School Holiday Program
Kids gone Wild Navigation and Orienteering adventure
Do the kids go a little wild over the School holidays?
Send them to our ReWild School Holiday Workshops, Kids gone Wild for a unique day of fun and adventure in the bush.
Our School Holiday workshops are designed especially for kids. They will learn wilderness survival skills, reconnect with nature and have a heap of fun at the same time!
What we do during the workshops.
We meet at the 3 Wishes Farm Homestead where we have some intro games and talk about general safety before heading out into the bush.
To begin our adventure we cross a bamboo bridge over the Tweed River and head to our bush camp.
On the way we do activities such as identifing useful resources in the environment and play some sensory awareness games to get everyone to focus in on the environment around us.
Once at the bush camp we break for morning tea, do some more activities and head down to have lunch by the Tweed River.
In Summer we often have a swim, so pack some swimmers and a towel.
Then it's time for afternoon activities before heading back to the homstead to meet the parents.

Wild 2 - Thursday 14th January 2021
This workshop is all about life skills as opposed to "survival skills". We discover a range of skills used daily by ancestral people from all over the world.
We cover topic's including:-
primitive hunting, trapping and animal tracking methods
We'll try to trap and release fish, eel's and yabbies from the river
look at bird traps, snares and a range of traditional weapons used worldwide by our ancestors
Spear making activity - your child will be given a comprehensive knife safety lesson. They then harvest, de-bark, sharpen and then fire harden their very own spear to keep (if it's ok with parents that is ;))
*No live traps other than catch and release fish traps are used during the day, so no harm whatsoever is done to local fauna.
*Suitable for kids aged 7 - 14 yrs
