Throughout each year, thousands of school students visit Teen Ranch. Ranging in age from year 3 to year 12, students who come are given an exciting, challenging, and safe adventure experience whilst on school camp with us. Each camp or excursion is specifically tailored to individual groups for a unique experience.
We have schools visit us from the local Camden area, from all over the Sydney region, and even occasionally from some regional areas of NSW. No matter where they call home, everyone is treated to a great time of creating new memories whilst enjoying our beautiful site.
School Excursion Options
We provide a tailored programme for a day excursion to Teen Ranch. This option allows for 2 or 3 activity sessions, depending on how long you wish to stay, with a delicious lunch and morning/afternoon tea provided. Some schools choose to extend their stay to include dinner and after dinner experiences.
For some students a single night away from home is a significant challenge. We offer an overnight camping experience which includes 4 activity sessions over the two days, all meals provided and an evening experience which could include a campfire or rousing group games.
By far our most popular experience is the 3-day (2 night) camp experience. Over three days campers will enjoy multiple adventurous activity sessions, two nights of shared memories with their peers and all meals provided.
Teen Ranch is happy to offer camps for the length of time which is suitable for your group. If you would like to stay for a longer period, experience a greater variety of activities or would like a more flexible programme for your visit, please contact the office to discuss options.

Community and Youth Groups are invited to make use of our site and facilities for weekend camps throughout the year. With more flexibility in the running of these camps, including the potential for including group facilitated sessions amongst the Teen Ranch specialist activities, or complete autonomy in the programme, our weekend camps are a popular alternative for groups looking for a stimulating retreat experience.
Weekend camps are all fully catered by our friendly kitchen team.
