Uni Camp For Kids

Uni Camp for Kids


For 85 years, Uni Camp For Kids has provided a dependable annual calendar of positive experiences for the most socially, emotionally, and/or financially disadvantaged children of Perth. Our mission is to impact the long-term mindset of seriously at-risk children by offering two key elements for a healthy childhood: rewarding childhood experiences, and exposure to positive personal relationships, role models and social interactions.

What we do:

With support from our generous network of donors, we work to improve the overall wellbeing of these at-risk children. We provide 3 annual week-long Summer camps and 4 day-long picnics during the year for over 1,000 children. We cater for children aged 5-12 and form familial-like relationships with each child throughout their primary school years. This fosters a warm, familiar environment that children in out-of-home care are often deprived of. Our Picnics and Camps serve as much-needed distractions from their difficult circumstances and provide respite to families and carers.

How you can help:

We are very proud to continue operating at no cost to the families involved. Whilst all the money we fundraise goes directly to supporting our charity, this only funds part of our work and these costs continue to increase. The cost of camp accommodation, transportation and food in particular present a huge challenge for us.

  • $50: pays for 3 children to attend a Uni Camp for Kids Picnic
  • $100: pays for 1 child’s entrance into all venues on a week-long camp
  • $500: pays for an outrageously large bouncy castle at a picnic or camp
  • $2000: pays for all 250+ children to enter a pool venue on camp or picnic 

If you would prefer to directly contribute to a specific part of our programs or events instead, please feel free to contact me via email at and we would be more than happy to discuss this further.


Thank you so much for your support, we truly appreciate your generosity. It goes a long way in making sure that Uni Camp for Kids continues to put smiles on the faces of hundreds of children from all over Perth.
