Kidney Kids Capers is a multi-day activity program held in five capital cities around Australia every year. The program provides a chance for children living with chronic kidney disease and their siblings a chance to develop much needed peer-support networks.
Our Kidney Kids Capers program provides a perfect environment for parents of kidney kids to get together and develop friendships at our ‘Family Fun Days’. First held in 2002, Kidney Capers now attracts around 70 kids in each state.
