BlazeAid's senior management, following the recent Ulladulla area COVID-19 contact, took the tough decision to close the camp Milton down immediately.
The decision was made to protect the group's volunteers and the farmers they closely work alongside.
BlazeAid is a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods.
The group has a zero-risk policy when it comes to protecting people and the decision to close the camp was not a NSW Health recruitment following the recent local COVID-19 contact.
Jill and Keith Hill had recently taken over as coordinators of the Milton camp and hope to get back to their work as soon as they can.
The coordinators fully support the decision made by BlazeAid's senior management.
Mr Hill said they also remained fully committed to helping local farmers rebuild their fences.
He added the work had been going well and the volunteers had been making a major difference when it came to helping the farmers.
"It [closing the camp] is a major blow to the farmers," Mr Hill said.
Mr Hill said once they get the all-clear it would not take long to get the camp back up and running.
The camp, based at the Milton Showground, had a strong mix of backpackers and retirees in the mix.
BlazeAid, after almost six months in the district, had helped nearly 90 local farmers re-establish their boundary fence lines that were damaged or destroyed in the fires.
Much of the work in recent months has been performed by overseas backpackers who stepped into a void created by an exodus of grey nomad volunteers who left when lockdowns were looming in late March.
Help from BlazeAid is still needed as over 120 local farmers are still registered as needing help.
Mr Hill said they remained 100 percent committed to helping local farmers and they looked forward to getting back on the job as soon as possible.
