Friday 7th – Sunday 9th July 2023
(Site opens 4pm Friday, pack up from 2pm Sunday)
Kum Ba Yah Girl Guide Camp – 333 Mount Keira Road, Mt Keira

A chill wind howls over the escarpment, carrying with it a dread spirit. The words it whispers are the screams of metal and the cries of the wounded. Battle is coming, and we must rise up to save the ones we love. Cold War is here . . .

Join us for a weekend full of Comradery, Fighting and Fun as we engage on the frozen Tundra in the art of warfare.

There will be an Arts & Sciences competition for this year’s Cold War, and the theme is “Winter”.
