“We had a great time, the kids did not want to leave. Next time we will do both the morning and afternoon program”

“My child loved it, We have been to this place many times and also on bush tucker walks but this was perfectly paced and entertaining for the kids. No pressure on the parents. We will do another course/camp again. Thanks”

“Beautifully held, lovely communication with the children, nice mix of games, stories and activities”

“Really enjoyable, informative and very friendly”
