About This Program

Basecamp® is an innovative anxiety program that helps children aged 7 to 13 build a repertoire of anxiety-management skills. The program has won numerous local and international awards, including the Educational Initiative Award at the The London Book Fair International Excellence Awards and Best Designed Educational Resource at the 66th Australian Book Design Awards.

Basecamp® draws on decades of experience and combines a sound cognitive behavioural approach with effective and engaging child-centred activities.

What we cover

This anxiety program provides children with a concise and engaging set of materials to help them build a toolkit of anxiety-management techniques and to support the development of essential social and emotional learning (SEL) skills. Throughout the 8 weeks, participants will:

  • Understand worry, anxiety and their components
  • Develop more realistic ways of thinking about situations that make them anxious
  • Practice cognitive restructuring and gradual exposure techniques to overcome worries
  • Master relaxation techniques to reduce overall arousal levels and physical tension typically associated with anxiety
  • Learn to build relapse-prevention strategies and apply action plans when difficulties arise

Each program is evaluated to ensure it meets our strict learning outcomes. Current research with parents indicates that 73% of children were better able to manage their worries and anxiety (overall) after attending BaseCamp® (n=49).
