“We have definitely not ever had such success in our youth camps as we have seen in the last few years with you guys at Orama, it is definitely the highlight of the year for everyone.”

Summer camps

If you’re looking for an outstanding holiday to refresh you and your family, don’t miss our annual seven-day summer camps.
Featuring inspiring speakers from New Zealand or overseas, our camps allow families and church groups to spend quality time together – where the meals and hard work is done for you. We provide a safe environment, a fun-filled creative programme for kids, meetings, movies, and plenty of free time to enjoy beach walks, tramping, kayaking, fishing and boating.

Many people find our camps a profound, life-changing experience – a chance to reconnect with each other and with God, in a fresh way.

Accommodation:  We have a wide range of options from modern to rustic, to suit your needs and budget.

Casual accommodation
