Work has already started on a $3.1 million upgrade to Baptist Care SA’s popular Mylor Adventure Camp in the Adelaide Hills. The biggest investment in its 60-year history, this will significantly modernise facilities for school, community and corporate groups. Plans include an overhaul of the site’s kitchen, dining and accommodation facilities.
Last year, the picturesque 10ha campground on a horseshoe bend of the Onkaparinga River welcomed 9,000 visitors and over 16,000 nightsof accommodation. By 2024, it is expected that figures will grow by more than 40%.
This capital works program is also a significant investment into the Adelaide Hills region that creates jobs and stimulates the local economy. The Mylor Adventure Camp already employs over 60 people who provide adventure programs and work in catering, administration and site maintenance. The project will generate 75 new construction jobs.
Anne Barclay, Assistant Principal of Nuriootpa High School, looks forward to seeing the new Camp next year.
“We consider the Mylor Adventure Camp as an exceptional outdoor classroom for our students, where they learn new skills and build relationships in a fun and controlled environment,” she said.
Established in 1957, the camp is a 30-minute drive from the city and caters for groups between 6-180 people who are challenged to develop team skills and build stronger connections with their peers through a multitude of adventure activities.
