Surge Winter Camp – for Teenagers (High Schoolers)

Coming up Queens Birthday weekend 1st – 4th June, a chance for high schoolers to hang out together and try some new activities.

Camps bring the most amazing memories that often last a lifetime. We’re really trying to keep the cost of camp to a minimum so it’s not a barrier to anyone attending, but please chat to us if it’s still too much. It is estimated that the actual cost per attendee is $280 without funding, but with some fundraising we’ve     reduced it to just $100 each!
