Camp Somerset is an Outdoor Education and Recreation Facility owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in South Queensland as a part of a worldwide network of convention centres and camps.

While being primarily set up for our Summer Camp programs, throughout the year we have specialised in client driven, outcome focused outdoor programming and education, providing tailored programs matched to the educational needs of students, schools and colleges.

Weekends are open to churches, families and clubs from all denominations who are looking for a place of escape and enjoyment in a natural and healthy environment for fellowship and worship.

Celebrating 40 years in 2025

In 1946 Maranatha Camp was opened, but with urbanisation and a need for updated facilities the decision was made to sell and purchase the Camp Somerset property in 1985 and has been developing ever since. Most recently, in 2020 additional property was acquired to ensure and protect the culture of the camp, safe from encroachment.
