Outdoor recreation programs are the foundation of what Point Walter provides to the community. Since 1996, structured programs have been offered at Point Walter. They have evolved into 13 distinct recreation programs, with an additional range of program variations, training packages, workplace adventures and custom-developed programs.
The primary strategy outcome of the programs offered at the camp supports the Department's emphasis on promoting healthy, active lifestyles. By incorporating participation in recreation and physical activity during camping experiences, recreation programs provide a chance for guests to experience new activities, explore the benefits of physical activity and promote the maintenance of healthy lifestyles.
In order to meet these outcomes, Point Walter Recreation and Conference Centre operates within the ethos of Challenge by Choice.
