Port Kennedy Beach Camp
Port Kennedy Beach Camp opened in January 1976 by the Department of Community Welfare and served as a retreat for foster children, young offenders and as a break, for both the child and their family.
Activities held at this location were commonly referred to as 'Kennedy programmes,' lasting between two and five days each and were designed for teenaged children, many of whom were offenders.
Children also served their Community Service Orders hours here, passing their time on useful projects which developed both themselves and the camp grounds.
