Lake Camp

Our Lake Camp is ideally located for the complete outdoor camping experience.

Set on 10 acres of coastal bushland and with direct access to the Gippsland Lakes, it is the perfect base for exploring these stunning waterways and national parks.

Activities

Lake Camp provides tailor made outdoor education programs. All activities are run by qualified Camp Coolamatong Staff. There are activities for everyone, regardless of age or skill level. Specific activities can also be modified for suitability to individual groups. While not all activities are appropriate for all age groups, experienced Coolamatong staff can suggest challenges, games and activities to engage and motivate your students.

Each camp has a theme. This theme is chosen by the school and is built on throughout the program during the activities and theme sessions.
