    Swimming in Bickley Reservoir

    Bickley Outdoor Recreation Camp management strongly recommend that all groups intending on swimming in Bickley Reservoir book qualified life savers through the camp for water safety. All groups should check with their governing bodies to make sure that their water safety is in accordance with official procedures. Swimming is not available all year round. Please contact the camp for further information.


    Bickley Outdoor Recreation Camp can cater for most user groups. The dining room, meeting room and dormitories can be accessed by people in wheelchairs. The dormitories have designated wheelchair accessible ablutions.

    The camp is located in a valley. This can make it difficult for all user groups to access all parts of the camp environment. Camp management highly recommends that interested client leaders arrange a site tour to discuss the needs of the group and to determine suitability.

    Some programs can be modified to include all participants. Please discuss options with the camp directly.

    Department of Education guidelines

    Most adventure recreation programs at Bickley Outdoor Recreation Camp meet or exceed the Department of Education’s (DoE) Guidelines for Outdoor Education and Recreation Activities. In consideration of specific environments at the site, variations from the department’s guidelines exist to increase safety.
