Main Com­plex (The ‘A’ Frame)


Bunk and Twin Rooms, Hall, Din­ing and Kitchen – 48 beds




The Main Com­plex or the A-Frame, as it is fondly known, has been a dis­tinc­tive land­mark in the Can­ter­bury region since its con­struc­tion in 1969. It is ideal for sports teams, fam­ily reunions and groups that require two levels of accom­mo­da­tion and large facil­i­ties. It has easy access to our exten­sive grounds; train­ing fields, challenge activ­i­ties includ­ing the con­fi­dence course and ini­tia­tives, swim­ming pool and fun games such as ori­en­teer­ing, dodge ball and Fris­bee golf. This facil­ity can be hired as a self-catered or fully-catered option. Easy park­ing is adja­cent to the build­ing and bus park­ing is avail­able on site.


The Main Com­plex has a large com­mer­cial grade, fully equipped kitchen. Self-catered groups need to sup­ply all their own food and sharp knives. The din­ing area can seat 80. There is easy access to the BBQ and out­side seating in sum­mer months. Self-serve tea and cof­fee are avail­able. The upstairs hall can accom­mo­date 100. It has two small break­out rooms, a mobile data pro­jec­tor, screen, white­boards and PA sys­tem avail­able on request.

All catered meals are made on site; menus, meal times and other options can all be adapted to your group’s needs.




The Main Com­plex sleeps 48 in 12 rooms; 6 x twin-single rooms and 6 x 6-berth bunk rooms. Male and female ablu­tion blocks and laun­dry area are adja­cent to the bed­rooms. Pil­lows and pil­low cases are sup­plied; linen sheets, duvet and towel are avail­able for hire.
