If the promise of a full day of adventure, just 10 minutes up the freeway, isn't enough... we've put together our TOP 10 reasons why a Day Camp at Woodhouse is so beneficial to your child's development.
1 | IT'S NOT 'OSHC'
It’s a thoughtfully programmed adventure, specifically designed with age-appropriate activities, guaranteed to keep your cherubs screen free, active and entertained for the whole day - and in bed on time that night.
2 | BUILD LASTING FRIENDSHIPS
Free from the usual social expectations, the School Holidays UNPLUGGED program encourages kids to relax and make friends easily.
3 | DEVELOP LIFELONG SKILLS
Trained Woodhouse Activity Facilitators provide the right instruction, equipment and facilities for children to discover and hone their natural talents through a range of different nature-based activities
4 | IN GOOD HANDS
Our team have years of experience working with youth and are armed with the following:
5 | RECONNECT WITH NATURE
Safe exploration of a 54-hectare natural wonderland offers an ideal cure for ‘nature deficit disorder’, enriching your child’s perception of the world and supporting healthy development
6 | GET ACTIVE
With children spending so much time on their electronic devices, a day at Woodhouse provides a wonderful opportunity to step away from the screen and really burn up some energy.
7 | GUARANTEED GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
One very good night’s sleep from a very exhausted (and happy!) child and a lifetime of memories.
8 | ENTERTAINING IN RAIN, HAIL OR SHINE
Every day is programmed with a wet or hot weather contingency plan, so the show will go on! We have several large indoor spaces at our disposal and will simply adapt the programs to stay indoors.
9 | A DIFFERENT THEME EACH DAY
Everything from simulating the digestive system to building a fire; from pitching a tent to blind-folded team building – there’s an activity theme to suit all types. And, running each week day of the school holidays, we’ve got your busy schedule covered too!
10 | 'STRUCTURED' PROGRAMMING
It's so easy to fall out of routine over the term break... but not so easy to get back into! Parents love the 'structure' that School Holidays UNPLUGGED provides, with thoughtfully programmed activities and set meal times worked into an action-packed day of activities... so the kids don't even realise it's healthy for them! This continued structure helps position students to seamlessly slot back into term-life and get the most out of their learning.
