This October kids need to discover the location of Sarah Leigh’s loot (a real life notorious gangland figure of the 1950’s Sydney). They do this by completing outdoor challenges and problem solving activities. Through this your kids will learn leadership and team work skills plus discover how to understand risk, make safe decisions and to appreciate diversification in one another’s personalities and skill sets.
During the camps the days are generally broken up into 4 separate periods of activity - and plenty of rest is provided for lunch, morning & afternoon tea. Initiative based activities are built around team building and problem-solving and have one instructor for a maximum of 15 kids. For rafting, snorkeling, swimming or sailing there is a minimum of one instructor per 10 kids with specialist, certified instructors leading these activities.
