Skills & Team Building

Learning a new skill helps students to develop active listening, initiative and self-confidence. The following activities are great for team building during school camps. There are so many new skills to be learned here: from archery and fencing to horse riding, canoeing, ice-skating, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, circus skills and many other team building experiences.

Onsite Activities


Learning archery is not simply about hitting the bull’s eye. Students learn discipline, mental focus, patience and persistence. Standing side by side with their classmates, students also learn to play by the rules and work as a team.


Fencing is both a physical and a mental sport. Under the guidance of the Coffs Harbour Sword Club students get a good work out, but they also learn to think strategically, stay focused and respond quickly. Classes can be tailored for any age group.


Get out on the beautiful Bonville Creek for a paddle. Our Activities Team will teach students paddling and canoeing skills before we set out. Once on the water they have plenty of games based activities to keep things interesting.

Circus Skills

This isn’t just clowning around. Mastering circus skills requires balance, flexibility, trust and mental strength. (Of course it’s a lot of fun too!)

Commando Course

Challenge your students with our tough obstacle course, modeled on the armed forces commando courses. You’d be surprised how bonding a physical challenge and a lot of mud can be!

Inner Limits

Our Activities Team has designed this series of games and challenges to allow students to explore their own inner limits, learn to trust others and work as a team.

Ladder Logs

Students climb our Ladder Logs knowing that their classmates are behind them for support. A good exercise to build trust and courage.

Man Vs Wild

In the wilds surrounding our 30-acre property, students learn about the great outdoors and how to survive in the bush. Skills include fire lighting, lean-too building and more.

Team Rescue

Your plane has crash landed in a crocodile infested swamp. Your team has survived but one member is severely injured and needs urgent medical attention. With only a stretcher, ropes, planks and a multitude of obstacles between you and safety, can your team get out alive and save your team member!

Time Crisis

Students must work together to find hidden keys and solve cryptic clues to solve the problem.  But can they do it in time?

Offsite Activities

Ice Skating

Step into the magical and icy world of the Big banana’s Ice Skating rink where you can cut up the ice or glide leisurely around and enjoy.


The experienced coaches at Solitary Islands Surf School have decades of surf coaching experience and provide a supportive environment to help students master the beautiful Coffs Coast waves.

White Water Rafting

Take students on a unique river adventure. Raft the white water and grade 3-5 rapids of the Upper Nymboida River, past lush rainforests, spectacular gorges, and tranquil pools.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding

SUP is the “it” water sport and a great way to develop balance and core strength. The professionals at Solitary Islands Surf School will teach students all the basics of stand up paddling.

Surf Rafting

Surf Rafting is the extremely fun art of white water rafting in the surfing waves. Highly trained and experienced professionals teach students rafting skills and keep them safe.

Happy Visitors

Great staff, great variety of activities. They were well run and organised. Great food.

The instructors were great – clear and enthusiastic and on top of behaviour.

Rachel Davies – Pacific Valley Christian School

I recently had the pleasure to attend the Coffs Adventure Centre with my school for a few days.  I came as an assistant but personally had the most rewarding few days.  I tried things I never would have, stepped out of my comfort zone and achieved things I didn’t think were possible.  By doing this it encouraged the children to push themselves that little bit further and I got the privilege to witness the children I didn’t think would involve themselves in activities just shine. To see them so happy and working as a team was also very rewarding.  The staff were all so fantastic and enthusiastic which also made our stay that much more enjoyable.  Thank you for the experience.


It was the first time I had worked with this venue and the ease / support from the bookings team was fantastic. Previous classes from our school had been to this camp before and I had very positive feedback about all aspects of the venue.

Lisa Kenniff – Hillvue Public School

Thanks again for all your wonderful support and help with this year’s camp. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend the centre to other schools.

Sharon Ryan – Lismore Heights Public School
