There are a lot of options at the Hanmer Forest Camp. Schools can book the Ensor Lodge, Forestry Huts and use the Big Kitchen (100), Maling Kitchen (55), or Reid Kitchen (35), or a combination of both cabins. The Abilities Lodge is perfect for smaller groups or can be combined with the Forestry cabins too. We also offer tent sites for those wishing to get the full camping experience. Special school prices for New Zealand schools during term time apply.
