Paluma Adventure Camp Easter 2019
April 15 @ 8:00 am - April 17 @ 5:00 pm$300
Paluma Adventure Camp
15th-17th April 2018
The Paluma Adventure Camp is designed for kids (10-15 years) who love the outdoors and would like to learn more outdoor skills in a fun and safe environment. This camp is for kids who have already done one of our intro camps and would like a bit more of a challenge or they already have prior outdoor experience (hiking, mountain biking, kayaking) and would like to join us. We also welcome juniors this camp, who will have a slightly different itinerary
Home base will be the Outer Limits Adventure Centre and from there we will explore the many amazing places Paluma National Park has to offer.
We will spend some time playing on the high ropes course, learn how to climb and safely belay others and scale the walls and roof in our climbing cave. And to top it off we will make sure the adrenalin will be pumping once we get the kids to jump of the 12m Leap of Faith and get them launching into the air on the Glider Possum.
The next day we split into 2 groups and Hike and Bike into the Paluma Dam. The Bike team will get there for lunch and spend the afternoon Kayaking and Stand Up Paddling on the dam. The Hikers take most of the day to complete the tough 17km hike to the dam. We all “bivouac” in an open camp that night (no tents – sleep on a tarp) before swapping over the next day, Hike/Bike and heading back to Paluma and home to Townsville in time for dinner and a comfy bed!
The Juniors will explore the many beautiful waterfalls around Paluma village along the close by hiking trails by day and by night (yes we will go for a night walk without lights). We get to return to camp every night and get to sleep in tents. Weather allowing we will have an outside movie night under the stars.

- High Ropes + Leap of Faith & Giant Swing
