Our program is the perfect opportunity for your child to try their hand at something new in a supported, recreational environment!

* Please note the sports listed above are a summary of all activities available. These rotate each day and we are unable to offer all activities within one day. Additionally, planned activities may change without notice due to weather, staff or facility availability.

Our outdoor artificial surface Rock Climbing wall is 10m high and has five routes ranging from easy to challenging to suit any skill level. Rock Climbing may be cancelled with minimal notice in adverse weather conditions. For further information regarding safety and maintenance, please visit our Rock Climbing webpage.

Prior to the commencement of the aquatic activities, all children will undergo a 25m swim test through shallow and deep water. If the child cannot adequately complete the swim test, they will be required to wear a lifejacket for the duration of the aquatic session. Please ensure your child brings appropriate swim wear, goggles, towels, thongs and a bag for wet items. There will be time for children to quickly rinse at the conclusion of the aquatic session.

All aquatic sessions are supervised by qualified lifeguards, in addition to the Activity Leaders participating in the water with their allocated group.

Please note our pool is a regular lap pool (shallowest point is 0.95m) not a child’s wading pool so please consider whether your child is a capable swimmer who is confident in deep water before registering for our program.
