    Meals

    We have partnered up with some great restaurants to ensure that your experience includes the culinary delights that Melbourne has to offer. Our restaurants are able to cater to almost all dietary requirements.

    Thanks to the generosity of V/Line, one of Doxa’s long standing corporate partners, schools are able to access free V/Line train travel as part of your camp stay with us.

    Camperships

    Our Campership Fund exists to support the families of children whose financial circumstance may preclude attendance.

    Our philosophy is that “no child will miss out due to financial hardship”.
