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 Camps NSW

Edmund Rice Camps NSW is a community based not-for-profit organisation, providing recreational holiday getaways for disadvantaged children aged between 5 and 15 years who would otherwise not be able to enjoy such an experience.


We respond to the needs of children and families experiencing poverty, marginalisation and social isolation in the Sydney and wider area by promoting sustainable, grass roots change and development in communities. By encouraging and supporting the children on our camps, we enhance resilience, promote self esteem and encourage a sense of purpose and personal achievement, enabling kids to pull themselves out of entrenched disadvantage.

Our organisation depends on the generosity of the amazing young leaders who donate their time and talents to mentor and inspire children on camp, whilst improving their own understanding of social justice and connecting with local families facing adversity in their own backyard. In return, volunteers receive extensive training and support, a variety of formation and exchange opportunities across Australia and the world, and the chance to discover their personal ability to enact societal change!
