Looking for a unique experience for your children these holidays?
Understand the important role; play and nature connection plays in your child’s life?
Our Wild Camp program is for you!!
The holiday program is based on playwork principles and is set entirely outdoors in nature! Children are encouraged to lead their experience and are provided with a variety of play based activities to choose from. Activities offered include: nature connection games, fire craft, whittling, shelter building, nature craft, exploration, primitive fishing, slacklining, swing play, storytelling and camp cooking.
Our wild camps are “drop and go”, children can be dropped off at the designated location from 9:00am and must be collected by 3:30pm. We also offer half day sessions and reduced rates for siblings. Parents are welcome to attend if necessary.
Our programs are designed for the sole purpose of nature connection and operate rain, hail or shine. The maximum amount of children in each group is capped at 16.
There is a ratio of 1 facilitator to 6 children in all sessions. Three highly qualified and experienced outdoor mentors with current First Aid and WWCC are present at all sessions.

Welcome to Nature Play Academy!! For your safety and enjoyment we request all participants wear appropriate clothing and carry a backpack with water, a towel, spare clothes and plenty of snacks. We operate in all weather so rain gear is sometimes also necessary. We have lots of whittling tools and equipment which is checked regularly, we would ask that children leave their personal tools at home for everyone’s safety. We also ask for belongings to be clearly labeled and correctly stored (insulated food storage) as the children are responsible for maintaining and accessing their gear and food.
