KiwiChat Camp 2018

KiwiChat Camp is for school aged students, their families and/or support people. It is aimed at students who use speech generating communication devices as their main method of communication. The primary goal of the KiwiChat Camp is for the students to improve their device use and become more competent communicators in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. The camp is designed for participation from the whole family. Separate sessions are held for parents, whānau and support people with ideas on how to support device use and other topics, whilst siblings attend a fun-filled activity program.

We plan to hold KiwiChat Camp at Totara Springs near Matamata; the same location as our previous very successful camps in 2010, 2011, 2014 and 2016. The Camp will run from the evening of Wednesday 25 April to the afternoon of Sunday 29 April 2018.

If you are interested in attending KiwiChat Camp, please fill in the expression of interest form below by 7 July 2017.  Please also feel free to discuss this with your TalkLink therapist, email  or phone Ann Smaill on 0275585018, or (09) 557 1201. We anticipate there will be a huge response and while we would love to take every family to Camp, due to resourcing, staffing and facility limitations, filling in this form will not guarantee you a place at Camp. Those who have attended KiwiChat Camp previously are welcome to apply, however preference for attending will be given to those who have not attended before. After reviewing all the completed application forms, we will contact you in due course with further information.
