School Camps

One of our camp focuses is school programs. Each year, Wedderburn Christian Campsite has over 5,500 campers stay at our property. Our campers enjoy a wide variety of activities, from high adrenalin & educational to creative as well as personal development programs. The majority of our School Camps booked are via ‘word of mouth’ and ‘repeat-bookings’, this in itself is testimony to our professional and flexible approach to camps.

FULLY PROGRAMMED CAMPS – teachers relax! Wedderburn Christian Campsite staff supervise and coordinate the days programs from BREAKFAST TO BED.  This allows flexibility for teachers to float between activities, mingle and have some time for R&R!  This way of running camps has been credited as a ‘significant advantage’ of our campsite by regular clients. All programs are tailored to your school’s particular requirements.  Do you have desired outcomes from your camping experience? We will design a program to suit your needs addressing issues such as facing fears, team work, encouragement and environmental education. Please check out our most common camps below!
