  • Betsy
    Saint Mary Mackillop Catholic School

    The instructors were engaging and friendly. Our students enjoyed working with you all! Very safety focused - instructors were often checking in on student’s safety gear and surroundings. The activities and instructors were the highlights of the programme. Thank you all for an awesome time, your flexibility and willingness to cater to our needs has been excellent!

  • Cecilia Airey
    McAuley Girls High School,

    The staff rostered for this camp were outstanding. The quality of instructions, discussions initiated by the instructors, relevance to assessment were all at a very high standard. This group of instructors are highly experienced and have all developed a great rapport with our girls. All instructors have been very accommodating and have taken the assessment discussions very seriously. This is by far the best group of outdoor instructors I have come across in the many years of Kokako experience. Having a large number of female instructors has also been positive bonus for our girls.

    Westminster Christian School

    I absolutely loved my time at this camp! The scenery was stunning and I loved how it was so close to a beautiful waterfall. The instructors were awesome. They taught us how to make a raft, rescue someone hurt, climb all sorts of things and always believed we could do it. Thank you Kokako lodge for this amazing camp.

  • Noma Koke Aanauatasi

    Our church and youth members were all happy at your place compare to other places we have camp before. They commented about how clean the toilets are, the wideness of the beds and the thickness of the mattresses they were so comfortable. The fresh air from the trees around and they love their walks in the mornings and spare times. But for us the chefs, we love everything in the kitchen so handy. So on behalf of our church and youth I would like to say thank you very much for having us stay at your place. We are very much appreciated everything your team had done for us.

    We'd like to thank you and the team for providing us with such a great programme on camp. The facilities and environment were all that we'd hoped for and our students took away amazing memories for life. We found that staff were professional at all times and only too happy to help. Our students made great connections with the instructors and enjoyed all of the experiences they had. We won't be doing a camp next year. But will certainly be in contact again, to plan another event some day. Thanks again for your hard work and organisation.

    Kokako Lodge Instructors are very professional and having familiar faces each time we go is very helpful. There is clear communication on expectations throughout the day and a variety of activities. We loved it. Awesome experience.
