There are many fantastic ways to get involved in Edmund Rice Camps as a volunteer. Whether you are looking for work experience, completing your Duke of Ed Residential Award or a University unit, or maybe you know another Eddie Rice volunteer and you are just interested in becoming a part of our wonderful organisation for the fun and personal reward that it offers!
No matter what your interest, the process is pretty simple! We have outlined the steps below, and encourage you to sign up to our mailing list - it's where you will get all the information for upcoming training and programs.
For our wonderful Duke of Edinburgh Award Volunteers....
Please remember that we run our camps for the benefit of disadvantaged children. As much as we would like to place all our volunteer applicants on camp, we need to match your capacity to the needs of our children. This means that we can't take requests to be placed with friends and we won't confirm any placement on camp before you have completed training and we can meet you and get an idea of what you are like!
If you are concerned that you need to complete a Uni or DoE placement by a certain date, please organise a backup. And please, make sure you apply for training and camp as early as possible in your journey, as we can often place our waitlisted applicants on a program in the following camp season!
A CHILD'S WORTH
"Eddie Rice Camps have been such an awesome thing for me!
The games and activities they put on for us kids is the best fun I've ever had.
I feel so good about myself and my new friends when I get home".
