12 Jul Brisbane School Camps – The Capital has lots to offer!
With Queensland being Australia’s most de-populated State in Australia a Brisbane School Camp is a great format for regional schools to expose their students to the State’s capital. Located just a short 20 minute from the CBD, QCCC Brookfield is the closest exclusive school camp site to all the activities and delights of Brisbane city. That’s why the focus of QCCC Brookfield is on its home city – Brisbane.
As one of few camping options within the city it is highly sought after by country schools from all over the State. Schools from as far away as Cairns and the Whitsundays are regular visitors.
Brisbane city offers a range of fascinating and educational destinations for visiting schools, QCCC Brookfield’s website page on Brisbane activities lists more than forty of them. QCCC also offers Encounter Brisbane packages incorporating historical and reflective tours of the city CBD. Schools come to Brisbane for a range of innovative programs. Some make the most of the many free attractions including Parliament House tours and visits to the great options available in South Bank’s Cultural precinct. Tours of the sports Stadiums are also a favourite.
Other schools use the QCCC Brookfield in the later years of high school for leadership camps where they also incorporate university visits and challenges to familiarise country kids to urban public transport. Don’t be deceived by QCCC Brookfield’s proximity to the city however. It’s tucked away in one of Brisbane’s leafy prestige suburbs surrounded by rainforest, bush walks in Brisbane Forest Park and horse properties. Brookfield even has its own rural show. It really is the best of both worlds.
QCCC Brookfield is more than a site for country schools. With fourteen meeting spaces and great location in Brisbane it is very much sought after by the city’s schools for leadership retreats, music camps and retreats. Weekend events at Brookfield means Brisbane students can combine their camp with their normal weekend sporting commitments, and Brookfield’s up-market accommodation and catering means it is popular with older students in upper High school as well as adult groups.
All of QCCC Brookfield’s accommodation is ensuited and air-conditioned and there are no bunk beds. The centre also features a swimming pool, beach volleyball court, tennis court and TV/games room. With high quality catering, inner-city convenience and excellent meeting spaces QCCC Brookfield is one of the premiere Brisbane school campsites available.
