Affirming Kids

Our amazing children are the reason we run camps!

Each of our programs is individually tailored to ensure that each child on camp feels safe, cared for, supported and most of all, happy!

Our unique 1:1 ratio of children to volunteers allows our leaders to provide intensive support, genuine friendship and a whole lot of fun to each child on camp.

Edmund Rice Community Services is an Australian national not-for-profit organisation that supports children, young people and families experiencing significant and complex disadvantage and advocates for those who need a voice in the community. Eddie Rice Camps NSW programs are a variety of group-based recreational camps and activities, including week-long and weekend camps and day programs. Program outcomes are focused around a child's ability to build healthy relationships, affirm their peers, develop soft skills, and renew their confidence and self-worth.

Our camps are led by amazing older teen and young adult volunteer camp leaders (17-25 years) who plan and deliver an empowering experience in a safe, fun and supportive environment. Our 1:1 ratio of children to leaders enables us to provide intensive support and enrichment for all of our participants – each with their own abilities, needs and circumstances.
