Our Philosophy

At Kinglake Forest Adventures Camp we take pride in offering camp experiences as they should be in this day and age. We deliver a blend of the fun classic camp that will become etched in childhood memories with contemporary expectations of youth development needs.

The Core: Outcome Oriented Programs and Food.

It may seem counter-intuitive that such core elements as the program and the food is how KFAC chooses to differentiate ourselves – but we do.

We have an exceptional natural surround and beautiful new buildings where great food and a warm hosting culture set the platform for fantastic staff to deliver unique programs.

We understand the value of documenting and adhering to standards in relation to our facilities and the operation of activities. We hold camp accreditation with the national standard ATAP.

We research, learn and train, train, train, particularly on the soft skills processes. At KFAC, each group has their own facilitator from the beginning to the very end of their experience – this is by far the best approach for achieving outcomes. In ALL programs we focus on making the experience physically and emotionally safe e.g. no bullying, no undue peer pressures.

You will see from our testimonials that we have a very strong track record of delivering great camp experiences – for students and teachers and organisations alike. You will also notice in these testimonials that KFAC food is acclaimed!

We have a great team, with tremendous experience, who have a passion for people and the outdoors! We are very proud of what we achieve with each and every camp.

Our Staff

Our staff go through a rigorous application and onboarding process so we can be assured that our employees are the very best to deliver our camp programs. In fact many of the KFAC program staff have acquired university level teaching and outdoor recreation qualifications with additional training in a variety of well-being and personal development processes. Our expectation of this knowledge and experience is the very reason why the average age of our staff is higher than other camp operators.

Each of our camp programs and visiting groups is allocated a dedicated facilitator to guide them throughout their camp experience from infancy right through to completion. This way our facilitators have the time to create meaningful professional relationships with staff and students so they can adapt the program requirements accordingly to successfully deliver both individual and group outcomes.

A Word About Safety

While many of our experiences are considered risky, we put common sense and safety before all else and accept no compromises. In fact, safety is so important to us that Kinglake Forest Adventures Camp is accredited for camp and adventure activities by the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program. We are proud of our training and experience and we strictly follow our standard operating procedures and emergency management procedures to ensure our guests safety.
