Foxton Bible Camp has been operating for a number of years as a location for family camps and Youth Camps. it is a particularly safe site for families and has amenities suitable for all ages, including dormitories for young people, over 30 separate cabins for families, and a separate 2 bedroom tourist flat for separate hire.
The grounds have been developed to enable camps to be contained
on-site if they wish. The local area is also ideal for camps. The
ocean beach is less than a half hour walk from Camp and the river
estuary only minutes away. The Manawatu River Estuary draws visitors
keen to see the 2000 birds and up to 58 species known to flock there
over the northern winter and is a stopover
for many rare and migratory birds.
Foxton township is being developed as an historical town and offers
horse-drawn tram and trolley bus rides, Dutch windmill and museum,
and an Audiovisual Museum.
Foxton Beach School
is the site of an astronomical observatory.
