Celebrate your family and everything that makes it great by taking part in Camden Council's National Families Week program this month.

National Families Week celebrates the vital role that families play in Australia with a range of activities planned in local communities.

This year's theme is 'Stronger Families, Stronger Communities'.

Camden mayor Theresa Fedeli said the program allowed local families to spend quality time together in the local community.

"Family is one of the most important influences in a child's life, allowing people to feel secure with each other," Cr Fedeli said.
