Tasmania Programs

At Edmund Rice Community Services Tasmania, our programs primarily cater to children aged 8 to 12 years (Grades 3-6) from diverse backgrounds and locations across Tasmania. We warmly welcome everyone and typically pair participants with a volunteer mentor for the duration of the program.

Our volunteer mentors, aged 16 to 23, hail from all over Tasmania. This pairing fosters connections and positive interactions, nurturing friendships and trust. Participants and volunteers leave our programs feeling empowered and enriched, having learned more about themselves, others, and life. Through a variety of activities, camp participants build relationships, understand each other better, and stand in solidarity.
