Respite through Recreation

IOE runs group recreation programs which are not only fun and social for your child but also provide short term respite for all family members.

You child can use their funding to join an existing group or create their own.

Groups are all about getting involved, being active and having fun together.

To add to the enjoyment, our fun, young and passionate recreation volunteers assist the children on all camps and activities.

Some of the group programs IOE currently offers are:

  • Weekend programs – Single day fun and engaging activities and weekend camps out and about in the community.  Small groups, of either regular or casual attendees, operate for specific age groups and common participant interests.

  • School Holiday Program camps and activities run every school holiday period – fun, social, activity packed and community based.

  • Regular out-of-hours inclusive sports, music, movement, social activities and common interest groups for various ages from pre-schoolers to teenagers, plus a monthly IOE disco. All groups are based at community venues.

  • After school program – Extended hours programs running during school term.
