After many years of serving large numbers of different community groups and schools in the Auckland region, New Zealand as well as overseas groups. It is with great sadness that we have had to cease camping at Piha MIll Camp (formally Stedfast Park). Auckland Council who own the Piha Mill campgrounds at Piha, have identified that the location of Piha Mill is subject to severe flooding in the event of significant rainfall in the Glenesk Stream catchment area of the Waitakere ranges. This means that the amount of water and the speed of it would result in the campgrounds being unsafe with the potential for loss of life.
We are hopeful that in due time after Auckland Council have conducted further investigation they will be able to identify, rectify and install sufficient measures to allow the re opening of Piha Mill to once again provide a safe, unique Group facility camp at Piha.
