The Rotary Club of Camberwell represents 60 years of service to the community.
As members we conduct the renowned Camberwell Art Show plus the Hawthorn Craft Market, which provide substantial sums to a multitude of projects here and overseas. We volunteer for and assist in a plethora of other projects and we have fun doing it all.
Our membership is broad and welcoming and partners quickly form friendships too. If you would like to become part of a Club that provides the rewards of giving to others and social interaction in a friendly, relaxed environment you are welcome to attend any of our weekly dinner meetings.
We meet Wednesdays from 6.30pm to 7.45pm
at Canterbury Centre, 2 Rochester Road, Canterbury
Prospective members are welcome to attend and have a free meal with us. Please contact us to advise if you are coming.

Named after the soft red Freddo frog shape and sized lollies, Red Frogs is an organisation of volunteers who aim to keep partying teenagers safe at events such as “Schoolies Week” and festivals. Basics such as low blood sugar, dehydration and keeping safe can be problems faced by partying teenagers who may forget to eat yet continue to consume alcohol.
