About the Holiday Camps

Holiday Camp About

The Don Bosco Holiday Camps have been running at Safety Beach for over 70 years. The holiday camps are conducted for young people age 9-16 years during the summer, winter and Easter school holidays.

The camps are split into Junior (9-13 year olds) and Senior camps (13-16 year olds). An average camp will have 50-60 campers led by 20-25 volunteer youth leaders and assisted by camp staff.

The 4-5 day camps consist of a wide range of introductory, teambuilding activities to ensure that every camper feels welcomed and included. All activities are invented, planned and facilitated by the volunteer leaders to provide the campers the traditional, authentic camp experience away from life’s everyday distractions.

In the words of the campers...

'Don Bosco Camp is home to some of the best memories that I have ever made. There is never a dull day at Don Bosco, the atmosphere there is so lively and fun with the amazing leaders who are so caring and full of character. The days are full of exciting and fun activities where we can all get involved and meet heaps of new people. I am so privileged to have experienced the extraordinary sense of community at Don Bosco where I have built many lifelong friendships.'
