It was cool seeing all the different students stepping up as all the activities were a range of levels of challenge and the staff encouraged our programme goals of motivation, communication and self-management.
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.
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.
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!
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.
All staff were friendly and approachable. They were knowledgeable and did a fantastic job. We were very pleased. The camp was very well planned and thought out. We had no concerns. The team building games, rock climbing and archery were highlights. Well run programme, making it stress free for teachers and parent helpers.
