Camp One Saturday 29 December 2018 to Saturday 5 January 2019

Both our summer camps run for 8 days/7 nights and are for teenagers aged 12-18 years. The cost is $430 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.
