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 special needs, 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 2018, more than 650 children with special needs had the opportunity to attend a Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp.
Sony Foundation is committed to expanding the camps further to enable more young people to participate in this life-changing program. It hosts fundraising events throughout the year to allow this to occur. For more information click here
