Adventure Island

Adventure Island

9th to 11th of July 2018

Are you ready to take on the ultimate holiday adventure? Adventure Island is a step up from our regular Adventure Camp.  We're taking the kids on a 3x day, 2x night camping trip out to Cockatoo Island, this camp will include tougher challenges, more initiative activities, more teamwork tasks and above all, more fun! Your kids will learn some great outdoor skills and break out of their comfort zone - making new friends along the way. The best part is we'd love parents to come and give us a hand and we've got a heavily discounted price if you can make it.
We'll delve into the history of Sydney and Cockatoo Island and race around to solve the clues of an all new Adventure Story!
Each camp ticket includes meals (except lunch on Day 1) & tents - all you need to do is bring your sleeping bag, clothing and your sense of adventure.
We're reducing group size numbers down to 10 per instructor with a parent helper. For this camp to go ahead we'll need a minimum of 25 kids booked in. So please spread the word.

Parent Helpers

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. 

Camp Details:

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.
