Veterans' Adventure Camp

The date for the next Adventure is yet to be set - watch this space for when we open the Expressions of Interest. 

Introduction

'The Oasis Townsville has partnered with Outer Limits Adventure Fitness to offer veterans and serving members the opportunity to be a part of the first Veterans Adventure Camp. We usually run with 14 spots available for this 4-day, 3-night activity at the Outer Limits Adventure Centre, Paluma.

The aim of the camp is to grow positive social connections and promote an active lifestyle.

 

The camp involves hiking through some of the beautiful rainforests that Paluma has to offer to our first overnight camp. Fun and conversation around the campfire each night. The following morning another short hike will bring us to the Paluma Dam and an opportunity to enjoy some water-based fun. After another night around the campfire, we will mountain bike back to the Outer Limits Adventure Centre. Finishing off with the Outer Limits High Ropes experience and our return back to Townsville.

 

The Oasis Townsville Veterans Adventure Camp experience includes a few activities on either side of the camp up at Paluma to get to know each other. It will conclude with a 'connection to community' gathering at The Oasis Townsville. 

We ran our first Adventure Camp at Paluma in Aug 2021 and it was so successful we will run them again when needed and the funds to conduct it are secured.
