A geographical perspective ....

The camp is built on 16 acres of terraced grassland overlooking the Kauaeranga River. Only 5kms from the township of Thames, it is surrounded by hill-country farms, and within easy reach of the acclaimed Pinnacles tramp (30 minute drive from camp to the trail base) and the Kauaeranga Valley Visitors Centre ( DOC) which is only a 10 minute drive up the valley. The camp is also ideally situated for biking along the Hauraki Bike Trail which can be accessed at Kopu, within 10 minutes drive from camp.

Situated at the gateway to the Coromandel Peninsula we are just a short drive from many places of interest, Coromandel Town, Colville, Whitianga, Whangamata, Waihi, Tairua, Puanui, Ngatea, Hot Water Beach (Cooks Beach), Hahei and Miranda Hot Springs, to name a few. The local area is ideal for horse trekking, mountain biking, abseiling, tramping, kayaking, nature walks or just sitting back and enjoying the scenery while being looked after by our staff. For the keen fly fisherman we are ideally located along the popular and acclaimed Kauaeranga River, reputed to be in the top 15 fly fishing locations in NZ.

A historical perspective .......

In 1975 some dedicated and devoted Christians recognised the impact that the exposure to God's creation could have on people's spiritual wellbeing, especially in such a tranquil and scenic environment, inspiring the mission statement "To show that God is real to campers as they relax and enjoy His creation in the beautiful Kauaeranga Valley".
