With over 15 years in the Australian Tourism Industry, I am passionate about showcasing the very best that Australia has to offer.
Summer Camps are such a unique opportunity to experience our world, grow as person, and discover what lies within. After spending time in the traditional summer camp setting, I had the idea to expand the possibilities. From this seed of a thought, came the dream and vision of Aussie Summer Camps.
I have recently attended the International Camping Congress held in Antalya, Turkey (October 2014) and completed the International camp Directors Course.

Lyndon takes care of all things logistics for Aussie Summer Camps. Having taken part in a youth exchange program to Philadelphia, USA at an early age, he recognises, and has a strong belief in the experience of travel for teens.
Viewing his experience as â€˜life-changingâ€™ and â€˜formativeâ€™, Lyndon is here to ensure that our travel plans, in and out of airport/ bus stations/ trains, run as smoothly as possible. Once a tour guide, he has a great handle on the necessities of travel.
A Dad himself, providing safety and reliability is of utmost importance.
Jen has a life long passion for travel. Her favourite travel style is â€˜off the beaten trackâ€™, and her idea of a â€˜holidayâ€™ is climbing a mountain!
Having taken her children on many adventures, Jen is also an advocate for independent travel for teens after seeing the positive changes in her two teenage daughters. One after a short exchange to Japan, and the other after an expedition to Ecuador.
Jenâ€™s previous career was at a senior level within financial institutions, so we count ourselves lucky to have her professional expertise mixed with her real passion.
Our camp leaders include university students or recent graduates that have studied in the fields of Outdoor Education, Sports and Recreation, Physical Education, or Health Sciences. We have a ratio of a minimum of 6:1, ensuring that everyone gets the attention, assistance and support they require.
