Dates for Summer 2017 - 2018

Camp One Friday 29 December 2017 to Friday 5 January 2018

Both our summer camps run for 8 days/7 nights and are for teenagers aged 12-18 years. The cost is $415 plus optional return bus travel for $75. Our costs are heavily subsidised to provide low cost camps with full catering for 8 days which includes the use of more than forty boats and overnight expedition campsite fees. For each camp, Camp Cooinda charters a bus to travel 300km between two pick up points in Melbourne and the campsite.


Brochure and Online Application

The Camp Cooinda brochure and online application portal for the coming 2018-19 summer camps will be available later in the year. Applications open on 1st October and close when each camp reaches the maximum number set to maintain the quality of our program. To learn more about camp you can download the summer brochure and read a more detailed description of Risks and Safety at Camp Cooinda (PDF) so that you can make an informed decision about applying for enrolment. The document Is Cooinda right for you? will also help you decide whether the Cooinda program is right for you or someone you know.
