Vacation Care Program April 2021

This vacation care we are excited to be running Adventure Patch’s fourth overnight camp for children from Kinder to Grade 6.  This year we will be staying two nights at Rivers Edge Camping Grounds at Lonnavale – in TENTS. Fun activities include raft building, making rope bridges across the river, fishing, star gazing, treasure hunt using GPS’s and codes, shelter making along with the ever-popular toasting marshmallows by the campfire


Spaces are limited so book in quick by emailing [email protected]


While the camp is on (Tuesday 13th, Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th of April), we will only be operating three services:

  • St Aloysius and Kingston children will attend the St Aloysius service
  • Blackmans Bay and Illawarra children will attend the Blackmans Bay service.
  • New Town as per usual

The same process to book in to any vacation care on these days applies: use the app to book into a day you require. On the day, simply turn up to the relevant service listed above.

All other days outside of the camp days are as per each specific service vacation care programs.
