Last Updated: Friday 7 January 2022

As we continue to see a high number of COVID cases in the community, our camps are currently facing staff shortages due to staff isolating at home to comply with household close contact guidelines.

It’s important to note that the health and safety of our staff, guests and community is our top priority.

While we will try to ensure most services remain available, due to the escalating case numbers, our operating programs and services may be affected in some way over the coming weeks.

If you have an upcoming booking that is effected we will be in touch with you, even if it is at short notice, to advise you and make alternative arrangements.

If we have any other changes to operations, our social media page will be updated to inform customers of these.

Please check the individual camp site’s Facebook page or call the camp direct before your visit.

Phillip Island Coastal Discovery Camp

Phillip Island Coastal Discovery Camp is currently preparing for a major redevelopment. The new facility will include a range of modern accommodation and accessible features. We intend to provide inclusive access to this unique coastal area for groups and people of all abilities.

In the interim, the existing facility is not offering accommodation services and community programs.

We will keep you updated on the progress of this as it happens. 


We understand school and community groups may have heightened concerns about the safety of attending our camps even as COVID-19 restrictions ease.

Please be assured, the health, safety and wellbeing of guests and staff remains our number one priority.

We are taking every precaution recommended by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and are continually reviewing our own health and safety procedures to ensure they meet current guidelines.

Our Camps Managers have developed COVID safety plans specific to their sites. These plans will be adapted to the needs of each group who attend our camps in Term 4 2020.

We will take this approach forward into future terms as Victoria continues its journey towards COVID normal.
