School Camp at Tōtara Springs

School camp is one of the most memorable parts of growing up. Getting out of school to experience challenges they never face in daily life will grow your kids' confidence, teamwork, and relationships in ways that aren't possible inside the classroom. Tōtara Springs is the perfect place to hold your next school camp. Our experienced staff will help facilitate a camp that your students will remember for years to come.

Tōtara Springs is a large venue that can cater to multiple groups simultaneously. Therefore, it is unlikely that you will be the only school on-site during your stay. We will, however, work to ensure that your visit is fun, challenging, and enjoyable.

Whether it is developing leadership and communication skills or pushing themselves to new levels, your students will have an awesome experience that they will remember for a very long time!
