Bushrangers - Shelter Challenge - Autumn 2024

Event description

The greatest alternative to screen time!

Led by our experienced team of Bush Rangers, children will enjoy a day of wildlife, bushcraft, outdoor challenges, games and free play, all in the great outdoors of Centennial Parklands. Activities are designed to allow children to play outside and to take part in problem solving and cooperative challenges. This program is a firm holiday favourite and places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

This program will focus on the theme 'shelter', and will involve learning how to make a shelter from large sticks, bark and other natural materials. We'll test to see if your shelter keeps you dry during the water test and also take a walk around the park to see how other animals make their shelters.


Special Notes: 

This program will go ahead in all weather unless it is unsafe to do so (high winds, thunderstorms), so please come prepared. Children must wear enclosed shoes. 

Our drop-off school holiday programs have an adult to child ratio of 1:10. We are unable to offer a 1:1 support for children. If you would like to discuss the needs of your child with us, please email education@gsp.nsw.gov.au or assist us by completing the accessibility requirements and behavioural needs questions when registering. 

This is a drop-off program for children aged 5-12 years. Parents do not attend with children. 

A $50 late fee applies for children not picked up promptly by 4pm. 

Come Prepared: 

Ensure your child comes prepared for a fun-filled day at Centennial Parklands. 

  • Please ensure your child has lunch, snacks, and a refillable drink bottle.
