The Children’s Holiday Camp Program is a unique respite program that sees high school and university students take on the responsibility for the care of children with disability, allowing their families to have a valuable weekend off.
The program began in 1998 with one camp in one Sydney school. Since then, it has expanded to 30 camps in over 50 schools and universities. In 2021, more than 400* children with disability had the opportunity to attend a Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp, supported by over 770 high school and university student carers. The student carers are supported by volunteer medical staff and teachers.
Sony Foundation is committed to expanding the camps further to enable more young people to participate in this life-changing program. Sony Foundation relies on donations and corporate partnerships to fund Sony Foundation Camps. For more information on how to become a Corporate Partner, click here.
