Waverley College, in partnership with Edmund Rice Camps Australia, has an opportunity for students in Year 11 to volunteer for the upcoming Edmund Rice Camps taking place in the April school holidays.
Edmund Rice Camps NSW is a not-for-profit organisation that supports children, young people and families, experiencing significant and complex disadvantage. Activities centre on building relationships, affirming peers, developing soft skills, and renewing confidence and self-worth.
The camps are led by amazing young volunteers who plan and deliver an empowering experience in a safe, fun and supportive environment. With a 1:1 ratio of children to volunteers, the intensive program provides an opportunity for enrichment to participants and volunteers alike.
When Do The Camps Take Place?
There are two camps for the upcoming school holidays.
- Sunday, 10 April to Thursday, 14 April
- Tuesday, 19 April to Saturday, 23 April
These programs fit either side of Easter, with the first week finishing on a Thursday, and the second beginning on the Tuesday after the Easter weekend.
What Do Students Need To Do, If They Wish To Volunteer?
To volunteer, students will need to attend a new volunteer training course on Saturday, 19 March, and must complete a new volunteer application form and a camp application form.
