DSSA runs 2 school holiday camps every year for students 10 years over with Down syndrome and other chromosomal disorders. These are held in the April school holidays and the September/October school holidays. 

Camps usually adopt a theme to focus on for the second day, around which the activities are structured. For example, Mexican theme, where the students enjoyed traditional food, crafts, games and dancing. These camps are an opportunity for students to make new friends and socialise with others of similar age who also have Down syndrome or other chromosomal disorders. Camps teach life skills with the practical use of the Right to Know program around friendships, sexuality and personal safety.
