At Scouts we believe in the value of getting young people out of the classroom and into the great outdoors.

Three fantastic locations: Cataract Activity Centre (Appin), Baden-Powell Activity Centre (Pennant Hills), Alpine Activity Centre (Jindabyne)

We believe that nothing prepares students for real-life like the real world. We offer a broad range of challenging, hands-on experiences that deliver lessons and learnings with long term benefits such as teamwork, communication, leadership, creative thinking, decision making, problem-solving, resilience and trust.

Our fantastic activity day and overnight camp programs give students a safe environment to experience new adventures, build confidence and form friendships.

Complete with adventurous activities, spacious lodges and great catering options, we’ll work closely with you to tailor an activity day or overnight camp experience to suit your school’s curriculum needs.

Cataract Activity Centre

Alpine Activity Centre




With three locations, there is something for everyone at the Scouts NSW Activity Centres. Whether you are looking for team building, passive activities, or adrenaline-packed adventures, our locations have a variety of programs to suit all needs and ages.

We can accommodate small and large school groups from Kindergarten through to Year 12, allowing students to immerse themselves in outdoor adventurous activities.

Outdoor activities are fully customisable in consultation with our bookings team. We can formulate an activity program to achieve your desired outcomes – whether it is to challenge older students with their teamwork skills or to build trust and friendship between new Year 7 students.

Pick the perfect team-building and adventurous activities from our extensive list. All activities are led by our highly trained and qualified staff, each experienced in outdoor skills.

Whatever activities you choose, you’ll have plenty of space to organise your own games in the evenings, including a weather-dependent campfire!


We have a range of accommodation choices to suit your school camp. Choose from setting up camp the traditional way by pitching a tent, complete with toilets and hot water showers. Or, you can retreat to comfortable air-conditioned lodges.


Add catering to your school visit and enjoy wholesome, delicious and nutritious meals served from our on-site canteen. Our professional caterers can cater to different food allergies and intolerances.

Meeting Spaces

We also have meeting spaces! Complete with AV equipment and collaborative spaces. With a range of options, you can include indoor education and activities as part of your school activity day or camp.

Book a school camp or excursion you and your students will enjoy. Talk with our friendly staff about what you are looking to achieve during your next school activity day or overnight camp, and let us work with you to make it possible!
