Our camp has been developed to cater for a wide variety of groups, including Churches, Youth Groups, Schools and other Community groups. It is also used for seminars, retreats and special functions.
Our sleeping accommodation is essentially under one roof which provides easy and secure supervision. Other facilities include a separate hall and gymnasium, providing many options for indoor sports and other activities including a climbing wall.
Camp Raglan has residential cooks who provide excellent meals, and with prior arrangements, special dietary needs can be catered for.
If you have never been to Camp Raglan, we warmly invite you to come and view our facility. We aim to provide a service and facility that will enrich and enhance your camping time.
We look forward to sharing our camp with you soon.
