Edmund Rice Camps Tasmania is a state-wide, not for profit, volunteer driven organisation that provides children, young people and young adults with experiences they may not otherwise have.
Founded on the examples of Edmund Rice, Edmund Rice programs focus on supporting marginalised and/or minority groups to participate in fun and safe environments of acceptance, challenge and growth. The participants involved in our programs are most commonly aged between 8 and 12 years (Grades 3-6) and come from a variety of different and diverse backgrounds and locations in Tasmania.
What programs do we run?
These are four day camps that take place during school holidays with leaders and participants staying together for the duration.
Funfests take place during the School holidays and are 4 days long with participants and leaders heading home at the end of each day.
Eddie Days Out / H2H
Eddie Days Out are one day programs that take place usually on a weekend. Head 2 Heart programs are an overnight program also usually on a weekend.
