School Retreats & Camps

Our passion is getting kids outdoors & connected in nature & disconnected from devices, in a safe & supported environment.

Located in the picturesque Tweed Valley, Northern NSW, on the 400acre historic Midginbil property of lush, green landscape. Just over 1hr from the Coolangatta, QLD airport & the iconic Byron Bay, NSW & 2 hours from Brisbane, QLD.

Midginbil School Camps provides full packages, which include activity program, meals & accommodation and we have been operating as an outdoor education venue for over 30 years.

Recently, we have changed the way we offer school camps, commencing in 2023 and will no longer be providing activities and/or activity programs. Therefore, school retreats are perfect for our venue, in the beautiful natural environment, enveloping students in beauty & tranquility. Withlenty of space for breakout areas and DIY programs, students will leave Midginbil with renewed energy and sense of stillness, perfect for the fast paced, digital world that we live in.

Our Retreat packages include delicious, wholesome food, catering for all meals, and comfortable, country style accommodation. All rooms have their own recently refurbished ensuite bathrooms. Our meals start with lunch on arrival to lunch on departure.
