You can make a difference in the heart of a child

Carolyn's Legacy

On Saturday the 14th February 2015, our Founding Director, Carolyn Boyd departed this life to be with the Lord. Words fail to express our feelings of loss and grief, as Carolyn was a true servant and ongoing volunteer.  She was not only our Founding Director, she was a Writer, a Leader, a Teacher, and she was also our friend.  

It’s no exaggeration when I say that thousands of people have been touched by the life of Carolyn Boyd.  Recently, a Celebration service was held where many people gathered in Australia (and around the world via live feed), to share and remember her life.   At this service, it was very evident - Carolyn lived life to the full and shared it with everyone around her.  We feel honoured to have shared the journey with Carolyn and also humbled by her extraordinary ability to change the world for good and make a difference in the lives of so many children and adults alike.

Our journey at Southern Cross Kids’ Camps will continue on and will grow stronger as we run with the vision and mission given to Carolyn so many years ago. 

If you would like to give to the ongoing work of SCKC in the memory of Carolyn, you can do so by going to the Donate page on this website.  We would love to know if your donation is in Carolyn’s memory, so feel free to select the 'Carolyn Boyd Legacy Fund' in the drop down box.
