CAMPS Team Members: Jed and Tyla Elmer

Absolute gems, Jed and Tyla are the friendly voices you’ll hear when you call our office. We first met Tyla when she was working in reception at our doctor’s surgery. Back when they were a family of four, they kindly agreed to help us with a photo shoot and TV ad for another business. Not long after that we bought CAMPS and both Tyla and Jed started verifying sites. Their dedication and sense of detail meant they were first in our list when we expanded our team in 2019. They are both very active on their school’s P&C, and we

Come on our Outback Adventure

The Camps crew at Long Waterhole, Winton – QLD site 486 in Camps 10 It’s always good, but bad, when you return home from a trip! Good to have our big bed back, more clothes to choose from, and see family and friends again – the pets were thrilled to see us, too. It is lovely slipping back into the familiar again BUT I’ll miss not knowing where our stop is for the night, simple meals eaten under the stars, zero housework and although we were researching more than holidaying, it was such a remedy to all the COVID changes.
