Here at BMAC we offer tailor made programmes to suit you personally, but if you are keen on being a part of a camp already on the go, then sit back and relax and let us do the hard work of organising a camp for you!

Our six acre property is in a beautiful, private location surrounded by trees, and bordered by a stream and native bush. Our purpose-built accommodation is modern, dry, warm and designed to blend in to the surrounding environment. After a day’s adventures you can even enjoy our cosy camp fire down by the river.

Our instructors are members of NZOIA — the New Zealand Outdoor Instructors Association.

BMAC is accredited for all outdoor activities. We meet benchmark safety standards and demonstrate a commitment to safety and quality.


Through interactions with BMAC, troubled families we work with have been given the confidence to make life changing decisions in their lives. BMAC has always tailored our experiences so that our participants will gain all that they can from their time there.

Once we discovered this amazing place, we have never considered looking anywhere else. Not only is the venue comfortable, clean but it is affordable too. The team at BMAC have always been so happy, smooth and easy to deal with too. 5 stars from us!

My girls have attended several camps at BMAC and are eager to get to more! Having them arrive home full of the joys of life and being a kid is so great. They love the activities, rave about the food, the location and the staff.
