Go West School Camps

With Go West, you don’t need to book accommodation or activities, arrange transport, pay booking fees, organise camping equipment, provide food or even prepare meals because we do it all for you – it’s all included in the price!

Tell us which tour you would like, and we will handle the rest! We will do all of the organising if you have a group of 25 or 225 people.

You get more on our school camps!

Go West makes school camps great fun with more interesting and exciting things to do and see – all at a reasonable cost. We have 5-star air-conditioned coaches with reclining seats, underfloor storage, a radio cassette, a microphone for teachers’ use – and even for an excellent old sing-along!

The coach is accompanied by a safari-style kitchen which opens up to make an ideal meals preparation area. Our camping equipment includes comfortable camp mattresses, folding stools and easy-to-erect, four-person pyramid-style tents with built-in ground sheets.

…and what about the food!

See more, do more and learn more.

At Go West, we know that learning should be fun when it comes to school camps. Our camps include different and exciting activities which not only add to the adventure but broaden the minds of young people.

Some activities include question-and-answer worksheets; others are just for fun. You’ll experience a great sense of comradeship as you marvel at our excellent state.

We aim to provide a good mixture of outings and, where possible, give the children a chance to get some “hands-on” (these sorts of activities always prove to be popular). They’ll be talking about it for weeks!

More tours to choose from!

You’ll find a good range of tours to choose from, which cover many different areas of the state. These tours provide a guide only and can be changed to suit your needs.

And we’re open to suggestions! If you would like to incorporate any other tourist features of the area into these tours, tell us what you have in mind, and we’ll arrange it.

… or make your tour!

If you have a particular destination or region you would like to explore; we’re happy to arrange a tour to suit your requirements. It may tie into a relevant project at school or be of particular interest to your class. Let us know what you have in mind!
