Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any camp rules about camp fires and provision of fire wood?
Do we need to bring our own water supply?
No, all taps at the camp supply safe drinking water, as do the surface taps at the campsites. The creek water is very clean but not treated so it would be best to boil this water if you want to use it for consumption.
What are the arrangements for bunkhouses?
You can find information about the bunkhouse accommodation and amenities on the Location page of this website. Mattresses are supplied, you will need to bring all other bedding and linen including towels and pillows.
What facilities are there for cooking and self-catering?
Campers may be fully self-sufficient for all of their meals, or pre-book dinners and lunches from our camp caterers. If you are self-catering you must bring all of your cooking equipment - you may use the limited bunkhouse facilities.
Bunkhouse campers have access to limited self-catering facilities, or they can also pre-book catered meals. If bunkhouse campers are self catering you will need to bring cooking equipment, crockery, cutlery, tea-towels etc.
The bunkhouse facilities for breakfast/meals preparation are as follows:
There is a ‘camp kitchen’ located in the breezeway between Soprano House and Alto House suitable for breakfast preparation: toasters, jugs and small gas camp-stoves.
There are limited cooking facilities in Alto House kitchen: jug, microwave and toasters suitable for breakfast preparation. There are no cooking facilities in bass House.
Bunkers will need to bring coolers for food and their own cooking equipment. See further details in the Location tab.
I'm local to the area - can I pop in to visit or come for a day or to the concert?
No. If you want to be part of the camp you need to buy tickets or volunteer and come for the full 3 days, staying onsite. Years of experience have taught us that the camp works best for everyone this way. There are also new rules around COVID management that we need to comply with.
So if you want to come, DO! For the whole 3 days.
Please note that due to COVID safe practice tickets need to be purchased BEFORE camp - no ticket sales will be available at camp.
Can I send my child along by themselves to this camp?
Rosewood does not have camp leaders like Somers camp. All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a supervising adult. This adult must be identified when registering.
Are there showers for the campers?
Campers can access the showers located in the Soprano bunkhouse. There are no portable showers.
