Testimonials

For some of our groups, Hunua Falls Camp is a totally new experience. Others have been coming for years. Schools, businesses, families and church groups are all attracted to the peaceful environment, Hunua Falls and forest park adventures. They also like having the freedom to organise things like catering and onsite activities the way they choose.

Thanks for your email - the weather sure turned it on for us! The venue was well presented and we were really happy with how easy it was to get in and set up. Some feedback I would give:
1. The grounds looked great - your custodians are doing a fantastic job, especially down in the woods
2. Graham is good - works very hard around the grounds and then leaves you to your own devices. Great, considering we paid $6K for the three days.

Hunua Easter Camp was a really enjoyable long weekend away. We had a great group of young people attend this year who all shared in their feedback forms that they had a fun camp experience. We had some lovely weather which allowed us to utilize all the spaces at Hunua Falls Camp which was excellent. It was nice to walk through the forest and check out the falls on Sunday afternoon too. My parents were the cooks again this year and enjoyed their experience - it is always nice to get out of the main suburbs in Auckland! The custodians are brilliant, very helpful when we need them and very easy to communicate with. Thanks again for having us, we all had a great time!

Dear Camp Hunua
I really like the campsite it was awesome. I love going on confidence course because there is one obstecal. It was really fun when you have to climb all the way up to the top then jump all the way down. The dorms a really nice because the beds a comfe and your friends can stay with you. The best thing was playing spotlight in the bush it was really fun. The showers are so nice and warm. That was the best campsite I have ever been to I had the best time.

Hunua Falls Camp provided a fantastic atmosphere for our seminars, the natural beauty surrounding us also provided an uplifting and relaxing environment. The facilities were excellent for our needs and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this camp site to any organisation.

We held a Scrappin’ Weekend at the Camp and it was absolutely PERFECT for our needs! The fire in the corner made a winter camp a perfect option for a bunch of Creative Memories scrapbook makers! We used the main hall for making pages all day and all night, too, if people so chose and the kitchen was a perfect size for cooking as well as eating at the big table when we were hungry. The cabins were superb for our ladies who ranged in age from 10 years old to 75 years old as the mattresses were soft and not noisy and the heaters meant we could warm up the rooms before bedtime and have it all warm and cozy. The glorious natural surroundings meant that some used the opportunity away from the city to go for walks and soak up the beauty of the falls and the bush. All in all this was a perfect setting for us all to enjoy a weekend away from our day to day lives creating pages in a warm and hospitable environment! Thanks so much for such an excellent weekend!

We have been using Hunua Falls camp for our autumn university students camp. It’s a camp which has great options for accommodation, a great kitchen for self catering, and two good areas for group meetings. The scenery is beautiful, and the grounds are great too for fun outside activities. When we go it’s getting towards the cold part of the year. Hunua provide lots of heaters in the rooms so that our attendees sleep pretty well. It’s away from any close neighbours so you don't have to worry too much about noise restrictions. But it's also pretty close to Auckland so that you don't need to travel too far to get there.

Hunua Falls are a wonderful facility for our school choirs. We enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and the facilities are very conducive to choral learning.

"We have attended the Hunua Falls Presbyterian Camp annually since April 2007. Over the years there has been constant improvement and development. We experienced the building phase in 2007 during which the new dormitory block was built. This has been a wonderful addition to a very user-friendly facility and we will continue to use this camp.

The camp management staff are very friendly, totally obliging and efficient. They certainly have made our camp experiences easy and all requests for assistance have been immediately attended to. Brenton and Glenn are to be commended for this.

I have found the facilities to be well kept and I enjoy the proximity to the Hunua Falls and the ranges. Our children thoroughly enjoy the environment and we hope to continue to make use of this facility."

Peter, Birkdale Primary School

Hunua Falls camp is a well set up, well maintained complex on an awesome site.
For many years our Music School ran annual Camps here making the most of the facilities and the location near Hunua Falls and various outdoor activities. With the various combinations of cabins, staff accommodation  and common areas we were able to run successful Camps for our group for 27 years. For getting away from everything but still being within close proximity to Auckland, Hunua Falls Camp is the ideal venue to create memories and have fun.
