Camp Bucca is a summer camp like nothing you’ve experienced before. Say ‘yes’ to the adventure!
Camp Bucca is located in the heart of Buccarumbi, a quaint little town west of the rugged Buccarumbi Ranges and south-west of Grafton (NSW), where the Nymboida and Boyd Rivers join forces. Campers will embark on a journey which will take them back in time to the 1800s, where horsemen and bullock teams would stop to change teams, repair their coaches and respite at the local pub on their way from Glenn Innes to Grafton.
Camp Bucca is situated on the most captivating 2 ½ thousand acres property offering campers over 6kms of magnificent white-water river frontage. Campers will camp with friends, or even better make new lifetime friends, all on the banks of the mighty Nymboida River!
