The Best Charity For Children

Australian Charity for Children

Cottage by the Sea is an Australian charity for disadvantaged children. We focus on nurturing the children and providing them with a fun and healthy environment, where they feel safe and cared for. We offer a wide range of activities and camps in diverse locations. Our camps and various initiatives aim to build self-esteem so the children can go into the world feeling confident. This is done through relationship building with peers and mentors, and through self-fulfilment in a wide range of activities that we provide.

Our camps and programs prioritise fun and opportunity, they are truly experiences that the children will cherish for the rest of their lives. No matter where the camp is or what the program is, you can be assured that the children all receive the loving attention of our mentors and will come back from the experience with new friends and a higher level of confidence. Our camp leaders are all qualified in a diverse range of different recreational activities so the children will always have something new to try. From something challenging like surfing to something simple like camping, all the children will have the opportunity to be a part of a close knit community.

While we are based in Queenscliff. We also have a National program. This program enhances and extends the current programs held at Cottage by the Sea, it encourages the children to explore new areas and meet new people from different areas.
