Summer 2023

All our summer camps are fully booked. Applications for 2023-24 will open in October. If you are not currently on our mailing list, please submit an enquiry form to be informed as soon as applications open.

We are looking forward to running camps more like they were prior to our COVID summer, while still respecting all COVIDSafe principles and requirements. 

Here's the information you need to know about this summer.


Camp One: Thursday 29 December 2022 to Thursday 5 January 2023

Camp Two: Tuesday 10 January to Tuesday 17 January 2023

Who can participate?

Campers who will be between 12 and 18 years old on 29 December 2022 can apply for camp.


$545 per camper, plus $75 bus travel from Melbourne to Banksia Peninsula and back.

A concession price of $400 (+$75 for the bus) is available for those who meet the concession criteria described on the application form. 

We also have some subsidised places for families who are doing it tough. You can request one of these in the application process - please do so as soon as possible so we can make sure we know who requires this additional support early.

More information

If you have previously registered with us, look for your email to arrive in October 2022 and get those applications in quickly as we expect the spots to fill quickly. 

We are all looking forward to getting back into the summer programs on the Banksia Peninsula and surrounds, and we hope to see you there!

Camp Cooinda continues to take the health, safety and wellbeing of our community seriously. We have a long history of providing outdoor experiences for young people. While COVID vaccinations will not be a requirement to attend camp this summer, they will be highly recommended.

To learn more about camp, 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.
