it was their ultimate dream to create an american style summer camp here in Australia

Sam and Jon Bell, owner/directors and husband and wife team, had the ultimate dream to create an American style Summer Camp here in Australia. Camp Blue is the reality of this dream, providing exceptional programs in Sydney Australia since 2010.

With a vast background in the sports and leisure industry, and a true passion for working with kids, the duo have gathered a wide spectrum of skills and experience from across the globe.

Following 6 years of summer camps in the US, Sam moved to Croatia to help create an international American Style Summer camp for European children. Upon returning to Australia they both came to the realisation that the local vacation care sector was crying out for a dynamic program to keep kids engaged, whilst providing a safe and trusting environment.

So in 2010, the dream turned into a reality… Camp Blue was born.

Sourcing staff members with who fully embody and represent the same core values and vision, Sam and Jon managed to create an exceptional team, who deliver continually outstanding programs.  For the Camp Blue Team, camp is so much more than just a ‘vacation care’. Camp is a family. A family that plays an important role in camper and staff development and progression.

At Camp Blue, we understand what it is to entrust the care and development of your children into a new environment, and we aim to make this as easy as possible for you and your camper/s. It doesn’t take long to feel part of the CB Family!
