Camp Australia’s cold weather activities

News Image

This year Camp Australia will launch of its winter E-magination holiday program with a range of activities for kids and parents to choose from.

“We have some fantastic activities incorporated into this winter holiday program that have been ‘approved’ by our kids throughout the term. We like to test any activity we have planned with our kids and make sure they give the tick of approval. Ozobots were a big hit – a fun activity that teaches basic coding skills through an interactive robot that follows the path you lay out," said Tom Dusseldorp CMO of Camp Australia.

“We also have circuitry activities, candle making and clock making to bring out kid’s creativity and motor skills. Additionally, our holidays are always jam-packed with an array of sports and games to keep kids active and bond over team activities. We also have more excursions than ever and a huge variety of local activities that vary by state."

“We do extensive surveys throughout the year and speak to thousands of parents to find out how we can support their needs of care. Most feedback we get is about the lack of options during the holiday period. Care from children moves from a few afternoons or mornings a week, to needing something to do for full days over holidays that can be two weeks or more,” said Dusseldorp.

Camp Australia currently operates in over 280 sites around the country. The company started looking after children in holidays over 30 years ago, running a leading sport camp, and has expanded its experiences to include all kinds of activities designed to entertain and occupy children during school holidays. https://www.campaustralia.com.au/
