The water is slowly creeping up at Roonka. Fortunately our camping areas and buildings are well above the 1956 flood levels, so Roonka remains a pretty amazing base from which to explore the Riverland and safely witness this high river event.

Facilitated Camp Packages

We share your passion in creating equity in a child’s critical developmental years and believe that every child deserves to have a fun camp experience at a price that parents can afford. 

Drawing from years of experience facilitating School Camps at established sister property, Woodhouse Adventure Park in the Adelaide Hills, we’re thrilled to bring the adventure to the Riverland.

Our goal is to make your camp preparation as carefree as possible, so we’ve put together some specific outcome based activity packages for you to choose from that allows you to ‘set and forget’.

Of course if you’d like to choose your own adventure and tailor a package to your group’s specific needs, that’s cool too!

SURVIVAL – SET & FORGET PACKAGE (recommended years 5-10)

With everything from shelter building amongst the scrubland and pioneering construction by the creek, to lighting fires with minimal equipment and cooking on lightweight stoves, this program has it all for an active, adventurous bunch of kids!

We’ll take them right back to basics with a program that builds sequentially from fundamental to more advanced survival skills. All of the activities in this package are designed to facilitate team building, boost group morale, and of course, deliver a whole lot of fun with a healthy dose of challenge!

WET & WILD – SET & FORGET PACKAGE (recommended years 3-10 for terms 1 and 4)

Looking for an all-around camp filled with water, challenge and adventure? Look no further! The Wet & Wild activity package will have students swinging, sliding, swimming and climbing while also having the opportunity to learn new skills and gain knowledge about the area.

It isn’t all fun and games – at every turn these activities will stretch your limits, challenge your comfort zone, and test your teamwork…. but we guarantee you’ll love every minute of it!

LIVING IN NATURE – SET & FORGET PACKAGE (recommended years 3-10)

Students will get to explore the rich history and environment that Roonka has to offer. These activities will have your students getting hands-on in the world around them! Think: investigating bug life and water quality in our onsite billabong, learning to cook on an open fire, how to set up a campsite and navigate in the world around you.

With a balance of educationally focussed and “just for fun” fun activities, our outdoor classroom is the perfect setting for students to learn how to live in nature.
