Safety first

All of our activities will be conducted by Fairbridge-qualified instructors and the safety equipment required will be supplied. Should you require additional instructors for your activities, please do not hesitate to let our team know. Additional instructors will be available with an extra fee per instructor.

Safety is our first and foremost priority during activities. Enclosed shoes are required for all participants and supervisors for all activities including all water-based activities. During activities, our team will make sure the body harness and helmet are always attached properly to participants. We also recommend that groups bring small portable first aid kits when separating offsite for activities.

Another important aspect of safety is the season. The hot season in Australia between October and May is quite precarious and unpleasant to do activities outdoor. Bushfires and heatwaves are more likely to happen during these months, so please be mindful of this with your request.

Fun activities for all

Participants with disabilities are welcome to join our activities at Camp Fairbridge. Please note that there are some restrictions and the unavailability of activities due to risk levels. Please discuss your inclusive support needs with our team prior to your booking and we will help you customise your requests. Participants with any medical conditions and allergies must be reported to our team at booking. It is also highly recommended that these participants mention their medicines to our team and supply them during activities. We are not responsible for any medical conditions without any information and disqualification of participants might be applied.
