BaseCamp® anxiety program by Quirky Kid

BaseCamp® is an innovative anxiety program for children aged 7 to 12 years. Developed by Clinical Psychologist, Dr Kathryn Berry, and the Quirky Kid team, draws on decades of experience, combining a sound theoretical cognitive-behavioral approach with effective, engaging and child-centred activities. 

About Our Anxiety Program for Kids: BaseCamp®

Based in a fictional Australian National Park, Basecamp® takes children on a journey where they explore themed settings, team up with a support crew of experienced guides and interact with park animals, all intended to help them tackle the challenges of managing and overcoming anxiety.

The program provides parents, participants, and facilitators with a concise and engaging set of materials to help children and their families build a repertoire of anxiety management skills and to support the development of essential social and emotional learning (SEL) skills.

BaseCamp® comes with a range of resources to make it easy for facilitators to deliver the program. All participants receive the Basecamp® pack. The pack contains a workbook which includes  a range of psycho-educational resources to share the science behind behaviour with participants; direct instructional anxiety management techniques (including Cognitive Restructuring, Graded Exposure and Problem Solving); and activities designed to sustain and maintain treatment gains (eg. fieldwork tasks, performance feedback, rewards, home notes, etc.).

The BaseCamp® program, including all the activities and information, is sequenced, explicit, focused and both evidence-informed and aligned to various elements of the Australian Curriculum’s social and personal capabilities. The result is a practical and efficient anxiety management resource that is beautiful to look at, highly engaging and easy to use.

New 'Face It' Cards - A social and Emotional Communication Tool.

At long last! Our new and improved Face It! Cards have arrived at QK headquarters ready to inspire and delight children and adults once again. We felt it was time to refresh the look of these much loved hand-drawn expression cards designed to engage young people from diverse social and cultural backgrounds as well as those on the Autism spectrum or with other special needs.

The new edition features a fresh, crisp new box for storage and transport and special printing embellishments throughout. We love it.

These cards have been widely used across Australia and beyond to help families resolve conflict and classmates explore social scenarios or ethical dilemmas. Whether in the classroom, clinic or at home, the Face It! Cards have the capacity to overcome barriers and invite conversation about expressions and feelings no matter what age or environment.

This resource has such a diverse range of uses making it not only popular as a resource for the clinic and classroom setting, but a beautiful gift for any young person looking to improve their ability to connect with people through the understanding of expressions and body language.

The Face It Cards have sold over 1500 copies and is used by organisations worldwide. Here’s a lovely review the cards received recently by our friends at the University of Arkansas.
