The place for your next adventure camp

Looking for a location for your next school camp, group or adventure camp. Have a look at what Finlay Park has to offer. Set on the shores of the Lake Karapiro  Finlay Park was converted from farmland to a permanent camp site in 1946. Since then the facilities have been expanded to have accommodation for approx 200 campers. A number of other meeting areas, and indoor activity areas are available.  There are activities available for all skill and age groups either  on  or off the water. Of course fully trained staff are available to supervise all the adventure activities. The outdoor activities aim to provide an opportunity for all campers to be challenged at each individuals level and provide each child the opportunity to succeed at challenges presented to them.

Thanks, we had an amazing camp

The kids and adults were all really complimentary, and were keen to come again. The activities were really well supervised and the staff really helpful and easy to contact. The facilities were great, the kitchen had everything we needed, and when something wasn’t working (gas) it was fixed promptly.

Excellent value for money

For the cost of the camp, I thought it was excellent value for money. Erin was relaxed and completely approachable.
The glow worms were excellent and the guides really knowledgeable. Having the chapel was great for our school as well.

The design and layout is superb

We had a fantastic time at the village, we could easily have stayed one more night. The design and layout is superb, we all loved the swimming pool, the easy access to the lake and having our own jetty for the weekend. Mathew did a stellar job of looking after us, and we would love the opportunity to come back again:-)
