Camping Programs

IMGP0024 (1024x678)The Hawkesbury is well known for its ancient geography and its diverse and unique mix of landscapes.

A visit to the centre will leave you with lifelong memories of the beautiful scenery, the 1878 school setting, the Hawkesbury river and surrounding forests and food that you could eat straight from the garden.

Brewongle offers 2 or 3 day camping programs to both primary and secondary students. Students will experience a unique blend of environmental, historical and cultural programs that utilise the diverse attractions, quality facilities and natural habitats of the surrounding Hawkesbury region.

Brewongle can cater for 48 students who are accommodated in 4 x A-frame huts. By utilising our tents we can cater for a further 8 students.
Teachers and parents stay in our purpose built and very comfortable teacher accommodation!

You can choose for us to supply all meals and prepare the food for your staff to cook by utilising the BBQ and the kitchen facilities, otherwise you may choose to do the shopping, preparation and cooking yourself.

Evening activities can include a campfire (weather permitting), a wildlife presentation and spotlighting.
