Changing Hearts – Changing Lives
Since 1999, The Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp Program, Camp Firefly, has given Year 11 students the opportunity to care for children with special needs over a four-day period, in what is a unique experience for all involved.
The children are treated to a camp full of thrilling and exciting adventures and cared for in either Pymble or Shore’s (Sydney Church of England Grammar School) Boarding Houses, 24 hours a day, by Pymble and Shore students. These Year 11 students, supported by a team of dedicated teaching and medical staff, will quickly learn about the challenges and demands involved in caring for a child with special needs in a life-changing experience.
