Veterans' Adventure Camp

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 have 13 places 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 will conclude with a 'connection to community' gathering at The Oasis Townsville. This gathering will allow camp participants the opportunity to connect with adventure-based sporting organisations of Townsville.
