Health camps

Many New Zealanders considered their days at the beach to be a highpoint of childhood. So, the Children’s Health Camp movement located a number of their camps close to a beach, where children could enjoy the sun and the physical freedoms of sand and sea. There was a large Children’s Health Camp at Ōtaki Beach, where John Pascoe photographed these children playing in 1945.
