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 is a not-for-profit organisation that supports children, young people and families experiencing significant and complex disadvantage. We provide a variety of group-based recreational programs, including week-long and weekend camps and follow up day programs. Activities centre on building relationships, affirming peers, developing soft skills, and renewing confidence and self-worth.
Our camps are led by amazing young adult volunteers (17-25 years) who plan and deliver an empowering experience in a safe, fun and supportive environment. Our 1:1 ratio of children to volunteers enables us to provide intensive support and enrichment for all of our participants – each with their own abilities, needs and circumstances.
