My 11-year-old daughter and her friend had such an amazing day and are desperate to go again! When I asked them what their favourite activity was – Canoeing, High Rope or Archery – they couldn’t answer as they loved them all! It was highly rewarding that they got to spend the day challenging themselves with activities that they had never experienced before. The staff were all really helpful and friendly. Everything activity is explained thoroughly in advance and safety is paramount.

What to take?

Water bottle – there are several water fountains around the centre to fill up the bottle throughout the day.
Sunscreen – good to take your own although the instructors do carry around a big bottle with them and they do remind the kids to keep reapplying.
Enclosed shoes plus a spare pair – enclosed shoes are a must. If your child is doing canoeing or commando course during the day they will get wet. Particularly with canoeing, the kids are allowed to swim in the river but are not permitted to take off their shoes so I’d advise taking along a pair of reef shoes for that activity.
Bathers and a towel – again if canoeing is part of the plan then bathers and a rashie are a good idea as they will have the opportunity to swim.
Spare change of clothes – make sure they are old clothes as they will come back filthy!
Snacks and lunch.

The Swan Valley Adventure Centre is located at 58 Yule Avenue, Middle Swan. The Adventure Day activity program runs during the school holidays. For the latest information visit www.swanvalleyadventurecentre.org or call 9374 5600 during office hours.
