BORAMBOLA.

THE SIMPLE LIFE AND SERIOUS FUN.

Riverina Murray

Just a 25-minute drive from Wagga Wagga, you’ll find Borambola Sport and Recreation Centre on the banks of Tarcutta Creek, nestled in the heart of farming country. Don’t be fooled by the peaceful surroundings and sweeping plains of gumtrees and natives you might see bounding across your path – there’s a tonne of fun to be had here.

 

Whether you’re a thrill seeker looking to have a go on our ropes course, have a zip around our BMX track or take advantage of our 25 metre pool or tennis courts, we have plenty of options to make your camp great. We also cater for nature lovers, with amazing natural Australian landscape surrounding the centre.

 

 

If you’re looking for a camp experience that offers a home away from home and equal parts relaxation and excitement, go no further than the country idylls of Borambola.

ACCOMODATION AND MEALS

We’ve got room at Borambola for 160 students with dorm style accommodation for students and private rooms just adjacent for teachers.

Schools catered accommodation

All our school accommodation is fully catered, also offering wheelchair accessibility in multiple rooms. Our catered accommodation is also available for booking by sporting groups, community groups or families.

Our meals

The dining hall is the beating heart of our centre. The scene of healthy and nutritious daily meals, rowdy chatter and satisfied faces. We know your students will love our meals, but so will their parents. Our catering team understand what needs to be done with allergies and special diets, and lovingly prepare all our meals to the highest standards. Students are encouraged to try new foods as part of the camp experience with the understanding there will be some fussy eaters. Our camp experts work with you to meet these needs.

 

To contribute a positive camp community, students may be involved in helping with kitchen duties such as serving food, washing up and ensuring the dining area is clean at the end of meals.

 

Teachers will love our food too, with specially prepared meal options and our camp experts organising and managing students during meal times. This provides an opportunity for teachers to have a well-deserved break and enjoy their meals as a group with teachers sat separately.

“We really see kids here at camp who
excel here rather than in the classroom. These are kids who aren’t as academic, and kids who are really shy come out of their shells and thrive. I was
watching a child who normally doesn’t have a go at new things, suddenly ready to go for the next activity. And there they were first in the line.”

– Jane, teacher, Melrose Public School
