Sony Foundation Children's Holiday Camp

Townsville Grammar School is proud to host the Sony Foundation Children's Holiday Camp at the North Ward Campus each year.

The Sony Foundation Children's Holiday Camp is an official event of the Sony Foundation. It involves a three-day, two-night live-in program for children with special needs, hosted by the School in the Boarding House.

Each year a group of Year 11 students volunteer to train as "Sony Companions", engaging in a series of workshops in preparation for the event. Children from local and regional schools register to be involved in the camp and two Year 11 students are assigned to each child "camper". The program is supported by a health and wellbeing team including registered nurses throughout the event.

During the camp, the children engage in a range of activities, supported by their Year 11 companions. It is 24 hour commitment and can be a challenging and exhausting but incredibly rewarding experience. Sony Camp is frequently described as "life-changing" by the Year 11 companions and in many cases, this experience has led to students deciding to pursue careers working with children with special needs.
