Other comments: I had a wonderful camp. I am never relaxed at camp but your camp was so well run and planned. We were able to have our activities at night with your suppers provided. Everything was a team effort. The hay bales were an innovative activity and I never saw a kid ‘bored’ I am so glad I took up your idea of Wilsons Prom on the first day. I have been to several camps now and your camp is the best. You welcome the kids and have good expectations of them. The last day;s activities with Paul were splendid. I expect the rest of your appraisals will be similiar to this one.Teacher Feedback Form

The activities were fun with just the right amount of challenge, the food was amazing (so much!) and the entire experience was terrific.

Dear Paul, Abby, Rhonda and Kathryn. Thank you for all the time you spent on us, we had a great time at camp, we all loved your activities and the hard work you put into making sure we were safe in all of them, including the flying fox and giant swing. The best parts of camp were Paul’s sense of humour, Abby’s great plan to tip us out of the canoe, Rhonda’s smile and Kathryn’s cooking. Thank you so much for making this camp the best one yet.
Dear Forest Lodge Staff. I thank you for the great time I had. It was really fun and the staff were really nice. All of us enjoyed spider pig I think he was the favourite animal. You put a lot of effort into giving us a great time and your facilities are very good. It’s easily the best camp ever.
Thank you from AlexAlex

Please find enclosed a copy of all my photos. I enjoyed my stay immensely, thanks. With a view like yours it is impossible to take a bad photo.
Hi There Kathryn,
We had a wonderful time again with you and Paul and would like to thank you both for your energy and efforts to create a wonderful atmosphere for the children to get the most out of the week.
The kids have been busy reflecting, swapping stories and photos and I’m sure we will send you down some of their work!!
Thanks again, hope all is well.
Dear Kathryn, Paul and staff,
Thank-you so much for your assistance and expertise whilst on camp here at Forest Lodge. The children had a fabulous time due to your care and wonderful sense of humour. We’re sure the children will be talking about camp as the highlight of the year! Thank-you for directing the kids and helping out our staff and parents in any way possible.
We kindly appreciate your helpful manner.

Dear Paul and Kath
The Allies Football/Netball Club sincerely wishes to thank you both for a truly magnificent day on Sunday.
To open the farm to all and have so many stay on for games, luncheon and plus for many tea as well was an excellent starter for the season.
The Allies appreciates the way in which everyone was welcomed.
Socially it was magnificent and the Club will no doubt look forward to this becoming an annual event.
Once again many thanks and congratulations for a huge day.
Dear Kathryn and Paul,
Thank-you so much for having us at Forest Lodge Farm. I had a great time and I am sure everybody else did too!
My fav activity was the canoeing, it was so funny when Paul pushed us in the water! I felt a cool rush as I fell in. As I swam to the Island and back I felt like floating there all day. I also liked the giant swing I went all the way to the top. As I pulled the red cord I felt like there was no turning back and there was a split second when I felt like time stopped and my heart missed a beat then…………..I WAS FLYING! Well not really but it sure felt like it.
The staff there were really friendly and the food………….YUM!
Also the food we made at bush cooking was the best my damper was so hard on the outside and soft on the inside. It was great and the bush toffee apples, the sugar melted and it’s making my mouth water just writing about it.
I really loved the time I spent at Forest Lodge Farm, I really enjoyed the experience.
I LOVE FOREST LODGE
Dear Paul and Kathryn
I really enjoyed all the activities you helped us in. My favourite activities were Giant Swing, Ponding, Flying Fox and bush cooking. Thanks for letting us be WILD. I really learned how to be a country kid.
Secondly we really loved the YUMMY food you gave us. We loved everything!
In the activities I was really scared on the Giant Swing, thanks for teaching us that its ok to get dirty on camp but camp is for having fun. Thanks for organising the Red Faces Concert and the disco. Thanks for teaching us to never give up and to be nice to each team mate. WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU.
Dear Paul and Kathryn,
Your camp was the best camp ever! I think that the best part was the food. I had seconds for most of the food. I enjoyed the activities. The bush cooking didn’t taste like flour and water which was good. I didn’t fall off the ropes course. I didn’t catch anything in ponding so that wasn’t good. The giant swing was scary enough but I still enjoyed it. My hands got dirty pulling the rope. The next day I had archery and scored 26 points but no bullseye. I could of got 2 bullseyes but they bounced off the balloons. It was hard running up the flying fox hill but it was worth it for the ride. I got soaked during hut building. There were so many things to do during free time. I rate Forest Lodge 10/10. I’ve been to two other camps and this is the best one out of the 3. Thank you for letting us stay at the camp. I barrack for the Tigers too.
Yours Truly Alex.
Dear Paul and Kathryn,
Thank you for having us at Forest Lodge Farm we all had great fun and loved your hospitality. We all would like to stay longer but of course we couldn’t. The activities would have to be the best part of camp: I especially liked the giant swing, the canoeing and the ponding. I also thought it was a special camp because it had things that other camps didn’t like ponding, real disco lights and spider pig! I slept very well every night the beds were very comfortable, Max thought so too because every morning I would see who was awake and Max was always in his bed well asleep. When it came to dinner time it was awesome, we always had great meals and pretty much every time I had seconds and let me tell you, you will never leave the table hungry because they also have desert, sometimes it’s chocolate mousse, pudding or heaps of other yummy foods, Any way thanks again for letting us stay at Forest Lodge Farm.
Dear Kathryn and Paul,
Thank you for having us! We hope that we weren’t any trouble. I thought Forest Lodge was a great camp! The staff were really friendly and the food was great! All the activities were really fun, I especially liked the Giant Swing! Bush Cooking was really fun as well!! but my favourite activity would have to be ponding/yabbying because it was really fun getting stuck in the mud and getting my shoes all wet and squelchy. I thought the ropes course was really great as well because it was a challenge and you needed balance. All the animals were really friendly especially Popcorn and Milo. All in all I think Forest Lodge is a wonderful camp and I hope that I can go there again someday.

Hi Kathryn and Paul,
Just letting you know that all the kids are raving about your camp they have all come back pumped and want to come back next year. Thanks for being so cool with all the students of both camps. The teachers also had a great time. They were very happy with the meals that were served and especially the cheese and biscuits. You are both LEGENDS in the eyes of all the kids. Thanks again, have a great Christmas and New year.
It was the most enjoyable camp I have so far experienced. Food was SUPERB, you guys were lovely, facilities were comfortable, activities were fun. Our kids had a BALL and so did the staff.
