School Holiday Program

22-24th of January 2018

Summer school holiday program / 8-14 year old children

We noted an increased demand in our community for an extended school holiday program. Day activities are offered in different locations, but it is very hard for families to find a provider that offers overnight school holiday programs. Children just love to go to camp, enjoy outdoor adventure activities and spend some time outdoors playing with friends. Most of the time camps and outdoor adventure activities are only available to groups and not families, so individual children can’t participate. We therefore decided to open up our camp twice a year for an extended school holiday program, during summer & winter school holidays.

The program we offer is designed for children aged between 8-14 years, 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.

Our next school holiday program in January 2018 will include 3 days of outdoor adventure activities here at Allambee Camp. Summer is the best time to enjoy the outdoors and activities such as High & Low Ropes, Abseil Tree, Giant Swing, Flying Fox, Archery, Raft Building, Bush walking, Hut Building, Geocaching and much more. Your child will have the opportunity to participate in these activities during the day, followed by night sessions in a safe and supervised environment.

Dates: Our program will run from Monday 22nd to Wednesday 24th January 2018 with the option of staying either the first night or both.

Activities: Included but not limited to Flying Fox, Archery, Giant Swing, Low Ropes Course, High Ropes, Billy Carts, Raft Building, Bush walking, Hut Building, Abseil Tree,  Geocaching and much more.

All camp staff that will look after the children have Working With Children Check Cards. Our instructors are trained and experienced in running all our outdoor adventure activities. Also our family lives on site and together with our staff we are there to look after the children 24 hrs a day.

If you would like to go ahead in booking your child in please complete the Registration & Consent Form, then sign and send it back to us. The camp fees can be transferred into our bank account and your child’s/children’s spot will be secured as soon as form & payment have been received. We will also send out an email with more information regarding your child’s/children’s camp closer to the camp dates.

We do believe that this program is suitable for children as young as 8 years, but the children need to be able to shower etc. independently and feel comfortable in a group situation. Please note that we do not provide 1:1 care. Please make sure your child is independent enough to follow safety and other instructions at all times.
