Staff picks - things that we are loving right now...

Raft Building

The ultimate in adventure learning

Quickly becoming a Sunnystones favourite - raft building is a classic activity that involves teamwork, problem solving, spatial thinking and practical building skills. This activity is undertaken near the canoeing at our lake, which is specially designed for shallow entry and exit, and access around the entirety of the lake ensuring an extremely safe environment. Plus, it's heaps of fun and a real challenge of who's raft will float!



The true outdoor experience at camp

A great option for your next school camp is to have a camp out! Half the group stays in the cabins the first night, half stay out in tents -then swap over for the next night!  

Students can learn about the joys of camping, and enjoy sitting around the campfire talking about camp so far and creating brilliant memories.

This is a great introduction to camping for students, and our camping area near the large campfire area is just perfect.

The Walk In

A super way to
start camp

'The Walk In' is a great initiative, where students and staff are dropped off at the Long Forest Nature Conservation Reserve where Sunnystones staff meet them and walk through the nature reserve, ending at Camp Sunnystones - which is right on the border. Oh and don't forget the creek crossing!  The creek is pretty low at the moment, which means a lot of great rock formations are on show!
