Following the success of the 2016 camp, HFACT is holding another community camp in April 2019.

Dates and Times

The camp will be held over three days, from the evening of Friday 5th April to the afternoon of Sunday 7th April. The weekend is the last weekend prior to the ACT Term 1 2019 school holidays.

Venue

The 2019 venue is Warrambui Retreat and Conference Centre, located in a quiet rural setting near Murrumbateman NSW. It’s a drive of about 40 minutes from the centre of Canberra. Warrambui has conference facilities, accommodation and a range of outdoor facilities.

The camp will include accommodation for two nights and all meals from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch.
Accommodation is in varying size rooms with en-suite facilities. Most rooms have two single beds plus two bunk beds, accommodating up to six people in total. There are a few rooms with two single beds that accommodate two people and a few rooms with disabled access that accommodate three people.
