Spring Beach Youth Camp is owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. As a Christian camp it is expected that groups conduct themselves in a manner that is respectful of our beliefs and respectful towards local residents and the Centre's property and facilities. The camp property is an alcohol, smoke and illegal drug free area.
The payment of a deposit invoice by the hirer and the return of the Booking Agreement constitutes confirmation to hire the camp on condition of acceptance by Spring Beach management.
Full payment is required 14 days from date of final invoice. Late payments may incur an additional fee.
If a booking is cancelled less than 90 days prior to the scheduled date, the full deposit is forfeited. If more than 90 days notice is given, the deposit, less an administration fee of $50, will be refunded.
Smoking, alcohol, illegal drugs, pets (except guide dogs/assistance dogs), knives, firearms, fireworks or explosives of any kind are not permitted on the property.
The Hirer must ensure it has adequate public liability insurance cover with respect to the loss of or damage to property and for personal injury to any member of their group. Organisations using the facility must provide evidence of current liability cover prior to the camp. The Hirer shall indemnify the Seventh-day Adventist Church (Tasmania Conference) Ltd against any loss of or damage to property and claims by any person against the Seventh-day Adventist Church (Tasmania Conference) Ltd in respect of bodily injury, personal injury or death or loss of or damage to any property, arising out of or in connection with the Hirer’s use of facilities, providing always that the Hirer’s liability to indemnify the Seventh-day Adventist Church (Tasmania Conference) Ltd shall be reduced proportionally to the extent that the act or omission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (Tasmania Conference) Ltd, its employees or agents, may have contributed to the loss, damage, death or injury. Damages caused apart from wear and tear will be charged to the group.
