Johnny H Adventures

Johnny H Adventures is our flagship program offering social activities, day trips, short trips and even global travel for late teens and adults in the Nepean & Blue Mountains region.

Each activity creates opportunities to socialise, enjoy new experiences, learn new skills and build independence in a safe, supporting environment.

NDIS funding can be used to cover the cost of supports, with a component paid by the participant to cover any additional non-support costs.

Social Activities

Johnny H Adventures offers weekly opportunities for participants to socialise within a small group. These activities are offered from our central hub, Johnny’s Place, and within the local community, such as mini golf, bowling and aqua golf. Social activities introduce and encourage participants to engage with their peers and build firm friendships.

Day Adventures

Day adventures involve travelling a short distance to visit destinations in and around Sydney. Our day trips tend to be activity or attraction focussed, including horse riding, the zoo, a day at the beach or amusement park. Participants have the opportunity to enjoy new experiences, visit new places and develop skills within a social group. These active adventures run for 7-9 hours, allowing for a full day out and about with friends old and new.

Overnight Adventures

Overnight adventures are an ideal opportunity for participants to experience a short time away from family. Participants travel by bus from our central hub to destinations within a few hours, including Canberra, Wollongong, Bathurst, Dubbo and Newcastle. Travelling within a small group, participants see new sights, take part in activities, stay in accommodation and eat out at a local restaurant. All of these experiences help to build capacity and confidence.

Short Adventures

Ranging from 3, 4 or 5 nights away, our short adventures are designed to develop independent living skills and offer families a short break. As well as seeing new sights and taking on new experiences, participants get plenty of hands-on opportunities to build life skills such as cooking, shopping and packing. Short trip destinations have included the Gold Coast, Canberra, Mid North Coast NSW and South Coast NSW.

Global Adventures

Pre-pandemic, Johnny H has hosted overseas trips once or twice a year. Past destinations include New Zealand, Singapore, USA, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Hong Kong, and UAE. Overseas adventures are an amazing opportunity for participants to build life skills and independence. The confidence gained on these trips is life changing.

Capacity Building

Johnny H provides regular opportunities for participants to build life skills within a small group. Capacity building focus areas include money management, using public transport, helping out around the home to name but a few. These skills are invaluable for participants to increase their independence and confidence over time.
