"We thought the holiday programme was fantastic. My 3 girls had the best time and it was really neat to see them come home each night dirty and happy!!!"
"She loved it so much! She enjoyed how the coordinators created things. She told me that they taught her “anything is possible” after seeing the creations and ideas like making swings and zip lines and bubble blower. She came home so inspired!"
"My children absolutely loved it. They loved toasting marshmallows, going in the steam, the waterside, making bow and arrows. All of it!"

Neighbouring the centre is Huntleigh Park Reserve which is an impressive area of indigenous forest that we explore regularly.
