About

The KCC Mission

In July of 1979 The Karakariki Camp Trust Board formed with the aim of:

  • Helping the underpriviledged.
  • Promoting and encouraging Christian principles and belief.
  • Providing a camp to meet the needs of small groups that found it difficult to book larger facilities.
  • Promoting & Developing Karakariki Camp to achieve the above.

To Achieve this the board took ownership of the old Karakariki School site and developed it into accommodation, hall and catering facilitates.
