The children that Edmund Rice support come from many different backgrounds and situations
- Living in a foster family home or with a relative
- Living below the poverty line due to severe financial disadvantage
- Those who have a family member with a disability or mental illness
- Those from refugee and indigenous backgrounds.
For every child in care at the camps there is one leader to provide that child with a close friend, positive role model and mentor.
Edmund Rice Camps relies on the support of the community through donations, volunteers and other people who are willing to go beyond for their community.
