No - Woodhouse is open to EVERYONE! Proudly owned by Scouts SA, we often refer to Woodhouse as being ‘the cellar door for Scouting’. Each of our facilitated programs offer you a little taste of the types of activities you would enjoy at Scouts… essentially being screen-free, making awesome new friends, getting outdoors and being active!

We will be there every step of the way to help learn some cool new skills, you do not need to have prior knowledge of the principals. 

As above, you don’t need to be a Member… but it helps! Scouts pay a special member rate of $50 per day, general price is just $65. This price covers:

  • Full facilitation (generally a 1:9 staff to child ratio)
  • Delicious and nutritious, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea (dietary needs catered to. We are nut free)
  • Use of Challenge Hill (weather permitting)
  • Equipment
  • One very good night’s sleep from a very exhausted (and happy) child
  • A lifetime of memories

Our team have years of experience working with youth and are all armed with the following:

  • National Police Check
  • DCSI Clearance
  • Catholic Education Clearance
  • Senior First Aid
  • Child Safe Environment Training
  • Mandatory Notification Training
  • Safe Food Handling

Groups are generally split in age groups 5-9 and 10-13 (some days there is a 3 age group split) to ensure the activities match abilities and everyone has a great time with an appropriate level of challenge.

We will keep the kids entertained rain, hail or shine! Every day is programmed with a wet weather contingency plan. We have several large indoor spaces at our disposal and will simply adapt the programs to stay indoors. Of course, a little water never hurt anyone so, where appropriate, we will continue outdoors as planned. If it is too wet, Challenge Hill will not be included in the activities for the day.

Once your space has been reserved, the payment is non-refundable. However, you are welcome to transfer the booking to another child for the same day.

If (for some bizarre reason) minimum numbers are not met, the day camp may be cancelled with a minimum of 48 hours notice given. A full refund will be provided in this instance.

Please note:

  1. Woodhouse Activity Centre is closed if there is a Catastrophic Fire Danger Rating.
  2. The facilitated day camp may also be cancelled if the temperature is forecasted above 35 degrees in Piccadilly, or if management declares the site/activities to be unsafe due to particular weather conditions.
  3. We will notify you two days prior if cancellation is to occur and a full refund will be issued.

The children will be outside whenever possible, so please dress appropriately.

  • Closed toed shoes
  • Long pants
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen! (though this will be re-applied throughout the day)
  • Full change of clothes, including shoes
  • Named drink bottle
  • In a back pack
  • Any required medication or medical action plan)
