Camp 'Reset'

"Healing through Connection"

Camp 'Reset' provides specialised services for children who present with childhood trauma as well as for their parents/carers. 

Childhood trauma is one of the nation’s most impactful public health concerns with adverse childhood experiences being one of the strongest predictors for difficulties in life. Trauma can occur from an event and or experiences and it impacts not only the mind but the body (how it processes, responds & feels). 

To ‘Reset’ we need to support a child’s body & mind to feel safe, secure and grounded; providing a platform to access skills of daily life and respond to tasks & interaction with organisation. Unlock a child’s true unique selves so they can share their amazing abilities; building confidence & empowering success in life.

This camp was specifically designed by specialist OT, Kaya Lyons, integrating nature & nurture. Kaya has over 16 years of specialist paediatric experience, written chapters in books and presents and mentors around the globe in relation to trauma-responsive therapy.

The aim of Camp Reset is to re-orientate each individuals nervous system to a platform of safety & security. Through playful interactions, movement in nature, creative exploration, nutritious food, & space being held each individual has the opportunity for integration of body, mind & spirit. The outcome is that each individual being able to access their social engagement system to interact as their true unique selves. As a result individuals often demonstrate improved executive functions, independence in daily performance, reciprocal social connection & more fluent emotional regulation & movement. 

Children will explore nature, engage in sensory integration activities, practice mindfulness, ground the body & get active, & participate in back to basic tasks of living together as a peer group, in an off grid location (no devices).

If you are looking to support through sponsorship get in touch. There are still so many children who are not receiving the support they deserve because of gaps in our health system.  By sponsoring Camp 'Reset' you can send a child to camp and support them with working through childhood trauma.
