Ah, Waimanaaki- what can I say?

If you want a place where you can get away from it all and yet be where it’s all happening?

And you want a place where you feel relaxed and welcomed and are made to feel part of the family from the minute you make your enquiry, then Waimanaaki looking after you is just the place you need to have your next camp.

Our men from Life Church in Palmerston North have been using this venue since 2008 (except for their sabbatical year 2012) and we have never felt so well looked after at ease there is no doubt a very welcoming spirit at Waimanaaki.

We have enjoyed each time we have gone back watching the improvements and development of the facilities over the years and the heart of the folk who look after you

Facilities: a big tick YES
Activities in and around the camp: a big tick YES
The people who look after you at the camp: there is not a tick big enough to say YES!

We are looking forward to heading back in 2013!
