School Holiday Program

From Families to Families / School holiday program

Winter & summer school holidays / 8-14 year old children

We noted an increased demand in our community for an extended school holiday program. Day activities are provided at different locations during the school holidays, but it is still hard for families to find a provider that offers overnight school holiday programs. Several families working here at Allambee Camp have school aged children and we consequently do understand the difficulty in juggling work commitments and family during school holidays. We therefore offer families an extended school holiday program during summer & winter school holidays.

This program is designed for children aged between 8-14 years and previous programs were up to 5 nights long. We do understand that not all children feel the same about going away from home, so we are open for bookings just for the day, for several days or for the full program.

We do believe that our “From Families to Families” program will help families with work and other commitments and also give the children a great opportunity to grow as a person, discover new places, make new friends, explore new activities and allow them to become more independent in a safe and supervised environment.

Our school holiday program usually includes outdoor adventure activities at Allambee Camp as well as excursions. In the past we have visited places such as Healesville Sanctuary, Walhalla, ice skating arena in Melbourne and Melbourne Star. The days are usually very busy & full of action!

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 with a group situation. Please note that we do not provide 1:1 care.
