MACSAT - Barwon

MACSAT recreation program promotes inclusion for tweens and teens by providing the opportunity to visit local attractions and participate in fun activities in a group setting.

Is your child sick of sitting around at home on Saturdays?
Do they want to make new friends and hang out with people their own age?
Do they like experiencing new and exciting things?
Are they between 8-12 years old (tweens) or 13-17 years old (teens)?

What we can offer:

MACSAT runs on a Saturday for approximately 4-6 hours.

MACSAT recognises that all participants have individual goals and support needs. Our recreational facilitators assist participants to access community, recreational and social activities and develop their ability to engage in group based activities whilst strengthening their social supports.
