WHAT IS OUR KIDNEY CAPERS ALL ABOUT?

Kidney Kids Capers is a multi-day activity program held each year in five capital cities around Australia. 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 the perfect environment for parents of kidney kids to get together and develop similar relationships at our ‘Family Fun Days’. First held in 2002, Kidney Capers now attracts around 70 enjoying it in each state.
