At St Ignatius’ College Riverview we take great pleasure in holding an annual four day holiday camp for children with physical and intellectual disabilities.
Is there a cost involved with the ICHC?
No, the ICHC is entirely free, funded by both The Sony Foundation, Saint Ignatius College, Riverview and private donors.
What ages are accepted at the camp?
Campers from the ages of 5 to 15 are accepted at ICHC. Please email [email protected] if any queries.
Can my child attend twice?
Children are only allowed to attend the ICHC once to enable many children to attend over the years. Your child may attend another of the Sony Foundation camps across Sydney. Please ask for some information on them.
Who is responsible for my child at camp?
Registered nurses and senior students from St Ignatius College Riverview, Monte Saint Angelo, and Loreto Kirribilli, and staff from all schools involved in running the camp staff the camp.
What does my child need to bring along?
Please check our page for “What to Bring?”
Can my child have their own room?
Yes, but we can arrange a share room with your child’s companion if preferred.
What about special dietary requirements?
We can accommodate most dietary requirements but you are welcome to provide these supplies to ensure your child continues with what he is accustomed to.
Can I visit my child at the camp?
The camp is designed to offer respite to families and independence to children so we do not encourage visitors. After the camp we send out a DVD of the highlights of your child’s time at the camp.
Can I contact staff during the camp?
Yes, you can call the Chief of Camp to see how your child is enjoying the camp. You will receive a card with relevant phone numbers to contact the camp at any time. Of course, we would contact you immediately should the need arise.
