Camp changed young Aaron’s life…
My name is Aaron. My first DSR Kids camp was when I was 10. I was scared.
But, I loved camp! I loved going on the sit ski and going fast.
I’m now 16 and I tell the scared little ones that it’s going to be alright, that they won’t be lonely and they’ll make heaps of friends.
I think everyone should go on camp. It is so much fun, I want to share it with people.”
Aaron learned valuable life skills on our camp that will help him become an independent adult. He wants to share that experience.
We need generous people like you to keep this camp running, so children like Aaron and his friends, have a chance to learn and grow through active play.

Our volunteers are important members of our team. When you generously give up some of your time, you are making a real difference to others.
There are many ways you can get involved, from helping with administration, fundraising, communications and social media, to volunteering at events and on our camps.
We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic people to join our team and we encourage people with disability to get in touch.
Interested in volunteering?
We will assess whether you are suitable for a volunteer role within our organisation. If you are not suitable, we will contact you to explain the reasons why. If you are suitable, we will contact you to arrange an interview (this could be via phone or video) to talk about your previous experience, training, interests and skills that may help when volunteering with us. We’ll also ask you what goals and outcomes you want to achieve through volunteering with us.
We will invite you to become a member of our ‘DSR Vollies’ Facebook page. This is where we post any upcoming volunteer opportunities – both short term and long term. We encourage you to express your interest in anything that you think is suitable.
If you are assigned a volunteer role, we will invite you to a volunteer induction session. This could be a group session, or one-on-one.
We will confirm your volunteer involvement with us once we receive your Working With Children’s Check and Police Check.
Not sure if volunteering is right for you? Have questions? Email us.
We also offer work experience placements for junior members.
Each year we receive many enquiries from students who would like to do work experience with us, however we often aren’t able to accommodate the requests we receive.
We will always try our best to make an exception for our junior members with disability.
If you are a junior member with disability and looking for a work experience placement, the first step is to fill out our online application form.
You can ask your parent, teacher or support worker to help you fill out the form.
We also accept applications for university placements.
Please speak to your supervisor and contact us directly if you wish to work on a longer term project with us as part of your university degree.
