Torbay Camp (January)

 

 

Torbay is an annual Club event held at Camp Kennedy (Torbay) on the south coast west of Albany (http://www.albanybaptist.com.au/camp-kennedy.html ). Families rent and stay in separate huts and share a large hall, kitchen, shower/toilet and dining facilities. If there is enough of us, and there usually is, the Family Bushwalkers, take over the camp to exclusion of others.  It is a special absolute beachfront holiday in the last week of the school holidays. Past activities at the camp have included Concert Evening, Quiz Night, walk, swimming, canoeing, boogie boarding, fishing, mountain biking, coffee drinking at local cafe, etc.  As in previous years, the site is deemed alcohol and smoking free ...

 Indicative costs are: $16.00 per person per night, $10.00 per 4 yrs-15 yrs per night, 3 yrs and under free.  The kitchen and cool room are available to us at an additional cost of $75 day.  This cost is spread over the group and equates to $5-10 per family per day flat rate whether you are camping/hutting or even if you don’t use the facility).  Check-in time is 3.00pm and check-out time is 11.00am.

 

There are between 2 and 11 beds in each hut and we allocate one family per hut.  The huts have a bed base and mattress but little else – they are basic.  Shared kitchen has everything including plates, cutlery, pots, pans, stoves, fridges – but not T towels and washing-up liquid.  Dining hall has tables and benches.  There is a massive undercover BBQ.  We are expected to clean-up during our stay including the communal showers and toilets.
