School Camp

With a range of accommodation, catering facilities and countless activities, Mountain Valley Adventure Lodge & Camping Ground, Hawkes Bay is a one-stop shop for the perfect school camp & outings. We have hosted many very successful camps & school groups (including international) since 2011 with classes ranging from years 5-13.

The prices we offer for school camps and outings are some of the lowest, if not the lowest prices you’ll find for the level of professional service and support you receive. Our facilities offer an array of comfortable sleeping quarters, newly renovated ablution blocks, a kitchen for camp use, unlimited outdoor space including a sports field, conference room, lounge, restaurant and bar.

We are very flexible in the amount of support we can offer you. We can be fully involved in your visit from developing a programme; running all activities; catering breakfast, lunch and dinner; and working out logistics or we can step back and let you take the reins; only stepping in to run the activities where our qualified guides are imperative.
