Marsden Bay Christian Camp is situated at the mouth of the beautiful Whangarei Harbour. An easy 90-minute drive north of Auckland, roads are sealed all the way to the gate. It is located on eight hectares of grounds, and is across the road from a safe swimming beach.

We have a range of Accommodation options, from Bunk rooms, to Family rooms, Cabins and Tent or Caravan sites. The ablutions are second to none, and the modern, well laid out commercial kitchen is the envy of most camps.

Whether you are looking for somewhere for your next School camp, training weekend, family reunion, youth camp, or team building exercise, Marsden Bay has the facilities to make your stay one to remember.

In this website you can find out more about the site, accommodation options, and our indoor and outdoor facilities.

"What I love about Marsden Bay is that the sea is so close, and the location is perfect for going for walks. The facilities for running camps and kids activities are fabulous. The new block is wonderful, as it is so comfy for the leaders. It adds to the wonderful environment that is Marsden Bay."
