All of our meals are cooked on-site with the menu varying depending on the course duration, we cater for all dietary requirements including allergies and religious beliefs.

In addition to their main meals students will also be given snacks throughout the day. There is always access to clean drinking water both at camp and all activity locations. Students are encouraged to use their own personal water bottle throughout their stay. In the evenings they’ll be able to enjoy hot chocolate and marshmallows around the camp fire.

Security & Overnight Routine

Our camps are exclusive to you! At no time will you share your tented village area or facilities with another group. With a surrounding fence line and lockable gate, teachers and trip leaders can rest assured that their students are in a safe and enjoyable environment. So sit back, relax and enjoy a worry free camp village setting!

During camp introductions, students are made aware of the overnight routine and they will be reminded of this every evening just prior to bedtime. Should they wake up and want to leave their tent, they must:

  • Wake up a friend and walk with them using a flashlight
  • Either head straight to the toilet which is lit up for ease and security
  • Or head to the main centre tipi which is lit up for ease and security where a minimum of two Cumulus Camp staff members will be available
