Australian Children’s Charities
Cottage by the Sea is a non-government, registered charity that empowers disadvantaged children by supporting them in developing their self-esteem, health and well-being. We offer weekly camp programs in a safe, enjoyable and relaxed seaside holiday environment, encouraging children to celebrate their own success and that of others. Our vision is that every child deserves a happy and a healthy life.
We offer camps to children marginalised for a wide range of reasons, e.g. family breakdown and/or dysfunction, domestic violence, emotional/physical trauma, social/economic disadvantage, cultural disadvantage, refugee status or lack of educational opportunities. Over 1,200 children each year enjoy the experience of a lifetime at Cottage by the Sea.
Our programs emphasise co-operation and respect and encourage children to be healthy, active, happy and secure. Children are given the opportunity to participate in a range of leadership and outreach programs in a positive, friendly, healthy, seaside environment. Cottage by the Sea offers a number of camp programs, ranging from once-off camps (Take a Break) to ongoing support, engagement and leadership programs (REEF and Mentor).
