Well! Make sure you bring an expectation to be loved and cared for whilst having the time of your life! There are activities for all ages and we hold our retreats at Seaworld Resort, what more could you ask for! The CCA Family Retreat runs for 3 days/2nights and offers you an opportunity to make some amazing life-long memories for you and your family/participant.
The idea is that the Carer and the participant and their own support worker join us for 2 1/2 days at Seaworld. Download an example itinerary below.
The participant can either choose STA or support hours during the day so the Carer can have a break and the participant is able to experience the wonders and joys of their environment whilst learning valuable skills to participate in their community.
There is an out of pocket expense $550 (this is for the accommodation and food for the Carer and Participant as we can't take this out of the NDIS plan.
We do have AfterPay and Zip pay for anybody that requires it.
Activities will include entry to Seaworld Theme Park, a Seaworld Dinner Cruise, craft & mindfulness activities for Carers, psychologist sessions for both Carers & NDIS Participants, scavenger hunt for Carers and a party for the participants at the last lunch.

"We felt loved and supported from the second we greeted the CCA Staff, their support was unwavering the whole time of the retreat. It was nice to speak to others who had the same experiences as I with being a carer but also to be given space to chat about how we truly are doing and how we can look after ourselves better to do a better job as carers. I feel fortunate to be able to attend and blessed to have made friends along the way" Lana
"Thank you so much to the team at CCA for putting on such an amazing retreat for us. As a Carer it was nice to be looked after so well adn the itinerary was a great balance of activities, therapy and fun. Thank you for making us all feel so special and spoiling the children with TLC, fun experiences and treats!"
"Once again delivered a wonderful time away. Your effort and enthusiasm is infectious - thank you very much to you and your team. Allie, Donna and Bec you are the best!"
