What Are Adventure Programs?

What Is it?

This holidays, Teen Ranch is providing day programs for young people from school ages Year 4 to Year 12. Each day will be separate from each other, campers will arrive from 8am and be picked up by 4.30pm. The cost per day is $90 which includes three activity sessions, lunch and morning/afternoon teas. Of course campers can come multiple days if you wish, however there are limited places.

Each day is set up with a specific activity program for each age group. All you have to do is select what day and what program your child wants to attend.

If you're keen for a more specialised activity program, we have three specialised programs:

Ranch Riders - an entire day of horse activites, ranging from pony for a day, horse care, arena riding lesson, trail ride, and a mini Gymkhana (all age dependent).

Between activities or in small pockets of free time, we've got a whole range of sports to enjoy; volleyball, cricket and basketball and more.

 

 

Your children are in good hands

All activities are fully guided and supervised by qualified Teen Ranch staff who are experienced in their various specialised areas. All staff are qualified to provide First Aid.

 

Camper Expectations

To help ensure that all campers and staff have a great holiday program, we do have some simple rules that are outlined to campers at the beginning of each day. Essentially these are to respect fellow campers, respect the staff and respect the equipment and property. We ask that campers do not bring their mobile phones or devices with them (not only is it a distraction from the great outdoors, but we are not liable for lost or damaged property). Teen Ranch has a strict no-alcohol, no-drugs and no-smoking policy.

We’re COVIDSafe!

Teen Ranch is a registered COVIDSafe business and have implemented multiple COVIDSafety Plans. Here are some things that you experience in light of COVID-19:

Upon check-in, each camper will be temperature checked and asked basic screening questions (e.g. have to travelled to Victoria in the last 14 days? Do you have any flu symptoms? etc.)
P
lease note, campers will not be allowed to attend if there are any flu symptoms, high temperature or answer yes to screening questions.

Campers will be required to practice good hand hygiene – frequently washing and sanitising hands as well as good cough & sneeze etiquette and physical distance (where possible).

Activity equipment is frequently cleaned & sanitised and each activity group will have no more than 20 campers.

Don’t be scared of the staff….we’re a good looking bunch but we’ll be covering up with face masks for the safety of everyone!

What to Bring

We recommend that each camper bring a day bag that contains:

  • Drink bottle, sunscreen & hat
     
  • Enclosed shoes (only exception is water-based activities)
     
  • Long pants for horses (campers will not be allowed to ride wearing shorts)
     
  • Swimmers incl. a rashie/t-shirt, thongs/slides & towel (for water-based activities)
     
  • Change of clothes, including enclosed shoes (if participating in water-based activities)
     
  • Rain jacket (just in case, rain won’t stop us from having fun!)
