Chip in for Camp Adair


Camp Adair needs you

Camp Adair is an iconic facility that has been supporting our community for over a 100 years. Generations of kiwi kids have created life long memories, explored the outdoors, grown and learnt with us. But now Camp Adair is facing tough times. After 3 months of closed doors due to the latest lockdown we have lost over $1million in revenue. This is revenue we rely on to keep our lights on, maintain quality outdoor facilities for the community, and to help our local low-decile schools access school camps at a massively subsidised rate or completely free of charge.

Now that we are exiting lockdown Camp Adair could really use your help, but don’t worry we have two ways you can support us and ensure many more kiwi kids can enjoy our camps. Support Camp Adair by joining us for a round of golf, or donate to help us bring more low-decile schools to Camp.

Book a tee time

With the support of Baber Golf and Omaha Beach Golf Club we have built a 6 hole short course with four par 3’s and two par 4’s weaved around the 70 hectare Camp Adair property, including a par 3 signature hole across the Wairoa River, which would match anything on offer around the country. You can also grab a bite to eat from Rena Cressey’s legendary kitchen before or after your round to further support the camp. To book your tee time click on the link below

Make a donation

If golf is not your thing, you can donate to support Camp Adair and help to make school camp a reality for schools that cannot afford it. School camps are a rite of passage for kiwi kids, and we believe that no one should miss out on the character building experience of a school camp. The learning, connections, and personal development that kids experience at camp just cannot be replicated in the classroom and are a hugely important part of every kiwi kid’s school life. Your donation will help Camp Adair get back on its feet after lockdown and bring deserving kids to a much needed outdoor adventure at Camp Adair.
