We feel that Basecamp® is an incredible artwork. Every page was carefully designed to communicate with our users in a unique and interesting way. Navigating through the 182 pages of Basecamp is an adventure full of surprises.
BaseCamp® is an innovative anxiety program for children aged 7 to 12 years. Developed by 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 and resource were also shortlisted for two international awards at the London Book Fair International Excellence Awards 2018.
