Workcamps

“Workcamps” are organised and run by Warrane College in conjunction with Reledev Australia Limited, a non-profit, voluntary and AusAID accredited NGO.

Workcamps have been held across the Pacific Rim, parts of Asia and at several Aboriginal communities within Australia. These volunteer service projects aim to contribute towards the immediate welfare and sustainable development of the various communities.

This initiative started in 1987 with the intention to serve people in need in developing countries and disadvantaged communities within Australia.

Workcamps also aim to encourage the generosity and sense of solidarity of young Australians.

Workcamp participants meet their own accommodation and travel expenses in addition to contributing towards the project cost. Participants are also involved in seeking donations or sponsorship from companies and individuals to cover the remaining costs.
