Year 5 & 6 Camp 2024

2024 Piwakawaka Team - Year 5 & 6 Camp - One Big Adventure - Carey Park

Wednesday 3rd July - Friday 5th July 2024

We are excited to share that the 2024 Year 5 and 6 camp will be at One Big Adventure at Carey Park. We did a day camp there in 2022 and Mrs Farley has been to this venue a number of times with a previous school. It’s in a beautiful setting and offers great Education Outside The Classroom (EOTC) experiences. You can see more at

About The Venue

The camp has been booked to cater for the five classes in the Piwakawaka Team to attend together and will run from Wednesday 3rd - Friday 5th July.

The venue has plenty of room to accommodate this number of students and adults. We are really excited to have all of our Piwakawaka Learning Community going to camp together.

This will be a winter camp. One Big Adventure at Carey Park is well and truly set up for camps at any time of the year. One of the reasons for going back to this venue is that they have an exciting programme that runs very well, even in wet weather. We know how unpredictable Auckland weather is at any time of year.  

There are covered walkways around the cabins, dining area and gym, comfortable cabins with heating in every room, washing machines and dryers, if needed.
