Sony Camp

Changing Hearts – Changing Lives

Since 1999, The Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp Program 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.

Camp Firefly will again be co-hosted by Pymble and Shore in 2017. For more information, please email

The video below, produced by Shore students, captures some highlights of the four-day camp.
