Homeschool Camp is a 3 day, 2 night event and my favourite event of the whole year. I love watching the children grow in independence, build beautiful friendships, and challenge themselves.
This year camp will take place over the September holidays From Monday 19th September – Wednesday 21st September. Suitable for children 7 – 16 years
If you don’t think your child is ready for sleepovers you are welcome to drop them off each day and pick them up at night.
The Jungle Ropes course is ideal for first time and younger participants. Also named Ringtail Ropes at our Boulder Centre, this activity features challenges that focus on being fun while still providing a thrill!
Everyone loves archery! Strong light recurve fiberglass bows, and aluminium blunt point arrows make it easy for young archers to practice outdoor archery. Learn to hold the equipment, draw, focus and aim for the target. Who can get a bullseye?
Recently built at Maranatha Yandina, Jacob’s Ladder is a 10-metre-high climbing activity. Working in a small team to pull themselves up this suspended ladder and no man gets left behind. A fantastic activity for encouraging teamwork. Gets harder the higher you get!
TOWER OF TREMBLE
The Tower of Tremble is all about team effort to build as high as you can. Two climbers are supported on belay by their team members to build a trembling tower of creates. Working together the team passes up crates to the climbers who are building the tower.
RIVER RAFTING OR CANOEING (River Rafting will be for older students)
This is a team activity in building your own ‘river worthy’ raft. A great activity for a group to work together planning, designing, communication and constructing a raft from scratch. Grab some pontoon floats, ropes and planks and build a ‘river worthy’ raft to race against the other teams. What better setting than our beautiful and private stretch of Maroochy River.
Canoeing. Enjoy a paddle in beautiful Wappa Creek. Groups will learn basic skills and manoeuvres in a canoe.
The giant rocket ball sling-shots are permanently fixed into the ground. Aim the balls at the targets and try to beat the other team. This is fun for all ages.
A superb bush walk starting from our very own stretch of the South Maroochy River (aka Wappa Creek).Starting at camp and following the bush tracks leading to the Wappa Falls and Wappa Dam. En route, you’ll hear some stories about the local ecology and history. The Dam Hike is about group cohesion and environmental appreciation.
Splash about and have fun in our 25M Saltwater Pool. All supervisors possess First Aid, CPR.
Enjoy a mix of different activities ranging from night games on the oval, a night bush walk, marshmallows roasting, damper making, Billy tea
flint and steel fire lighting and more!
