Excellent leaders - kept the students engaged, spoke with confidence and were fun but with lessons that will carry students through life.
TONI, ASSUMPTION COLLEGE
Our staff and students are raving about their experiences with Camp Kokoda this year. I have heard nothing but really positive stories about all aspects of camp. Thank you to the whole team at Camp Kokoda for providing such a unique and powerful experience to our young people.
JANE, ST ANDREWS ANGLICAN COLLEGE
Staff members were really impressed with the instructors in terms of organisation, enthusiasm and engagement. We particiularly liked bush craft, teaching the students how to identify trees, make damper etc. The activities extended the student learning of bush survival and general interest in camping.
MICHELLE, LORETO COLLEGE
The camp sites provided a warm and safe atmosphere for the girls. Choices were provided for each meal. There were plentiful amounts that were fresh and healthy. The staff were friendly, humorous and established respectful relationships with the girls.
JACKIE, GLENNIE SCHOOL
The staff and facilities at Camp Kokoda are first class. The Year 9 camp is a highlight on the school calendar for the students.
MATTHEW, LINDISFARNE ANGLICAN GRAMMAR SCHOOL
The best part of our program was watching the enormous growth over the four days. They managed themselves really well while facing challenges and working together. The group was quite disparate on the first day but had become a cohesive team by the end.
KATHY STEWARD, COFFS HARBOUR HIGH
All the activities kept the students buzzing with excitement and I was amazed at the level of participation. The activities were challenging, but the students were well prepared and felt safe enough to give it a go.
BETH HART, GAP STATE HIGH
As an experienced outdoor education administrator, I watched with great pleasure as the instructors showed their skill in handling the children, their totally thorough briefing and debriefing of the group for each activity, and in addition, their competence in the areas of safety and activities planned.
