Our vision is that everyone deserves a happy and healthy life.

Our mission is to enhance the lives of more children by providing inspiration, fun and opportunity within a holiday environment.

We achieve our mission through our diverse programs, which take the form of short-stay camps and are offered in a wide range of environments. During their camp experience, we provide children with opportunities to build positive relationships with peers and adult role models, which helps participants learn and grow when they return to their schools and communities.

We also offer respite holidays for families, who are referred to us by welfare agencies. This holiday by the sea can help families reconnect, have some fun and create happy memories. Importantly, this service can restore a person’s faith in society through knowing there are people in the community who care for them. This little bit of kindness can bring hope for a better future.

Everything we do at Cottage
by the Sea reflects our values:
