It was encouraging to see how many students were in awe of nature, some were in disbelief that the lake could be so beautiful and also real. They could not get enough of the lake. Even our less confident students had no problems standing up on the paddle boards.

Our cabin had an amazing view of the lake, it was also very peaceful. The kayaks and paddle boards for rent were a great touch. Kids enjoyed the table tennis and basketball court. Cabin was well-equipped and deck was a good size. Staff super friendly and helpful.


I recently ran a kids camp at Camp Elim for a Not for profit organisation and all I can say is wow ! What an amazing weekend we had. 

The meals were the best I’ve ever had on a camp (not one complaint from any of the kids – which I’ve never seen before). The accommodation was great and allowed the perfect number of kids and leaders in each cabin. The activities on offer were perfect and suitable for a mix of age groups. The water front was suitable for the younger kids too, with the depth being around waist height for little kids (no sudden drop-offs). Deb and Brayden were very helpful and accommodating in the kitchen, preparing and cooking us amazing meals on time, ensuring that we kept on schedule with our program. Bailey and Rodney ran the activities which were the high tower, giant swing and water activities. They were both very friendly to the kids and gave clear and concise safety briefs on each activity, which made it easy for the kids to understand and follow. All the equipment was safe and helmets and harnesses were easily adjustable to fit all shapes and sizes. We were also able to use their hall to set up arts and crafts, run a movie night and end of camp presentation using their installed projector which was easy to set up and practical. Honestly, I cannot speak highly enough of this place. I will definitely take my family here. The no alcohol policy is an extra bonus, allowing families to spend time together without any hassles. Thank-you Camp Elim, see you soon.
