Torbay Beach Camp 2023 (Members Only)


Torbay Beach Camp at Camp Kennedy was the Club's premier annual event on the south coast west of Albany (http://www.campkennedy.com) and we are bringing it back again!


It is an absolute beachfront holiday. Past activities at the camp have included Talent show Evening, walks, swimming, canoeing, boogie boarding, fishing, coffee drinking at local cafe, etc. As in previous years, the site is deemed alcohol and smoking free.


Families stay in separate 'hut'. The huts have a bed base and mattress but little else – they are really basic. You will have the use of the shared Outdoor kitchen/BBQ area, dish washing area with running water, fridge & freezers and the ablution blocks. There is also a fee-paying washing machine and clothe lines for laundry. Dining hall has tables and benches. Due to COVID restriction, you will need to provide your own cooking pots and serving plates and utensils.


For 2023, the indicative prices are:

  • Dorms is $20/n for Adult and $15/n for Children.
  • Camping at unpowered site is $14/n for Adult and $12/n for Children.
  • Powered site is $17/n for Adult and $14/n for Children. There are only two sites.
  • Please book directly with Camp Kennedy: Admin@campkennedy.org
  • Then register your intention here with WAFBC so we know who is going.
***Interested families needs to book directly with the Camp Manager,

please book early to avoid disappointment! ***


The accommodation will be given on a first come first serve basis. Unlike previous years, we no longer have exclusive use of the entire camp ground.


Check-in time is 3.00pm and check-out time is 11.00am.


Each family may be given a cleaning rooster for cleaning bathroom, dining hall etc.
