About us

The Wesburn Recreation Camp or Douglas Donald Recreation Camp as it was traditionally known was originally proposed as a camp for St John Ambulance
Cadets (St John Ambulance members aged 11 to 17 years) in 1956.

However, the camp did not open until 1964 when a long term lease was arranged on the Crown Land. For the cadets who used the camp all those years ago,
camping was initially under canvas, but eventually the facilities and cabins were built and the camp was made to accommodate officer training, and a variety
of recreational activities, some of which are still in use by our campers today.

Today the camp is still used by St John Ambulance Volunteers, but is also available to the public. Profits from the camp go towards the St John Ambulance Community initiatives.
