Bushfire Relief: Free Holiday Club for eligible families during bushfire crisis
We are heartbroken to witness the impact of the devastating fires around our country on local communities.
Our thoughts are with all those affected, many of whom who have lost loved ones, homes and businesses and our thanks goes out to the thousands of volunteers and emergency services personnel who are working tirelessly to protect and support communities.
Whilst there is no way to truly compensate for this loss and no limit in our thanks to those currently fighting for our country, we want to help where we can.
Camp Australia is offering free holiday care for all Australian emergency services personnel and volunteers for the remainder of the summer school holidays.
Under this offer, all Australian emergency service personnel and volunteers can register and use a Camp Australia Holiday Club for their primary school aged children for free.
At Holiday Club, children can enjoy games, arts & crafts, sport, excursions, cooking, coding and more. Hopefully, we can help give some joy to children for what is left of the summer holidays and reduce any stress on families involved in the bushfire crisis response about childcare arrangements during this period.
This offer is available for the remainder of the summer school holidays in each state and is available across all Camp Australia Holiday Clubs around the country.
How to access the offer
Existing Camp Australia families can go to the Camp Australia Parent Portal, or call the Customer Care Team on 1300 105 343.
New families need to first register with us. Please CLICK HERE to register your child. Once registered, you can then place a booking via our parent portal.
Within the Parent Portal, families will need to indicate what emergency service or volunteer group they are part of, search for their nearest Camp Australia Holiday Club location, and book any Holiday Club session up to the end of the summer holiday period. If the selected location is unavailable, we encourage families to consider other venue options that may be available.
Camp Australia thanks everyone involved in the bushfire crisis response, and our thoughts are with all those affected.
