Camp Gregory was opened as a veterans retreat in 2010. Before then the camp was a place where Veterans from the 1968 National Service Intake (including friends and family) would gather through 'word of mouth'.
Camp Gregory Veterans Retreat has come a long way since its early days - We now include all First Responders as part of our veteran family. Without a doubt the tireless voluntary assistance of the veteran community has made Camp Gregory Veterans Retreat what it is today.
