Bickley Camp Open Day to provide outdoor adventures for the community

22 March 2019
Families and kids of all ages have a chance to enjoy the magic of the outdoors at the Bickley Outdoor Recreation Camp Community Open Day.

On Sunday April 7, the recreation camp will open its gates to the public to experience its unique bushland and enjoy a day of outdoor adventure.

Free outdoor activities await for kids and families including canoeing, cubby building, reptile education, climbing, and arts and crafts.

The 74-year-old camp has hosted more than 500,000 campers and visitors in its lifetime — first opening in 1945 to provide more healthy recreation options for Western Australians.

The camp is one of five owned and run by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. It can host up to 70 people in dorms, has tent camping for 50, and a day use area for up to 100 people.

The open day runs from 10am to 4pm.
