School groups: The Huntly Karioi Trust initially built The Karioi Lodge in 1973 as a school camp. Years later and it still retains the essential characteristics that make an ideal school group venue. There are ample opportunities for fun and adventure and outdoor activities for kids here! Daily beginner surf lessons, sports barn, bush walks, and wildlife viewing make outdoor entertainment a breeze for school groups.
