Intermediate Holiday Camp
April 12 @ 8:00 am - April 15 @ 4:00 pm$379
The Adventure Camp in the Easter school holidays 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.
During the 4 day/3 night camp, we are taking 3 groups on a journey through the World Heritage Listed Wet Tropics rainforest. There are many amazing places to explore in Paluma Range National Park.
What we do
The Adventure Camp will see 3 groups of 15-20 kids plus their instructors and group leaders moving from one camp to the next.
Each group gets to spend a day playing on the high ropes course, learning how to climb and safely belay others. They also get to scale the walls and roof in our climbing cave. We will make sure the adrenalin will be pumping once we get them to jump off the 12m Leap of Faith and launching them into the air on the Glider Possum.
The fun does not stop here. We have a big hike ahead of us, walking 17km from the Adventure Centre to the DCK Shelter, situated in the middle of the rainforest, where we set up camp for the night. Along the way we come across old tin mining sites, tricky creek crossings and Big Crystal Falls.
“Outside your comfort zone is where you grow”
The next morning, we leave early to hike to Paluma Dam, where we spend the day indulging in water sports. After kayaking and stand up paddle boarding on the dam, we are cooking burgers for lunch and then test out our knot tying skills in the raft building challenge. Two teams will race each other to the other bank and back again, let’s hope the rafts hold up all the way to the finish line.
We set up camp at the dam and cook dinner on the camp fire. After telling camp stories and roasting marshmallows for desert, we test their leadership skills and team work on a night walk through the rainforest.
The next morning, we get on the mountain bikes and ride 17km back to Paluma. We will have a well deserved lunch and if the kids have any energy left, we will play one big game of archery tag with the other 2 groups.
