Seaside Camp for Children

The Crippled Children's Seaside Home Society is an association formed to provide inexpensive holiday accommodation and facilities for children and adults with physical or mental disabilities. There are approximately 3000 people with various disabilities in Western Australia that utilise the Society's facilities and of course many more directly involved with them. Other groups such as School groups, Sporting organisations Church groups or Community groups can also apply to hire the facilities 

The Crippled Children's Seaside Home Society is a not for profit organisation with a Board made up of volunteers and a paid Caretaker for the Society's Property


Summer by the sea all year long

Our camp at Palm Beach is now well established. With many years of fruitful labour behind us we now look to the continual support of the Society's activities in maintaining and improving the facilities of the Palm Beach Camp so that all children with disabilities in the State may enjoy a happy care-free holiday irrespective of class, colour or creed. 

Here, these children can spend a novel, carefree and welcome holiday. 

The Seaside Camp for Children (previously the Alfred Hines Seaside Home) has 5 dormitories with separate rooms in each dormitory. The camp can sleep a maximum of 120 people. There is also separate accommodation for leaders. The camp has recently been outfitted with new Pipeline beds and comfortable mattresses. Campers will have to bring their own pillows, linen and blankets or sleeping bag.

Facilities also include a large dining hall and modern kitchen with a cool room attached. The camp is well set up for self-catering with all cooking utensils available. A lovely barbecue area and large patio overlooks the sea and Garden Island. Portable gas barbecues are provided upon request. No resident cook available at the camp. Laundry facilities are also available to campers. A separate Art/Craft room is also available to groups using the camp. 

Our Camp is Wheelchair Accessible.
