The Great Getaways: Over 55’s Camps

Need a Getaway?rjg_081103_2152

  • Want to get away from the city?
  • Spend time in nature?
  • Make friends?
  • Try fun outdoor activities?

The Great Getaways are programs being conducted by the Australian Camps Association with support from Sport and Recreation Victoria.

These programs are specifically designed for people over the age of 55  looking to enjoy camps and the outdoors.

When we discuss camps, many people automatically think of tents and sleeping on the ground. These programs are different; they use use comfortable dormitory style accommodation (what many people would refer to as ‘school camps’) – ie. outdoor programs with the comforts of indoor accommodation.

This year we have two Getaways planned for October 2017 in order to cater for varying fitness and experience levels.

Join us for what will be a wonderful time in the outdoors, where you’ll get to challenge yourself and meet new people.
