Sony Foundation Children's Holiday Camp - September

2018 EVENT:   SATURDAY 22 SEPTEMBER - MONDAY 24 SEPTEMBER, at St Patrick's College Townsville.

St Patrick's College Townsville is proud to host the Sony Foundation Children's Holiday Camp each year.

The event is a partnership between St Patrick’s College Townsville and Ignatius Park College and is designed for children with special needs.

As the charitable arm of the Sony Group of Companies, the Sony Foundation has been staging camps throughout Australia since 1999. 

This year a group of 21 children with special needs will participate in the three day live-in camp based at the St Patrick’s College boarding school on the first weekend of the September school holidays.

Year 11 students from St Patrick’s and Ignatius Park Colleges will be involved in caring for and running a range of activities for the children both on and outside of college grounds. The students will be supported by a team of teaching and medical staff. The program provides senior students with the unique opportunity to care for a child with special needs over a three-day period, in what is a life-changing experience for all.


If you are nurse and enjoy working with children with special needs, then you will love the Sony experience.  If you would like to volunteer for a shift, please email
