What our guests say . . .

"Kiaido Ryu Martial Arts have been running 2 camps a year at the Kauaeranga Valley Christian Camp for over 8 years.
During this time the facility has been improving every year with the dorm bunks being fitted with real comfortable inner sprung mattresses and the dining and kitchen looking amazing with all the updating.
We have always found the camp managers accommodating and friendly and the food has been fabulous.
The rooms and grounds are always tidy and clean and ready for us to come in and start our training.
It's set in such a beautiful Valley so is truely relaxing while we are chilling out between lessons.
The large gym is such a bonus for us as we can spread out and always have space for our students when we move out into special groups. Kiaido Ryu Students always enjoy this amazing facility every year.

    Guest commments contd:

    "Kauaeranga Valley Christian Camp caters for all students with its wide range of activities, spacious grounds and comfortable accomodation. Sue and David are the perfect hosts, catering for all needs with a smile and the typical Kiwi 'can do' attitude. The KVCC camp experience was a memorable and rewarding one. 
    David Wilcock - Mission Heights Primary" 2017 

    "KVCC is an awesome experience for groups who aspire to develop team building, improve overall well-being and enhance their appreciation for Thames beautiful environment. One of the most important aspects for us was the respect all staff had towards our religious practices. It was great to see KVCC cater to our Islamic special character by providing a prayer space for us, giving us the food we are allowed to eat and by giving us space to enjoy the grounds on our own without male intervention. This really meant a lot to us all and we appreciate your awesome hospitality. Thank you all so much." Zayed College, 2017
