Wild Imagination is a new alternative to vacation care. Get kids outside, and allow them to spend their school holidays in nature!
These school holiday events are based almost entirely outdoors. Kids will hang out in tents instead of classrooms, play with sticks and bugs instead of pens and paper, use nature in craft activities, build things in the Inventors Playground and (just quietly) have great fun!
These events are for parents who would love their kids to spend more time in nature and those who need full day care for them during the school holidays.
KIDS ONLY EVENTS | FULL DAY | FOR KIDS 5-10 YEARS
Each school holidays, Wild Imagination select a site that offers an abundance of nature to use as the base for their event. They then securely fence the entire site and hire in quality toilets for guests (no portaloos here!) The play space is set up with mud play, nature crafts, loose parts play, and tents that serve as the home base for children.
The kids only events are for primary school aged children. Due to the range of activities planned, it is recommend for kids between 5 – 10 years old. Although children up to 12 years are allowed, they might not find the activities age appropriate, but this is at the parents’ discretion.
