Testimonials

  • Michelle

    We'd like to thank you and the team for providing us with such a great programme on camp. The facilities and environment were all that we'd hoped for and our students took away amazing memories for life. We found that staff were professional at all times and only too happy to help. Our students made great connections with the instructors and enjoyed all of the experiences they had. We won't be doing a camp next year. But will certainly be in contact again, to plan another event some day. Thanks again for your hard work and organisation.

  • Cecilia Airey
    McAuley Girls High School,

    The staff rostered for this camp were outstanding. The quality of instructions, discussions initiated by the instructors, relevance to assessment were all at a very high standard. This group of instructors are highly experienced and have all developed a great rapport with our girls. All instructors have been very accommodating and have taken the assessment discussions very seriously. This is by far the best group of outdoor instructors I have come across in the many years of Kokako experience. Having a large number of female instructors has also been positive bonus for our girls.

    Kokako Lodge Staff were very professional and very patient with our more challenging students. The safety and programme delivery were excellent. No worries with any activities. There was a good mixture of very challenging activities with chilled out ones. Overall, very happy, the students were engaged and got a lot out of it. They won’t stop going on about camp for a while.

    On behalf of our Church congregation, we would like to thank Kokako Lodge management for all the support that you all have provided to make our Easter Camp running well. Special thanks to the staff who were personally involved in taking care of us. We had so much fun and the kids were definitely enjoying the outdoor activities.

  • Noma Koke Aanauatasi

    Our church and youth members were all happy at your place compare to other places we have camp before. They commented about how clean the toilets are, the wideness of the beds and the thickness of the mattresses they were so comfortable. The fresh air from the trees around and they love their walks in the mornings and spare times. But for us the chefs, we love everything in the kitchen so handy. So on behalf of our church and youth I would like to say thank you very much for having us stay at your place. We are very much appreciated everything your team had done for us.

    I absolutely loved my time at this camp! The scenery was stunning and I loved how it was so close to a beautiful waterfall. The instructors were awesome. They taught us how to make a raft, rescue someone hurt, climb all sorts of things and always believed we could do it. Thank you Kokako lodge for this amazing camp.
