Edmund Rice Camps

Edmund Rice Camps Inc (ERC) is a Melbourne based charity that connects kids and families who are doing it tough with volunteers who want to contribute to their community.

We operate up to 12 recreation based camps for kids and families living in disadvantaged situations, staffed with a 1:1 ratio by our young (or young at heart) trained volunteers.

Our residential camps create powerful opportunities for kids to spend time with positive role models and to building self confidence. The 1:1 ratio means that every child is seen and heard, every success is celebrated and every challenge supported.

Our volunteers are inspirational. We train and support our mostly young volunteers to gain personal insights into social justice issues and to become leaders of their peers. It is their passion, energy and generosity that is the heart of our organisation.
