Bethany Park is an awesome place to base your camp from – lots of activities are in close proximity, such as mountain biking, tramping, kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, etc. The waterslide in the campgrounds is an extra bonus and a hit with everyone – adults included! The accommodation is perfect for school camps and the hosts are very hospitable and welcoming – nothing is a problem. We return every year and our students love their time here.
For 20 years Chilton Saint James School’s students have absolutely loved staying at Bethany Park for their Year 9 camp.
The camp staff are organised, easy to deal with and always keen to help the students have a safe and happy time. The location of the camp, at the entrance to the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park, enable easy access to the Park, the beach, the sea and bushwalks – so the activities available are many and varied. The providers in the area, such as sea-kayaking, abseiling and water taxis, deliver first class service and expertise.
Bethany Park is spacious with comfortable cabins, clean amenities, a great dining/ recreation hall and cosy conversation pit. The food is always excellent and specific dietary needs are well catered for.
The wonderful weather is a bonus, for many years we came to Kaiteriteri in September and what a treat it was to leave cold (maybe windy) Wellington behind to bask in lovely spring sunshine.
I unreservedly recommend Bethany Park for a memorable camp experience.
Bethany Park is fantastic! If you enjoy beaches, mountain biking, swimming, kayaking, abseiling & tramping you’ll love Bethany Park as a base for your camping experience. The people are great to deal with. The facilities are clean, well maintained and new projects are always on the go. Personally I’ve been taking classes for 12 years and Ranzau’s association stretches a lot further back than that (long may it last). Ranzau School loves it!
