History

"(The report from the four men from Scripture Union) was in the affirmative and this really set the ball rolling in the right direction. It became clear to us that this special area of land almost surrounded by lake and inlet, which had come into our possession, must be regarded as a Divine Trust and we are being called upon to use it for the physical, social and spiritual welfare of young people under the supervision of Christian organisations."

Camp Coolamatong Lake Camp was purchased in 1953 and Camp Coolamatong Farm Camp was purchased in 1973. The name "Coolamatong" is understood to be an aboriginal word meaning "water beside a hill".
