If you are looking for fun, innovative, outdoor adventures and active learning experiences this school holiday…. Camp Cooby is the right place for you and your children!

2 SPECIALTY CAMPS FOR TEENAGERS
For ages 12 to 16 – during 6th April to 9th April 2020
Our vision at Camp Cooby is to help young people be leaders for themselves, others, and the environment. We’re uprooting from our usual base at our Camp Cooby Function Centre and are instead setting up camp on Cooby Dam for a week of water based action! Designed for our senior campers (12-16 years), this camp offers a range of water based activities including canoeing, sailing, and raft building, combined with some of our good old fashioned camp games and outdoor fun.
For ages 12 to 16
Hiking, star gazing, toasting marshmallows by the fire, and enjoying the serenity of the great outdoors….does it get much better?! Our Teen Expedition Camp includes all of this and MORE!
Our Teen Expedition Camp is designed for our senior campers (12 – 16 years) and will incorporate a mixture of expedition-based activities onsite at our Camp Cooby Campus, as well as an overnight expedition to the other side of Cooby Dam! During the first two days of camp, campers will learn key wilderness survival skills, ration their food, and prep their hiking packs before hiking to the other side of Cooby Dam on day 3. Once arrived at their destination, our avid explorers will set up camp, cool down in the lagoon, prepare dinner by the fire, and join in our mystery night activity before unwinding under the stars. On the last day of camp, our adventurers will make the trek back to camp…which may or may not involve wetting a paddle or two!
Camp Cooby FUN!
Be part of something special. Explore the world through a different lens. The moment you arrive at Camp Cooby, you can feel the energy and wonder of this magical location. We then add amazing kids together with our team for a super fun adventure… and the energy just surges like a volcano!
Holiday Camp — is a time to hunt for insects, search for native animals, master handstands, try new things, getting wet and running wild, exploring the hilltops, trees and the lake, and of course a time to make new friends.
Our young campers come from all over Australia (mostly Queensland and New South Wales), with a mix of international young people that come from all around the world. Our mission is to create a multi-cultural camp experience with students from all different backgrounds where we share our diversity and overcome adversity together whilst working on our camp challenges.
