Kidney Kids Camp

Each year, the Kidney Kids Camp brings together children living with kidney disease and their siblings from across the country.

The camp particularly encourages children and their families to create meaningful connections with others who have similar issues and challenges.

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your efforts… I didn’t know what to expect, and was quite anxious as dropping off Alex, as she has required so much love and care of late… she had a wonderful time, I don’t think she wanted to come home…I am quite taken aback by the changes in Alex that I have seen. You have done such an amazing job…I know Alex has changed and grown into a more confident young lady which is so exciting to see after all that she has been through.”

- Rachel Byrne, a 'Kidney Kid' mum.

The camps support the whole family, offering 'Kidney Kids' siblings a better understanding of chronic kidney disease, whilst providing respite for parents.

Volunteering at Kidney Kids Camp

Many wonderful volunteers who assist at Kidney Kids Camp come from universities and hospitals. However, anyone can apply to volunteer. If you’d be involved, please email us at

Please be aware that parents of children who are attending the camp are not eligible to volunteer. This is because an aim of the camp is to provide parents with a period of respite, whilst also encouraging children and young adults the chance to interact freely with their peers.

How to support the Kidney Kids Camp

Kidney Kids Camp is supported by Kidney Health Australia's fundraising programs and volunteer participation. You can donate the Kidney Kids Camp through the Kidney Kar Rally or directly via our website.

Kidney disease does not go away with treatment and tends to get worse over time. We are extremely grateful for all the generous support that enables this life-enriching program to touch the lives of so many children living with kidney disease, and their families.
