Event description


How will your kids spend their school holidays?

Do you remember that feeling of waking up in the holidays and not knowing what the day would bring? Days filled with riding your bike, swimming, running, climbing, building and exploring. Of hanging with your mates and tumbling into bed at night after a big day outside?

We reckon kids spend all term inside and that holidays are for playing outside.

Surf Coast Outdoor Adventure Kids (or SOAK for short) is a great alternative to vacation care. Your kids will get to try loads of awesome outdoor activities and play all day in the bush and at the beach.

Every day will be different, that’s part of the fun. Our school holiday program is play based and child led. We’ll follow a loose plan but we’ll make it up as we go along depending on what we find, what we see and what we discover.

They might have a go on the giant swing, cook damper on the camp fire, make cubbies, raft on the Anglesea river or make a net and go yabbying.

'Possum Pete' from Great Ocean Road Coastal Committee will be sharing his amazing knowledge of the Coast, and Parks Victoria Rangers will also join us.

Run by qualified teachers, play workers and environmental educators, the YMCA Anglesea school holiday program is designed to provide your child with a mixture of nature play, environmental education and outdoor adventure experiences.

Being outside and active is good for your kid’s health and wellbeing, but most of all it’s fun. Just ask the kids who played with us last holidays!

“My most favourite part of the day was well….. all of the day.” Olivia

“I loved it all but I super loved canoeing and the smoothie bike.” Beau

“I didn’t know what yabbying was but now I know it’s the best.” Nina

“I want to come back everyday.” Adela

What dates is the program running?

The program is running over two weeks in April (Wed 4 to Thu 5 Apr and Mon 9 to Fri 13 Apr).

Can I just turn up on the day?

No. We need to know who’s going to be at each session. We keep our group sizes small as we believe this makes for a better quality experience. The program is limited to 30 kids per day. If you’ve missed out, give us a call and we’ll contact you if we get any cancellations.

What if it rains or it’s 40 degrees?

We play outside in all types of weather. The only time we don’t play outside is if the weather is classed as extreme. If we need to move the session inside we will. That’s the good thing about playing at Camp. It's fun inside and out!

Will you be swimming?

No. But we will be going to the beach and to the river. We'll be walking to the beach from Camp and participating in water activities including rockpool rambles, canoeing and yabbying.

Is the event suitable for children with disabilities?

Yes, but it's best to ring the Camp to discuss your child’s individual needs.

What's the refund policy?

Any cancellations need to be advised at least one week before the holiday program.

These refunds will be 80% of the ticket price, with 20% withheld for admin costs incurred. Any cancellations after 30 March 2018 will not be refunded. This is a condition of ticket sale.

If you can’t attend and want to transfer your ticket to a friend let us know and we’ll do our best to help.
