Targets are available for you to keep as a 'memento' of your achievement.

Games, Movies and Bonfires

We have a selection of board games to pass the time till supper, or you can project a movie on to the big screen and we'll provide the popcorn for your movie night.

The data projector is available for your use and there are also whiteboards at your disposal, but please supply your own white board markers.

A bonfire makes a great evening activity. We'll supply the wood so remember to bring your marshmallows to toast. We need at least 1 weeks advance warning of your intention to have a bonfire as we have to obtain a fire permit. Please check with us in advance as weather conditions can prevent one being issued and this needs to be allowed for in your planning.

If the weather lets you down, have hot chocolate, marshmallows and a games or movie night instead. (We do have some movies , but you are welcome to bring your own.)

Rope Maze

Test your agility skills by following the coloured rope and try and beat your competitors by being the first to get to the end of the rope.

Add to the challenge by being blind-folded and have someone shout the directions to you!

The rope maze has 2 different coloured, but equal length ropes, stretched between 8 posts, randomly interwoven. Each competitor is attached by a wrist band to keep them on track.

The Swimming Hole

We are fortunate to have 2 swimming areas on the Kauaeranga River accessible from camp.

One area is great for young children, non-swimmers and for playing games likes ducks and drakes, or skimming stones.
The second area is deep and ideal for confident swimmers and kayaking. Swimmers can cross the river and look back on the camp from the other bank.

We have single and double kayaks available and provide a range of life jacket sizes.

Flying Fox

Hold on tight to the rope as you fly across the field. The Flying Fox is fast and suitable for all children, aged 5 and older. Watch out for those wet sponges if you are "flying" during the summer months!

Gymnasium/Events Centre

Need a venue for a sports event?
Somewhere to train?
Or simply a wet weather option for your winter camp?
Come and use the Gymnasium/Events Centre which can provide the solution to all of the above. This full size basketball/netball court can be easily and quickly transformed for both volleyball or badminton. A perfect place for indoor soccer or hockey too. Nets and balls are available for your use. Set out your circuit and take advantage of the space for training, or shoot a few hoops with your friends.

There is also table tennis available or you can borrow the indoor bowls and skittles.

On the mezzanine floor there is a kitchenette. Downstairs are male and female toilets and showers. There is also a disabled shower and toilet with access to the building which is wheelchair friendly.

The Events Centre can be hired for weekly or seasonal events and there is adequate parking and vehicle access.

Go Karts, BMX and Jiggers

The Go Kart track gives everyone an opportunity to test their driving skills. A chance to see how fast you can go without spinning out.

Come and be challenged on the BMX track, with a steep slope to give you the speed you will need to navigate the zig-zag at the bottom before embarking on the uphill drag to get back to the beginning and off you go again.
For hose who like to use more skill there is the BMX Challenge Course with cobble stones, limbo bar and a slalom pole for you to negotiate.

For those who prefer a more sedate ride, the Railway Jiggers are perfect for you, but they require more effort from the driver! Potter around the track over the creek and back to the station.

Night and Day - Whole Camp Activities

Our camp covers 16 acres of land and is great for games such as Capture the Flag, or you can follow the clues and complete the orienteering game we can provide for you.

At night 'Spotlight' or 'Sardines' can be played on the playing fields or in and around the buildings. Borrow our games resource folder and be inspired by the games you can play.

Watch out for the surprises you will encounter and negotiate on our Burma Trail. We can lend you some of the things you need but you are welcome to be creative and add your own touch to this fun and scary activity.
