Week-long Programs

Week-long Residential Programs

Our week-long camps programs combine 20-30 children experiencing marginalisation with 20-30 young volunteer leaders for a week of recreation, games and activities that will encourage all to get involved. Through positive interactions with our passionate leaders, children are able to forget pressures and responsibilities that they may be experiencing at home, and relax and enjoy a week of fun, where great friendships will be formed.

  • 5 days and 4 nights 
  • 1:1 ratio of children to leaders
  • All meals, accommodation and activity costs included
  • Staff and trained volunteers present at all times

Camps run EVERY school holiday period at the Edmund Rice Retreat and Conference Centre in Mulgoa NSW, and referrals for children will open up approximately 2 months prior to each camp season.

Upcoming Programs:
