    Kokako Lodge Staff were very professional and very patient with our more challenging students. The safety and programme delivery were excellent. No worries with any activities. There was a good mixture of very challenging activities with chilled out ones. Overall, very happy, the students were engaged and got a lot out of it. They won’t stop going on about camp for a while.

    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.

    The staff and systems in place at that facility are amazing. Real friendly and professional that have a wide range of knowledge and abilities. Cannot talk any more highly about them. Will be returning next year. The programme is such an amazing way for students to achieve NCEA level 2 Credits.

    Southern Cross Campus

    In February 20 of our year 13 leaders attended Kokako lodge for 3 days in a combined school and Lodge Leadership Development programme. As a result of this initiative these young people are effectively contributing in an outstanding way to our learning environment. We have made this an annual booking as we are delighted with the facilities, the dedication to safety and the professional staff at Kokako.

  • 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.

    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.
