Important: If you intend to use outside providers for any programs or activities approval must be first obtained by the camp manager.

Supervised areas

Abseil tower and ropes course

The purpose-built 10 metre abseil tower hosts one of our most frequently participated programs – abseiling. The 70 degree vertical slope also caters for wheelchair abseiling, while one side of the tower can be used as an overhang. The Leap of Faith and high ropes course are within the same area of the centre.

Flying fox

Across the open space area of the centre is the 90 metre flying fox. Please be wary of other groups who may be participating in this program. 

Low ropes course

Participating in activities in the low ropes course requires a department leader.
Important: You must advise the centre of your intention to use any of the non-supervised areas prior to your stay as priority is given to booked programs.

Non-supervised areas

Basketball court

Guests are able to use the basketball court for unstructured play outside program times. This is a shared facility, so if two or more groups are onsite we ask you to share usage of the court. The basketball court is fully floodlit for use after dark.

Swimming pool

The 12 metre swimming pool is home to our pool games program. It can also be used outside program times. Please contact centre management if you wish to schedule times to use the pool exclusively, as priority is given to pool programs at all times. Leaders and supervisors must ensure the pool is adequately supervised at all times. We recommend the hire of an Aquatic Supervisor (who holds both an Aquatic Rescue Certificate (ARQ) and Senior First Aid) to supervise children and weak swimmers in the pool. If supplying Department of Education staff for pool supervision, it's essential they have a current Bronze Medallion or ARQ. All school aged children require supervision with a ratio of 1:32.

Swan River

The Swan River is approximately 170 metres from the centre and hosts our paddling and raft building programs. The natural sandbar allows participants to venture a fair distance from the shore and still be in a safe and accessible environment. Dolphins are regularly seen during our raft building and paddling programs. East along the river is home to the Alfred Cove Marine Park, holding various attractions.

Grassed open space

In between the main office and dormitory areas is a large open space area perfect for unstructured play or group games. This open parkland is great for kicking the football or a game of cricket. Please be aware that at certain times of the day some of our programs may be running, therefore, access to these areas may not be possible as they will receive preference.

Point Walter grounds

Free play equipment

Point Walter offers a wide range of free play equipment. Tennis racquets, a cricket set, soccer balls, footballs, volleyballs and basketballs can be borrowed from the centre. Please discuss your requirements with centre staff when organising and booking your stay.
