School and General Camps

School camps

Schools looking for an accredited camp with excellent facilities, a recreation program that can be focused on meeting VELS requirements, that is located a short, affordable distance from Melbourne will struggle to find a better appreciated camp venue.

Community and large family camps

Community and family groups will find the camp an ideal venue as discrete areas of the camp are booked on an area by area basis rather than by room. A weekend staying in the Bayside Units, self catering in the Nautilus Centre, can cost as little as $56.25 / person when all beds are filled.

Self catered camps

Weekend self catering groups will find that either the Bayside Unit or Parade Ground areas of the camp have good self catering possibilities.

For more information see our General Camps.
