    We were so excited to have Camp Camp return for 2021, and while the event we had planned can't go ahead we will still be doing a lite virtual event—which will still bring together the social, fitness, and fun aspects of Camp Camp.

    Camp Camp 2021 - Just Around The Glitterbend (ONLINE)

    When : 10:00am Saturday 25 September, 2021

    Where : 5km from your house and online

    Theme : Scout Camp

    Activities :

    Lots! The Camp Camp organising team have put together a full day program of activities that will be done in crews, all of which can be done within your 5km. The program will start with a social brunch in the morning where you'll be put into crews and given your list of daily activities and how to score points. You'll have the day to complete these in your crews and then in the afternoon we'll come back together online for some fitness and fun interactive activities. The days fun ends with an evening dinner, drinks, and games—plus the presentation of the winning crews. 


    You can choose to participate in every activity or just a few, completely up to you—there is something for everyone.


    Register for this event and registrants will be sent more details about the activities and a sign up sheet to let us know what you'd like to participate in. We're just putting the finishing touches on the program and it'll be out soon.
