Lostock School Camp
Leichhardt Campus of the Sydney Secondary College maintains a modest riverfront camp at Lostock, 60km north of Maitland in the Upper Hunter Valley. Set amongst working farms and rolling hills right on the banks of the Patterson River, it was once a one-teacher country school that has been converted to provide a rural education camp for groups of 30 or so, but is also set up as a comfortable weekender for College families, staff and general public when not in use by the College. The camp is looked after by Leichhardt Campus and parent volunteers.
To describe Lostock as a camp is a bit of a misnomer - Lostock has all necessary creature comforts - electricity, flushing toilets, tank water, hot running water and showers. There is a reasonably equipped kitchen and outside, a BBQ and campfire. A common room has a fireplace, couches, stereo and games tables and comfortable seating.
A modest tariff (from $40/classroom/night) is charged to fund electricity, the larger maintenance jobs and improvements.
