Join us this summer in Goongerah, East Gippsland for the Summer of Citizen Science and Forest Defence!

The GECO communal kitchen will be set up with shared cooking gear, there will be some communal meals, but please bring food to contribute to the kitchen or cook for yourself. We always encourage people to be as self sufficient as possible.
Also small amounts of cash to donate are much appreciated to cover the costs of putting the camp on!


Goongerah is a remote environment, with no phone reception and shops. The closest shops are 70kms away so make sure you are prepared with plenty of food and fuel.


Our camps this year have been hugely popular, this one will be the biggest and best yet. There'll be entry level activities and more advanced activities for people who have attended camps already. There's something for everyone!
