As a Mercedes College staff member, Mother & Daughter Camp organiser and a parent of the College, I am always looking for something different every year for our mums and daughters to experience on Camp.  As most mums are very set in their ways and don’t really want to leave their ‘comfort zones’, it is always tricky finding the right median for a camp like this!

It was by chance and luck I found Surfpoint and Cape to Cape Explorer Tours !!  After liaising and discussing our specific needs for camp with Alison at Surfpoint and Gene from Cape to Cape Explorer Tours, I was very pleased to see that they were more than willing to accommodate our mums and daughters with whatever we needed to ensure the camp is a success.  The willingness of staff at Surfpoint Resort where we stayed, to make sure our stay was comfortable and all our needs seen to was overwhelming and very much appreciated!

The professionalism, friendliness and enthusiasm of the Cape to Cape Explorer Tours staff was amazing and made our mums and daughters feel comfortable, safe and keen to take on anything activity and challenge thrown at them.

It is my job to make sure the Mercedes Mother Daughter camp runs smoothly, safely, and value for money.  As this is the first time Mercedes used Surfpoint and Cape to Cape Explorer Tours, I have no hesitation in recommending both companies to other schools who plan on camps such as ours.  The mums and daughters were so happy with everything, that I have booked Surfpoint and Cape to Cape Explorer Tours for our 2015 MD Camp.  Well done Alison and Lynley from Surfpoint and Gene, Drew and the rest of the Cape to Cape Explorer Tours staff….we will be back.

Comfortable beds, some with ensuites, tea/coffee facilities.  And we don’t have to dig a hole, make a fire and cook what we caught for the night!  A healthy dinner is awaiting to be served and the best part, we don’t have to do the dishes.

Those mothers that I spoke with were very happy with what the camp had accomplished for them and their daughters.  Our guides were outstanding.  They not only coordinated the activities safely, but they encouraged, guided and educated us to amazing natural wonders and the dormant abilities within each of us. 

An amazing experience and I feel very privileged to have been given the opportunity to attend.  If ever there was a “priceless” moment, this weekend was it for my daughter and myself.

Well done Mercedes.

Surfpoint – What a fabulous place to stay.  The staff made us all feel so welcome and wanted us to feel right at home.  Thank you.  Awesome camp.

Cape to Cape Explorer Tours  – What a great bunch.  The enthusiasm shown by Cape to Cape Explorer Tours staff was unending.  They had to deal with all sorts of people in all sorts of fear-inducing environments and not once did their enthusiasm waver.  Highly recommend this company.

We both had an amazing time. All the hosts were wonderful and very knowledgeable.  I would definitely recommend this location and activities to everyone.  I didn’t realise there was so much more to Margaret River than just wine tours.

Surfpoint: The accommodation was very comfortable with great facilities and the staff were very friendly and helpful.  The catering was fantastic and the common area provided a great opportunity to mix with fellow guests. 

Cape to Cape: The activities were very well organised and professionally run.  My daughter and I had a wonderful experience with all of the activities which is a testament to the friendly staff.  I would recommend Cape to Cape in the future and will fondly remember this camp as an awesome weekend away from home with my daughter.

Kind regards,
