Family Day Camps
VIRWC is holding three FREE Family Day Camps at the Melbourne Zoo as part of its Family Champions for Safer Communities project. This initiative aims to develop the inherent resilience within diverse families and to promote social cohesion amongst our communities in a creative and culturally responsive way.
Families with children aged 9-19 and living in the southern (for the 30th April camp), northern (14th May camp) and western (21st May camp) suburbs are encouraged to apply.
