“I have had great service from the staff at Manjedal Activity Centre for many years as Unit Leader of Ocean Reed SHS Emergency Service Cadets, with my first camp in the year 2000. We have returned annually since then as I consider Manjedal one of the best value camping sites in W.A. Last year all my needs were met by the great staff including Dave, Simon, Nicolle, Vicky, Eagle and Alexis. We will be back in 2019!”

“As always, the staff at Manjedal treated us well and the facilities were fantastic. We were comfortable and had everything we needed. We always appreciate the ability to tailor our stay to suit our needs – being able to self-manage some of the activities really help to keep the camp affordable for our students.”

“We chose Manjedal Activity Centre for our Year 9 Camp. Manjedal Staff were incredibly accommodating with our booking and recommending activities for our students. There were a wide range of activity options for us to choose from and Manjedal staff were professional and engaging when running sessions. Facilities at the Youth Centre were outstanding and upon arrival the campsite was immaculate. Feedback from students has been that Year 9 was their best camp experience yet! I would recommend Manjedal Activity Centre to anyone interested in booking a high school camp. Thank you for having us and we look forward to visiting Manjedal again next year.”

“Great time! We went in October 2018 for the St Hilda’s year 7 father and daughter camp. We had a tremendous time with the flying fox, archery, inflatable obstacle course, laser tag, sitting around the fire pit and more. The facilities and activities made for a very enjoyable trip. I am a huge advocate for Manjedal!”

Well done to MAC!”

“I have been using Manjedal for a number of years to run a school leadership camp. The accommodation at Manjedal is exactly what we need. The dorms are comfortable, the kitchen facilities are great, and the hall space is suited to our needs. What I really like about this site, is that there are so many varied activities all within walking distance, which means we can make most of the weekend without travelling.
We have used a number of activities available over the years, and I can recommend them all. The staff are well trained and thorough when it comes to safety. They relate well to the students, and while still maintaining the necessary safety requirements, allow the students to have fun. It has been good to get to know the staff over the years. The booking process is super easy, and the admin staff are very friendly and helpful. The distance from Perth, and the pricing makes it an easy choice for a campsite. We will definitely continue to use Manjedal.”

Manjedal Activity Centre is a magical camp for young adventurers – and not so young Ministers who can be cajoled onto a 240 metre flying fox through the trees!
One of the wonderful programs they run is camps for children in the care of the Department of Communities where they can enjoy challenges like abseiling and raft building which helps inspire them to aim high and dream big.
One young camper said about Manjedal – “I feel safe here. I feel like it’s a home… This camp has motivated me to go to school every day, try out for the state team (netball)… and follow my dreams.”

On Mother’s Day, we visited the Manjedal Activity Centre as a family to see Craig’s plaques – one at the chapel and one on the shelter that he helped construct on Top-End Track. It was really special for us to visit Manjedal as Craig loved the Scouting movement and his life revolved around the WA Rovers.
Craig joined the Scouting movement as a young Joey, and spent the next 18 years as a Cub, Scout, Venturer, and was heartbreakingly taken from us at 25 year’s old in his final year as a Rover. During his 18 years, he visited Manjedal countless times and as a Rover, spent plenty of time working to improve the infrastructure. He was not looking forward to the day he would be officially “booted” and will now forever remain a Rover.
The Kunze family is very appreciative of the tribute and warmth that we still receive from those in the Scouting movement, and it’s always special for us to return to Manjedal to clean the plaques and remember our brother and son. Thank you for allowing us to visit again.
