Please be aware that Woodhouse Activity Centre will be closed to the public for a private event on the 19th and 20th of October 2019.  Please plan your visit around these dates.

About the event 


If you're new to camping, or between tents, we've got your covered.

For an additional $15 person, you can hire a tent and mattress, so all you need to worry about is your sleeping gear. Pack up is included in your hire, but for a few extra bucks we'll even set it up for you (we do encourage you to have the full camping experience and do this yourself, though... it's all part of the fun!).

Woodhouse is at the Australian Primary Principals' Association National Conference from 3-5 September with our ‘School Camp’ hat on.
We’re passionate about creating equity in a child’s critical developmental years and believe that every child deserves to have a fun School Camp experience at a price that parents can afford.
In a safe environment, we see growth in areas such as self-confidence, independence, resilience and social awareness while exploring and learning new skills.

Check out the flash flood we had in Cox's Creek at the bottom of Challenge Hill that completely covered over the bridge, the Wade & Climb and the Rope Swing Crossing obstacles. It was pretty crazy and happened within the space of about 15 minutes. Then, by the next morning - right back to normal! Thankfully no major damage was caused and the obstacles were ready for action in time for the weekend.
