50th Year Celebrations
After 50 years Camp Cooinda is still providing great experiences for young people every summer on the Gippsland Lakes. Thank you to everybody who helped us celebrate at the Collingwood Town Hall on Saturday 23rd October 2010. We have photos and videos below for those who couldn't be there.
If you did not register for the event and are not already receiving emails from Camp Cooinda, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page and we will keep in touch with you occasionally in future as a 'Friend of Cooinda'.
Photos from the night are now in our gallery: 50th Year Celebration Photos
As well as the ten minute history of Camp Cooinda in the video below, David Smith's 50th Anniversary DVD includes a 45 minute documentary of one summer camp in 2009 and a complete recording of the final night beach ceremony with David Merritt's telling of the 'The Legend of Wowasa'. The full DVD costs $25. To order your copy please send an email with your address to email@example.com.
