Free Holiday Camps for Kids

Doxa Youth Foundation will be running camps during the Summer and Term One holidays.

As a not-for-profit organisation Doxa Foundation is committed to ensuring that all kids regardless of their family’s means have the opportunity to go on camp. 


During the Summer and Term One holidays, Doxa will be running camps in both the city and our bushland camp in Malmsbury.  They will cater for children from 10 to 12 years old.  

City Camp 

Located in the heart of the CBD, our City Camp will offer participants the opportunity to discover all the things that our vibrant city has to offer.  From the large iconic attractions to hidden gems of Melbourne’s laneways, sporting activities and even an amazing race, the experience they have will be like no other. 

Malmsbury Camp 

Our Malmsbury Camp is located in idyllic bush setting in Central Victoria where campers will have exciting outdoor adventures.  Onsite there are all sorts of facilities including a giant swing, a climbing wall and trampolines and we visit stand out local attractions such as steam train. 

Dates for both Camps 

January 9 to January 13
January 16 to January 20
April 11 to April 14
April 17 to April 21


To ensure that our camps are accessible to all children, we provide transport from central pick points at the Southern Cross Station in Melbourne and from the regional towns of Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong and Traralgon.  Parents can also drop off and pick up their child from camp. 


During Summer and Term One, these camps will be free as campers will be paid for through the Victorian Government Positive Start Programme.
