This vacation care we are excited to be running Adventure Patch’s fifth overnight camp for children from Kinder to Grade 6. This year we will be staying two nights at Orana Girl Guide Camp at Lauderdale. Fun activities include raft building, beach games, paddling, fishing, challenge valley, star gazing, treasure hunt using GPS’s and codes, shelter making, along with the ever-popular toasting of marshmallows by the campfire.
The Program for the camp is based on the children’s ideas that have been gathered through conversations and brainstorming with the Adventure Coordinator during the term.
Adventure Patch is offering the Opportunity for 24 children to participate in a completely outdoor camping experience. All children and educators will be sleeping in tents. The tents will be provided by Adventure Patch.
Children will get messy and try new challenging activities. Children may scrape their knees. Children will get wet. Adventure Patch will be offering the children at camp opportunities to cook over an open fire. The children will have the opportunity to cook meals, marshmallows, damper and popcorn over the fire with the utmost importance of safety around fire taught. But one thing is for sure – Children will have fun!
A detailed list of what children need to bring will be given out at a later date with the confirmation of your place at camp.
At all times, Adventure Patch will be maintaining ratios (or better) and will have risk/benefit assessments in place for the day and night. This includes all COVID19 requirements for sleeping arrangements, hand washing, social distancing and cooking of meals. further information is available upon request.
