Current status:  Short-term accommodation providers are permitted to operate.  Schedule 1 in the most recent Queensland Health Business Undertakings, Activities and Undertakings Direction #26 (25th August 2021) and Restrictions for Impacted Areas (Updated 20th August 2021) both allow short-term accommodation operators to continue to remain open, explicitly mentioning Outdoor Education providers within this category of open businesses.  These advices are constantly monitored by QCCC staff to ensure venues are operating in compliance with the latest applicable directions.

Covid-Safe school camps It's hard to believe we are already halfway through Third Term.  It's been five weeks since school camps recommenced at our venues and in that time we've been able to fine-tune our operations and Heath Management Plans, giving a safe and thoroughly enjoyable camp experience to thousands of students. Here's a selection of testimonials we've received about our Covid Safe operations showing schools camp are going ahead safely and well in Queensland, and being really appreciated by groups.  We're grateful for Education Queensland's commitment to camping programs and Queensland Health who have worked with the industry to endorse our Industry Plan.  We look forward to hosting all the camps who've booked with us this year, and beyond. We would like to say a massive thank you for a wonderful Camp this year. With the COVID Safe operations in place, incredible staff, amazing food and awesome activities, our students had a spectacular week! We are really looking forward to coming again next year! 

Covid Safe School Camp QueenslandThere's always a nervous anticipation when you start something "new", which was really what it was like last week when we re-opened for schools with Covid-Safe operations. So we were really chuffed to get this feedback on how we went. It was so good to bring the students to Mapleton last week. I was not sure we would have the opportunity to do so this year, so while there were many differences in this camp to the format we are used to, it was wonderful to be there and some of the changes turned out to be highly valued. That is especially the case with the Triballink programs and I have already had conversations with the administration about retaining that component for next year's camp program.
