Summer 2021 camps cancelled due to ongoing COVID-19 situation

With much disappointment and sadness, the Committee of Camp Cooinda has made the difficult decision to cancel our regular summer camps for this year based on the unstable and unprecedented COVID-19 situation

Emails have been sent to leaders and campers explaining this decision. We recognise that this brings with it a sense of disappointment for the fun times and adventures that will be missed, and that this is one in a long list of disappointments and missed opportunities that 2020 may have thrown your way.

The Committee is keen to maintain engagement with campers, leaders, and our wider community at this time. We're hoping to offer online opportunities to virtually engage with the Cooinda community while we aren’t meeting in person. In 2021 we plan to hold two 60 + 1 celebrations we had to postpone this year – a celebratory evening to be held in Melbourne, in addition to an onsite reunion camp on the Banksia Peninsula. Plans for these events have already commenced, and we are looking forward to seeing you all in person at some stage next year.

We hope you are all well and staying physically – not socially – distanced during this exceptional time. 

  

Keep in touch

Even though we aren't holding summer camps this year, please use the Camper Enquiry Form to register your details with Camp Cooinda to keep in touch - this will ensure you're among the first to know when we hold virtual or in person events.
