Camp Curumbene

"A Great Life Experience"

Activities:

What activities are there to do at Camp Curumbene?

There are lots of great fun activities with an emphasis on safety. Some include flying fox, archery, abseiling, climbing walls…. for a full rundown visit the Activities page.

I am concerned about the safety aspects of some of the activities at Camp such as abseiling, canoeing and the flying fox…how safe are these?

The above activities are all run and taught by our trained and experienced staff in conjunction with a teacher/leader from your group.

Our canoeing area is a medium sized shallow series of dams, our training dam is about the size of an Olympic swimming pool and is approximately half a metre deep. Our other connecting dams are 1.2 metres deep. Students are not able to proceed from the training dam until they have met our basic skill criteria and are always supervised by a Camp Curumbene staff member and a teacher/ leader.

Abseiling and the flying fox are conducted by a Camp Curumbene Staff member using the most current equipment and techniques…click for more information.

What about the other activities?

All other Camp activities are run by a teacher/leader after a comprehensive safety briefing by Camp Curumbene Staff.

Do we have any free time and what activities are available during this time?

We generally have around one and a half hours of free time each afternoon. Camp Curumbene has lots of activities on offer such as the games room (billards and table tennis), half basketball court, tennis court, beach volleyball, frisbee golf and of course our farm animals love to be fed. Camp Curumbene Staff are able to assist you with your planning during this time.
