for kids impacted by abuse or neglect in Australia

Sandy & Peter Lusk

Southern Cross Kids’ Camps is an Australian Registered Charity.

We interrupt the cycle of abuse and neglect in primary aged children by providing an outstanding five day camping program.

Many of the kids who attend camp are in the foster care system and have been subjected to various forms of significant trauma.
The good news is… we are doing something about it!
With over 700 dedicated volunteers, our kids experience a week filled with fun and laughter and get to leave camp with a fresh perspective, new life skills and hope for a brighter future.
We provide a week of happy memories for the kids who need it most.

Southern Cross Kids' Camps relies on the generous donations of compassionate people.

For every $500 we raise, we can change one more child's life.
Here's how you can partner with us:

Donate what you can

Whether it's $1, $5, $100 or $500. Every single dollar counts and will ensure that we can reach as many children as possible.

Abused or neglected children go to camp

Your help will enable a child to go to camp for a week of happy memories; providing them with the means to deal with their present, and a hope for the future.

Your generosity provides a life-changing encounter

You walk away empowered by the fact that you were able to change the course of hundreds of children with an experience that will change their course - forever.
