WILD CAMP (School Holidays)
Looking for a unique experience for your children these holidays? Appreciate the value of establishing a connection to nature in childhood? Understand how vital play is for your child's health and well being? Our Wild Camp program is for you!! The holiday program is based on playwork principles and is set entirely outdoors in nature! Children are encouraged to lead their experience and are provided with a variety of play based opportunities, ideas and resources designed to inspire and engage.

Activities offered include:
  • nature connection games,
  • fire craft,
  • whittling,
  • shelter building,
  • nature craft,
  • exploration,
  • primitive fishing,
  • slack lining,
  • swing play,
  • storytelling and
  • camp cooking.
Our wild camps are designed for children aged between 5-12 yrs and are “drop and go” day camps. Children can be dropped off at the designated location from 9am and must be collected by 3:00pm. We also offer half day sessions (9am-12pm) and reduced rates for siblings. Parents are welcome to attend if necessary. Our programs are designed for the sole purpose of nature connection and operate rain, hail or shine. The maximum amount of children in each group is capped at 16. There is a ratio of 1 facilitator to 6 children in all sessions. Three highly qualified and experienced outdoor mentors with current First Aid and WWCC are present at all sessions.
