces where the Autistic community can connect, celebrate their identity and enrich their lives. We aim to enhance life skills through neurodiversity affirming and relationship-based practices, therapies and education focused on supporting health and wellbeing. Autism Camp Australia’s unique, evidence and lived-experience based approach is implemented by a diverse, outcomes-focused team and our neurodiversity manifesto sets a gold standard for inclusion in the workplace, with Autistic and neurodivergent people leading the way at every level of our organisation.
Our commitment to embracing neurodivergence is in everything that we do. We are Autistic-led – we pride ourselves on having significant neurodivergent representation at every level of the organisation, are informed by lived experience and engage in positive lived-experience role modelling. We listen, engage and uplift Autistic voices, constantly evaluating and improving to be the best we can be for all Autistic and neurodivergent people. We support, listen to and learn from both individuals representing the global Autism voice, and individuals from marginalised and under-represented intersectional groups within our Autistic community.
Our vision is self-reliance, independence, social connection and community inclusion for Autistic young people and their families.
