We provide direct support to disadvantaged children so they can attend school and gain an education.
We also provide awareness raising programs for the thousands of children who attend After School Care, to empower them to do something positive about some of the challenges faced by disadvantaged children.
Through our Payroll Giving Program, team members can also donate to charity partners through our payroll system.
The Camp Australia Foundation (tCAF) dollar matches all donations to make twice the difference to disadvantaged primary school children throughout Australia and overseas.
tCAF is our not for profit organisation. The After School Care programs Camp Australia provides enables us to work with our charity partners to develop exclusive local, state, national and international projects to improve the lives of primary school children.
tCAF then coordinates these programs enabling our whole organisation to work together and have a big impact on the children we are supporting.
By 2025 we aim to positively impact the primary education experience of 1 Million children.
We will do this by providing financial support to charity partners who share our beliefs and engage Camp Australia Team Members to provide their time and skills in achieving our mission.
Thanks to our dedicated and passionate Educators, in 2015 we positively impacted the lives of more than 50,000 primary school children and donated more than $150,000 to our charity partners.
We provide valuable support to partner schools by offering a range of high quality kids’ activities e.g. face painting, craft or sports activities at fetes or school open days and financial contributions for charities who support children in need.
Through our partnership with The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, we created our exclusive Better Buddies program to help children feel safe and connected to their service. This program provides children with leadership opportunities to develop their self esteem. In 2015, we presented more than 10,000 children with Buddy Leader Badges at celebrations in services.
We can also sponsor schools who wish to introduce a Better Buddies program.
Camp Australia is a long-time supporter of State School Relief. We provide an annual financial donation to supply students suffering financial hardship with school uniforms and shoes.
Through our partnership with Schools Connect Australia, we will provide Sports Excellence Scholarships to assist disadvantaged students compete in National Sports Championships.
One of the most effective ways of breaking the cycle of disadvantage is to support a child’s education. This is why Camp Australia raised $64,000 to support The Smith Family’s Learning for Life Program. This program helps Aussie kids in need, transform their life through education.
The Camp Australia Foundation dollar matches all donations to ensure that even the smallest contribution can make a big difference.
Through our partnership with Oxfam Australia, we created our exclusive Junior Global Citizenship Program (the first of its type in Australia).
This program encourages children to care about the planet and to develop empathy with people in other countries.
Camp Australia’s 2015 Christmas collection saw children in our services create handmade literacy and numeracy gifts for 600 orphans and vulnerable children attending an After School Care program in South Africa.
