We have been using Manjedal Activity Centre for the past 23 years for our school camps and have seen huge changes for the betterment of the centre and customers over that time. In a competitive field, they have achieved a high level of professionalism in all aspects to be a leader in camps in W.A. The continued improvement and upkeep of facilities is evident in the years we have been using the facilities. The community as a broader group (both Scouts and outside groups) are always the beneficiaries in any improvements to the facilities at MAC. The evolving improvements are a reason why our schools and groups keep rebooking the venue from year to year.

Manjedal Activity Centre is a unique facility that has prices and flexibility that make it very accessible to non-profit organisations such as ours. We have consistently experienced professionalism and observed strong management from Manjedal staff, and their facilities are well-kept.

Scouts WA – Manjedal Activity Centre offers children in care who have experienced disadvantage, opportunities to engage in activities and attend recreational camps. Manjedal is widely used in the Cannington office by case workers with children on their case load. Manjedal is known to work with children who might display challenging behavioral issues and are willing to problem-solve so that all children are afforded meaningful opportunities. I have worked with Manjedal to send a child in care who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and had significant toileting difficulties to camp. I was delighted by how willing the staff at Manjedal were to collaborate with me to come up with a plan that would meet the child’s needs on camp. Although the child was somewhat anxious to attend camp at first, they returned delighted with their experience. In my view, Manjedal has a good reputation for delivering positive experiences to disadvantaged children with trauma backgrounds.
Kate Keisler, Director at Calm and Connected
We run a therapy camp at Manjedal Activity Centre. Having access to these facilities has enabled us to support children with complex behavioural challenges. Not only are these boys aged 11-14 years able to attend a fun and supportive camp, it means their parents are also able to get respite. These boys would not typically be able to attend a mainstream service. The grounds of Manjedal mean that everything is available all on the one site, the facilities are always immaculately clean and the staff attentive and helpful. We have not seen another facility in the Perth metro region that would allow us to run our camp for the types of kids that we have coming
They have always handled our bookings and attendance with a high level of professionalism and effeciency. We only have positive feedback from our experience of using their services. They ensure that the facilities are maintained to a high level and that the logistics of our programs are supported.
