Make friends, have fun!

Get involved in Flying Fox programs to enjoy awesome experiences, meet new people and have a heap of fun!

Flying Fox is a social network that builds connections between young people with and without disability. We believe that each and every individual should belong and should be afforded the opportunity to participate as equal members of the community.

We do this by providing person-centered, individualised care for every participant on our programs, and facilitating these awesome programs for people with a wide range of personalities and interests. We also strive to facilitate experiences that enable our participants’ growth in confidence and independence over their Flying Fox journey. 

How To Get Involved

Reach out to Flying Fox

First, we’ll spend some quality time getting to know you.

Click the “Expression of Interest” to book in a video call with a friendly member of the Flying Fox team. You’ll also be directed to an Expression of Interest form to complete. 

We'll find the best program for you

We’ll make sure you’re ready for our incredible experiences!

First, we’ll have a home visit to meet you and get to know you more. Then, we’ll ensure you’re allocated to a camp where you’ll be safe, happy & healthy. In the lead up to camp, there’ll be a Camper-Buddy Catch-Up where you’ll meet your Buddies (volunteers) & team leader to get you excited and ready for camp!

Let's have fun,
it's camp time!

Spend a few days engaging in awesome activities with friends!

On camp you’ll have your two incredible Buddies (volunteers) to hang out with  and support you, along with your team of new friends, team leaders and medics. (Scroll down for a sneak peek of camp!)

You're part of our community

Join other programs to continue to make friends & have fun.

Once you’ve been on our camp, you’ll only want more! You’ll now have access to our other programs. These options include; weekly social activities, more and more getaways, as well as support from our wider community.

Who is eligible to come on a Flying Fox program?
Anyone and everyone! Flying Fox offers individualised processes to ensure that we can support everyone on our programs!
If you’re aged between 8-26 and you’re keen to join a Flying Fox program, please get in touch! If you don’t meet this age bracket, and are keen to get involved, please still get in touch. We always have opportunities that you could get involved in.
Flying Fox strives to facilitate experiences for people with disability that fosters their growth, confidence and independence over time and upholds principles of dignity and respect for everyone involved.
Why do I need to book in a call before signing up?

It’s really important to us that you have the best time ever! The initial call allow us to get to know you better and find the right program for you. 

Is there a limit to the amount of programs I can come on per year?
We aim to provide each participant with one camp and two weekend getaways per year. We will do our best to accomodate for everyone’s desirable programs!
I'm a bit nervous, how do I know when I'm ready to come on camp?

The truth is, you may never feel ‘ready’ because it can be a very daunting thing – at first!


However, we’re with you every step of the way and will work tirelessly to make sure you feel comfortable and confident going on your first program. 


This is part of the reason for both the home visit and Camper-Buddy catch up prior to your first camp. This will allow you to get to know some of the people who you’ll be on camp with, and hopefully make you feel more excited for camp! 

Can I bring a support worker on camp with me?

We work really hard with you and your family to ensure that we set you up with the right Buddies who will support all of your needs. 

We can also work with you, your family and your support worker to ensure we know all that we need to in order to keep you feeling safe, happy and healthy. 

How much does it cost?

You can find more information on pricing in our Welcome Handbook here!

What if I don't have enough funding to be able to come on a Flying Fox program?

We would never want someone to miss out due to financial reasons. If the cost is prohibitive, please get in touch with us and we will put you in touch with our finance team who will do their best to help.
