Committed to impacting positively on the lives of people made poor

Edmund Rice Camps

Edmund Rice Camps (ERC) run recreational camping programs for disadvantaged youth and their families across South Africa.

The camps focus on providing an opportunity for growth, support and enjoyment within an atmosphere of acceptance, care and fun. Edmund Rice Camps are entirely volunteer lead, mentoring and working hands on participants on 1:1 ratio capacity.

Edmund Rice Camps are run all over the world and aim to provide marginalized children with the opportunity to “just be kids” – a simple pleasure that is often denied those living in extreme poverty.
