Camp Somerset would like to let our fellow Outdoor Education Community know that we are feeling for everyone affected by the impact of COVID-19 right now.

We would like to pass on a personal thanks to our staff for their understanding during these unprecedented times over the past few months with Fires & Floods affecting the Colo Valley and now the next few months as we ride this rollercoaster, commonly known as Coronavirus.

We will be resilient through these tough times; as we request of our students, we will come through the other side – we don’t know when but we will. We will come back stronger and will be seeking to build-up our Group Leading team again.
