Shooting and Archery
Compete with others in your group or strive to be the best marksman.
Targets are available for you to keep as a 'memento' of your achievement.
Games, Movies and Bonfires
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.)
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
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.
It works best with 2 teams of 5-7 going against each other, or individual combat with 10-15 people.
Hide behind the tyre towers and attack your opponants with our slingshots and paintballs.
Somewhere to train?
Or simply a wet weather option for your winter camp?
Come and use the Gymnasium 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 are also 3x table tennis tables available (2 in the games room and 1 outside) or you can borrow the indoor bowls and skittles to use in the gymnasium.
On the mezzanine floor there is a Chapel/Conference Room and 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 Gymnasium can be hired for weekly or seasonal events and there is adequate parking and vehicle access.
Go Karts, BMX and Jiggers
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
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.
