School Camping Victoria - Camp Coolamatong - The best
Coolamatong has two distinct campsites, the Farm Camp providing a huge range of introductory onsite camping experiences, while the Lake Camp provides tailor made outdoor education programs designed for your group utilising the vast beauty of the Gippsland Lakes. We are famous for producing happy campers who depart better equipped for the challenges they face, inspired to build their personal capacity, and nurtured to understanding that their lives are valuable and important.

School Camping Victoria - Overview
The mission of Camp Coolamatong is to provide an exciting and safe camping experience that equips, inspires, and nurtures students through school camping programs that are tailored to meet the needs of each individual group - and through this experience, demonstrate the hope of the Christian faith."
Not just somewhere to sleep, the facilities at each campsite are designed to be appropriate to the age and stage of our campers, with comfort, convenience and security in mind.
We will design a program in partnership with your staff to ensure that it is tailored to meet the specific needs of your group.
Featuring bushwalking, archery, canoeing, abseiling, low ropes, mountain biking, rafting, sailing, water skiing, expeditions ... and the rest!!
Both camps have direct access to the Gippsland Lakes, the Farm Camp offering 160 acres of pastural outlook, and the Lake Camp nestled in secluded coastal bushland.
Our goal is to ensure lead teachers have all the camp support and resources they need, enabling them to enjoy the whole camp experience as much as the campers.
Qualified instructors who not only lead specialist adventure activities but also provide outstanding role modelling as they interact with your students.
All activities at Coolamatong have been risk-assessed and are run by professional staff, trained in their area of expertise... ensuring that your campers have a great experience, and that safety is always first.
It is the best camp I have been on in 28 years of teaching. I would recommend it to anyone.Teacher, North Melbourne Primary School
Our son Jack was at camp Coola last week and had THE BEST CAMP EVER!! He's told us many wonderful stories about his adventures (and mis adventures) and loved every minute of it!A Mother
The boat trip was really super fun, it was really cold but I loved playing fox holes and making the sand castles and jumping off that hill of sand... especially on the way back seeing those two dolphins swim by! I got really tired doing all the fun things you set up for us and I loved every day of it! Thanks!A Camper
