Our camps

Whether it’s conquering that first abseil, team success at crossing the ‘acid river’ or the wonderful feeling of sharing a campfire with new friends, your camp experience will be a rewarding one.

Our four metropolitan camps each offer unique recreation and accommodation. From the tranquil bush of Bickley, a river retreat at Point Walter to our coastal camps at Woodman Point and Ern Halliday, you'll discover the perfect location for your school, community or corporate group.

Our regional camp, Camp Quaranup, offers many opportunities to explore Albany and the Great Southern. Situated on the harbour, this historic location is a popular regional destination.
