Most children have fond memories of a school or another camp. Not to mention life lessons, tall tales, mischief, and dirty clothes. It is an experience of a lifetime. We discuss some of the camps available to children with a disability. 

 “We didn’t realise we were making memories... We just knew we were having fun!”

Edmund Rice Camps

This organisation provides holiday experiences for young people aged 7 to 16 years who would otherwise be unable to enjoy them. There is a small cost to attend the camps. Many of the participants come from marginalised or disadvantaged backgrounds. The camps also provide welcome respite for parents and families.

Edmund Rice Camps depend on the generosity of the young adult leaders who give freely of their time and talents for those in need. The leaders are attentive and model positive behaviour for the children whilst being friendly, fair and providing supportive discipline in the camp environment.

Tailoring the programs ensures that each child feels safe, cared for, supported and happy!
