School Holiday Program

Tuesday 8th – Thursday 10th of January 2019

Allambee Camp is a family owned and operated camp located 13 km south of Yarragon in West Gippsland. With 3 children of our own, we know what activities children love to do during their school holidays. Give your child/children the opportunity to experience an adventure in the outdoors with same aged children. Why not book in for our next school holiday camp?

What is a school holiday program?

Our school holiday program is a 24 hrs fully supervised action packed 3-day / 2 night stay at Allambee Camp. Experienced camp staff run outdoor adventure activities with the children in a safe environment. This includes lots of fun and hands on activities such as:

Abseil Tree, Archery, Billy Carts, Bouldering Wall, Flying Fox, Games, Geocaching, Giant Swing, Hut Building, Initiative Course, Low Ropes Course, Vertical Challenge (High Ropes), Race Around the World, Raft Building, Rock Painting etc.

Supervised evening activities such as night walk and games are also part of the program.

What do children gain from this program?

Research shows that children who participate in adventure-based programs grow in independence, interpersonal relationships, leadership, self-confidence and self-esteem.

For which age group is this camp?

The program we offer is designed for primary school aged children from Grade 2-6. Your child can stay for 1 or 2 nights. We do believe that our program will give children the opportunity to grow as a person, make new friends, explore new activities and allow them to become more independent in a safe and supervised environment.

Please note:

We do believe that this program is suitable for children as young as Grade 2, but the children need to be able to shower etc. independently and feel comfortable in a group situation.
