Q. My child has dietary requirements. Will they be catered for?
In 99% of cases, yes. Food allergies and intolerances are becoming more and more common. We have 2 qualified chefs who work with these challenges every day. A typical school group may have up to 20% of their students and teachers affected by needs ranging from gluten, egg or milk allergies through to diabetic, vegan, FODMAP and low-calorie diets. We are aware of the seriousness of these needs, especially with anaphylaxis. In the case that your child is especially sensitive, or their diet is very unusual, please give us a call to discuss.
Q. But what if the allergies are severe. Could I send food from home?
Absolutely! You know your child better than anyone. Feel free to send along pre-cooked food from home. Please make sure it is in a microwave safe container and let us know in advance if you plan on taking this approach. Just remember we are a nut free camp. Almond milk is not allowed.
Q. I am concerned about my child coming in contact with nuts while on camp. What is your nut policy?
We are a nut free camp. All guests are discouraged from bringing nut products into the premises. Some of our pre-packaged foods "may contain traces of nuts"
Q. My child is a fussy eater. Can you please tell me what he/she will be eating whilst on camp?
Please see the link at the bottom of this page for a full outline of our 4-night camp menu. All menus will be a variation of this. Additionally, a list of all food items and brands used at camp is also attached below.
Q. What does my son/daughter need to take to camp?
A full list of recommended items is attached at the bottom of this page. Please remember to send a pillow, sleeping bag and towel.
Q. My son/daughter is anxious about staying away from home. Is there somewhere close by that I can stay in case I am needed?
Our camp is quite remote, so accommodation options are limited. Echo Bend Caravan park and Old School Bed and Breakfast (Fernbank) are the closest options. They are 10-20 minutes away.
