It is the responsibility of each group to ensure that campers understand and follow the Campsite’s rules and procedures. Each group must have a competent leader in charge to liaise with Campsite Staff. We recommend a ratio of one leader to ten campers (1:10). The Group Leader is responsible for camper supervision at all times. Campsite Staff or their sub-contracted Outdoor Activity Providers may instruct, lead, demonstrate or assist in an activity but the Group Leader is deemed to be responsible for overall group supervision and safety. The Campsite will provide written procedures for the conduct of specialized outdoor activities.
The payment of a deposit by the hirer constitutes an agreement to hire the use of the facilities from the campsite.
