BaseCamp® – Term Program – Wollongong

Basecamp anxiety program for children 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, BaseCamp® draws on decades of experience, combining a sound theoretical cognitive-behavioural approach with effective, engaging and child-centred activities. 

BaseCamp® is based in a fictional Australian National Park. Children are invited on a journey to 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 participants with a concise and engaging set of materials to help them build a repertoire of anxiety management skills and to support the development of essential social and emotional learning (SEL) skills for children aged 7 to 12 years.

The Program covers:

  • Understanding Worry, Anxiety, and its components.
  • Practice cognitive restricting techniques to develop more realistic and helpful ways of thinking about the situations and events that make them anxious.
  • Implement guided graded exposure exercises to develop coping strategies and to develop more realistic views about overcoming worries.
  • Practice relaxation technics to reduce overall arousal levels and physiological tension typically associated with anxiety.
  • Learn relapse prevention techniques to consolidate on anxiety-management techniques and learn how to generate an action plan when difficulties are confronted.
