Camp Rules . . .



In order for everyone to enjoy a safe holiday at our camp, it is necessary to have a few rules.

Fires: For safety reasons these are not permitted, as per Waitaki District Council regulations. Campers should all have their own fire extinguishers in case of fire. The Fire Evacuation area for all campers in the camp is the paddock known as the airstrip located beside the ablution block and as indicated by the fire evacuation sign. To raise the alarm in the event of fire, sound a car horn continuously.
