about the camp
“Boys to the Bush” is a camp designed to give boys the opportunity to experience life in the “Bush.”
The camps are based on farms near Howlong, Lake Cargelligo, Forbes and Tallangatta.
The boys have the choice of sleeping in the self-contained unit, tent, shed or under the stars (weather permitting).
Beds, swags, mattresses, sleeping bags and pillows are provided.
Overnight camps may be organised at other locations (details of each camp will be communicated prior to camp).
The camp is run by:
Adam DeMamiel (Director & Co-Founder) (Bach. Ed. Primary, Special Education)
Richard Leahy (Director & Co Founder) (Bach. Commerce & Marketing, Dip. Ed.), and
Tim Sanson (Director & Co-Founder) (Bach. Ed. Human Movement)
All camp staff have updated Working With Children Checks, First Aid, Resuscitation and Anaphylaxis Training.
The 4-day camp gives a small group of boys the opportunity to do a variety of tasks/activities that are unique to living in the country.
Our core camp values are Engagement, Resilience & Community.
