Carey Park is situated at the foot of the Waitakere Ranges heritage area in Henderson Valley just 30 minutes from central Auckland. Magnificent native bush surrounds it, and is the ideal place for large groups, with 170 bed accommodation, catering and activities. 

Carey Park Christian Camp is available for groups to hire seven days a week. The buildings are spacious and comfortable, being set alongside beautiful native bush and bordering Opanuku Stream. We offer a wide range of activities, from those specifically designed with educational outcomes in mind, through to sporting and physical challenges! Try out our rock-climbing wall or fly down our thrilling 200m long, 9m high flying fox.   

The food is appetising and the staff are very willing to assist you in having an enjoyable community experience. You won’t find a more comfortable, professional, organised and convenient camp to accomplish your goals. Enjoy the challenging and refreshing environment that accompanies both outdoor and indoor activities.  


We strive to ensure that all school groups coming to camp meet the Ministry of Education’s goal for achieving quality educational outcomes. We do this by using the Ministry of Education’s EOTC guidelines.

Whilst on camp there are a variety of brilliant activities which will transform any gathering into an interactive, exciting experience. Develop team bonding through interactive challenges or just have some fun. Have a browse through our range of options and pick the ones to make your camp a memorable one. 

We split activities into group lead ones and staff instructed ones. Our staff will give a safety briefing to adults who will lead activities. With instructed activities to ensure safe outcomes for our guests, our staff will run and supervise them.

Our activities are located in park grounds and native bush, so there is plenty of space for your group to take part in adventure, challenge and risk suitable for all ages and skill sets. Develop team bonding through interactive challenges or just have some fun. There are several activity options available for your group.  

Our activities undergo an annual independent audit to ensure that we provide them in the safest possible manner, meeting the highest standards of safety and professionalism. Where required, they register us with WorkSafeNZ under the Adventure Activity Regulations 2016.
