9th to 11th of July 2018
For the first time, parents can join the fun! If you want to get involved, you can sign up as a "Parent Helper" and pay a heavily reduced ticket price (that still includes tent and meals), to join in and assist with the groups, challenges and games.
Day 1: Drop off at Bradfield Park, underneath the Harbour Bridge. We’ll transport all the kids camping and extra clothes over to the island while they head off with their instructor on a scavenger hunt to the botanical gardens, opera house and surrounding area, before catching a ferry to Cockatoo Island mid afternoon. For our first night of camping, we've got marshmallows around a fire!
Day 2: Let the games begin! We'll be on the island all day, where we have lots of cool activities planned and further clue hunting to solve the puzzle. We’ll be taking the kids through the tunnels, sheds and old convict areas learning about the history while having heaps of fun. That evening, camping again with a movie night.
Day 3: We're almost there! We'll finish solving all the clues with further activities and a major ‘auction’ happening after lunch. We’ll pack up and catch the ferry and train back to Bradfield park for parents to collect.
