What is Capers?
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.
The Kidney Kids Capers program also 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, this program now attracts around 70 participants in each state.
How do I sign up?
