Interest groups

Sports, music, drama, hobbies, arts, crafts and other shared interests can all benefit from uninterrupted time in the company of coaches, tutors or colleagues. Houghtons Bush Camp provides your group with the opportunity to become completely immersed in your favourite pastime.

Wide range of facilities
With a large heated hall/dining area, sheltered garden courtyard, playing field, confidence course, native forest environment and wild west coast beach location, Houghtons Bush Camp provides an attractive and productive environment for any interest group. The small private lounge is ideal for onsite planning/leadership meetings or as a quiet space as required.

Exclusive use
At Houghtons Bush Camp you won’t have to share with others, so you’ll be free to focus on your group’s interests without interruption. This includes the entire property, so you can even hold discussions or activities in the onsite native forest.

Convenient attractive location
Just 40 minutes from the centre of New Zealand’s largest city, Houghtons Bush Camp reduces travel time and costs for many groups. Most organisers also find the attractive ‘close to nature’ environment at Muriwai Beach helps to boost attendance and participation.

Flexible options
You can choose to reduce costs by preparing your own meals or hire commercial caterers to take care of it all. It’s up to you. You’re also free to make full use of the camps activity equipment and local attractions, or employ onsite adventure activity providers if you wish.
