About the Don Bosco Camp

About Us Photo

Don Bosco Camp’s mission is, and always has been, to provide holiday camps for poor and disadvantaged young people. Being a not-for-profit organisation, the camp hires the site out during term time to finance the holiday camps for young people who would otherwise go without.

Established in 1945 as a summer holiday camp for poor young boys, the camp has grown over its 70 years to include a wide range of clients including schools, youth groups, sporting and community organisations. The inclusion of additional clientele has allowed the camp’s mission work to expand to include additional programs such as winter camps, leadership programs and Asylum Seeker holiday programs.

In the words of the campers...

'Suzie the cook was such a bright character, not to mention the impeccable food she served'
