The Australian National Camp is the major event on the Australian Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation calendar for 2019.


Held over four days in October, the camp will be a great opportunity for all members of the Australian Federation to come together in one location to share the art of Soo Bahk Do.

Berry Sport and Recreation Centre

Two hours south of Sydney, Berry Sport and Recreation Centre provides a range of services, facilities and accommodation options. Set on 62 hectares of prime rural farmland on the outskirts of town, Berry Sport and Recreation Centre boasts expansive skies, gently undulating hills and lush green pasturelands. Old farm buildings dot the landscape adding a pastoral charm, while a regenerated forest, chickens and outdoor pizza oven reflect the Centre’s sustainable vision.

All students will be housed together on-site in modern dormitory-style accommodation, set up in a variety of configurations for the three nights of the camp. We will have access to common rooms, meeting rooms, kitchenettes and a laundry. Rooms will be allocated according to the total number of participants; the more students attending, the more options we have access to.


Bedding is not included as part of the accommodation package, so students will need to bring their own pillowcase, sheets and blanket or sleeping bag to keep warm (pillows are provided). To assist those participants travelling from overseas or interstate who may not be able to pack all the necessary items, we have been offered the option of adding bedding for an extra $30 per person. More details about this are below.


All meals are provided for throughout the camp. The first meal will be lunch on the Thursday when we arrive and the last meal will be lunch on Sunday before we depart. 


Meals at the camp will be prepared and served by the on-site staff, however you may be asked to assist with washing-up on a rotational basis (depending on how many of us there are). Special dietary needs will be catered for; once you complete the registration form we will send you a link to the Berry Sport and Recreation Centre Medical and Consent Form where you can outline any dietary requirements.


It is likely we will be sharing the facilities with other groups over the weekend, specifically the dining hall during meal times, so it is important we show respect to the others around us and remember we are there representing our Art.


The camp is aimed at all Soo Bahk Do practitioners, however we do ask that children under the age of 16 are accompanied by a parent or responsible guardian for the duration of the camp.

Q: I’m driving myself to the camp, when should I arrive?

A: The bus from Sydney will arrive at the camp at 12.00pm (noon), so please try to arrive at the same time or you’ll miss lunch.

Q: Will I be able to wash my uniform?

A: Yes, washing machines are available on-site, however you will need to bring your own washing powder and pegs (to hang them up).

Q: Can I bring my own food?

A: Meals are provided for all students, and all food is to be eaten in the dining hall. If you have special dietary requirements you will be given the opportunity to pass this information on to the staff who can prepare meals accordingly. You are welcome to bring extra snacks to keep your energy levels up, however we request students to be considerate of the facilities and other students and ensure they keep their rooms neat and tidy.

Q: I see there is a swimming pool at the Centre, will we be able to use it?

A: Yes – and it’s heated! Make sure you bring swimwear.
