The two sites both offer their own accommodation, catering and are a 15 minute walk apart, making all activities available to both camp sites.

Our camps are led by qualified and trained instructors with every program accomplishing driven and organic outcomes from building independence, increasing resilience, improving social skills and stimulating a strong sense of adventure, just to name a few!

Try our Survivor Program; a new unique camp experience! Students form 'tribes' and work together to complete a series of themed challenges. Suitable for Grades 4 - 11, and particularly beneficial for Year 7 as they transition to high school.
