Uni Camp for Kids has run picnics and camps for the socially, emotionally and financially disadvantaged children of Perth for the past 80 years. We hold 4 picnics annually, however unfortunately due to the Covid crisis this will be the 1st of 2 picnics we will run this year. Each Picnic provides a day of enjoyment for Perth’s mos tunderprivileged children recommended to our program by relevant childcare professionals. The fun activity filled day is provided free of cost to the children, thanks to exhaustive fundraising by our student committee and student volunteers. Picnic also provides the children’s carers and/or families with much needed respite. Furthermore, Picnic provides opportunities for our student volunteers to offer positive role modelling and mentorship to the children in our program. Picnics often offer student volunteers a unique insight into a vastly different socio-economic context than their own.
Student volunteers or “leaders” are carefully paired so that at least one experienced leader and oneleader with a valid driver’s license and roadworthy car, is present in every partnership. Every pair is allocated 2-3 children to collect and care for and engage with in their “family” for the day. Each“family” will drive to the park venue for a 10am arrival. The children will be entertained with inflatables, games, craft and sports until midday. Families then leave to arrive at the pool venue by1pm. Between the two venues, families will organise their own lunch. The children are at the pool venue until 3.30pm, when they will prepare to leave and be dropped back at their homes
