Winter School Holiday Camps now open!
New Winter Dates Released:
School Holiday Activities – Southern Highlands: 11th – 15th July 2016
With 5 days of fantastic outdoor school holiday activities in the beautiful Southern Highlands there’s sure to be something for everyone.
The camps are designed to give local and visiting kids and families an alternative to what they might normally do in the school holidays. With places available for 8 -16 yer olds and parent friendly hours (Drop off at 8.00 am – Pick Up at 6.00pm) its a great alternative to traditional child care options.
Our camps are designed so that each day there will be a myriad of outdoor adventure activity options. Designed to be challenge by choice activities offer kids an opportunity to expand their comfort zones, expose them to new challenges, meet new friends and most importantly to have fun – all whilst learning a little bit more about themselves along the way.

The Outdoor Education Group recently hosted its annual ‘Hewison Golden Backpacker Awards’ night, a formal evening that celebrates each and every one of our staff and the work of our organisation. There wasn’t a hiking boot in sight as our New South Wales staff primped and preened for their celebration in Moss Vale. Our Victorian colleagues looked equally dapper as they held their celebration in Eildon.
Seven awards made up the presentation part of the evening and these are awarded to staff voted for by their peers. Of those awards Camp Wombaroo did exceptionally well, with four of the seven awards going to the following:
- Educator of the Year: Meghan Fuery
- Employee of the Year: Kevin Stott
- Excellence Award: Moyra Douglas
- Hewison Award for Partnerships and Innovation: Stuart Whyte
Congratulations to all the nominees and award winners!
In addition to our new ensuite teacher rooms we now have a dedicated self-catering kitchen ideal for group sizes of up to 40 people. The new facility comes complete with gas burners, oven, refrigerated storage, microwave and two dishwashers, in fact everything you need to provide catering for a group retreat or family gathering.
There is a dedicated dining room attached to the kitchen, and also sliding doors leading out onto a raised deck area. The deck provides a wonderful spot to take in the views of the surrounding paddocks and local wildlife.
Camp Wombaroo is delighted to announce we are joining the Great Aussie Camp Out (GACO).
Saturday 10 – Sunday 11 October 2015
GACO 2015 will bring together thousands of Australians for one big night where they will share the experience of camping out under the stars…….in their own backyards, on a river bank, a park, a caravan park or at a camp like ours.
Camp Wombaroo has put together a program of fun activities, shared meals, stories around the campfire and of course the opportunity to camp out in the open. With something for all the family its a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends in the great outdoors!
