Who we are
The Edmund Rice Camps came into existence in the year 1990 and it was organised by some volunteers and the Christian Brothers School. This School was established in the year 1979 in the city of Melbourne. The Christian Brothers School had its main goal to be assisting students to better settle into their new environments. This was given to those students who came from either Vietnam or any of the Asian countries.
Nowadays, the Eddie Rice Camps have spread to all other major locations within Australia and each of these camps helps to provide essential services to people within that particular place.
