The Portsea Camp

Activities

Where do we begin? Let our tour around the camp start outdoors. Perhaps try the Giant Swing (at just under 20 meters it’s sure to impress but we make sure you choose how high you go), try our flying fox, get vertical on the high ropes course or stay closer to ground with our team building and initiatives games, complete with Spiders Web, TP shuffle, Nitro cross (and many more options). Perhaps grab a ball and play basketball or netball on the courts or head for the oval to use the cricket pitch or play football, soccer or T-ball. Tug of war is always popular and we have a number of home-grown games to wear children out before bed! Orienteering, earth ball games, initiative activities, you name it, we probably have it.

Feeling a little energetic? Head off site for a quick trip to Point Nepean National Park or take a beach walk straight off the camp’s oval. Did we mention the beach? It’s one of Victoria’s best. Try canoeing using our safe sit-on-tops, swim or snorkel (children appreciate our upper body wetsuit floatation vest), or walk to the Portsea Pier to try your hand at fishing.

After dark take in a movie on our huge screen or enjoy the best disco in town in our well equipped main hall.

Feeling exhausted? Just sit on one of the verandas and watch the passing ships and ferries, look out for the dolphins enjoy gazing up the Bay to the city lights and contemplate how much you’d love to stay forever.
