We offer two services: A fully catered service where all meals and cleaning are provided, and a self-catering option where groups hire the camp facilities, cater and clean themselves.

For breakfast there is a choice of different cereals, toast, Vegemite, margarine, jam, orange juice and an additional option every morning i.e. pancakes, boiled or scrambled eggs, yoghurt & fruit salad etc. There is 24 hr access to the dining room and coffee/tea facilities.
Special catering requirements
Food allergies and intolerances have become part of our everyday lives in recent years. We have standard alternative options on offer for most allergies / intolerances. The group leader is required to supply the camp manager with information in regards to catering requirements 2 weeks before camp. Detailed information in regards to anaphylaxis, food allergies, food intolerances, food choices or religious requirements are required to ensure safe foods for all participants. Allambee Camp will liaise with the group leader or if applicable participants / participants’ parents to ensure appropriate catering.
Catering requirements that affect the whole group such as food choices (vegetarian, vegan etc.) or religious requirements (Halal etc.) need to be discussed with camp management upon booking.
Allambee Camp has safety procedures in place to cater for participants that are at risk of anaphylaxis. Detailed information is sent out to all groups leading up to the camp. For kindergarten / school aged children a copy of the Action Plan for Anaphylaxis is required. This form needs to be signed by a Medical Practitioner and should according to ASCIA be reviewed and reissued when patients are reassessed by their doctor, and each time they obtain a new adrenaline autoinjector prescription, which is approximately every 12 to 18 months. The group leader is required to supply the camp with detailed information in regards to the person at risk of anaphylaxis and the camp will liaise with the group leader, anaphylactic participant or parent of the anaphylactic child if deemed necessary.
Allambee Camp allows anaphylactic participants to bring their own foods, providing Food Safety Guidelines are followed when transporting foods to the venue.
Allambee Camp is an Allergy Aware camp. The camp does not store any nuts or nut products in camp facilities and we ask visitors not to bring any nuts or nut products to the camp. Common allergens such as egg, milk, wheat etc. are used and stored at the camp. If you require further information in regards to anaphylactic visitors please contact us.
Self catered groups
Allambee Camp offers groups a self-catering service. The groups can hire the camp facilities, provide their own catering and do their own cleaning.
Self-catering groups will have access to the camp’s commercial kitchen with commercial cookers / ovens, hot plate, warmer, dishwasher, cool room, storage space, freezer space, conveyor toaster, and sufficient utensils / crockery and cutlery required to cater for up to 100 people. The group also has access to a big BBQ set up near the kitchen. Please BYO rice cookers, as these are not part of our standard kitchen equipment.
