Dads ‘n’ Kids camping weekends

Calling all kids! It’s time to pack your bags, grab the tent and take Dad camping on one of these fun-filled weekends away in the great outdoors!
During March and April, Phillip Island Nature Parks is hosting a duo of its popular ‘Dads ‘n’ Kids’ weekends at Churchill Island Heritage Farm, located only 90 minutes’ drive from Melbourne. These weekends give kids a great opportunity to spend some fun, quality time with their Dads and include camping, ranger-led activities across the Nature Parks, and an exclusive night-time excursion. 

The Dads ‘n’ Lads weekend includes an exciting Rockpool Spotlight excursion, while the Dads ‘n’ Daughters weekend features a night-time Koala Prowl. Combine these adventures with teamwork and bonding activities, arts and crafts, beach games and a sand castle building competition, and you have all the ingredients for a wonderful weekend in the great outdoors. 

Mums will have the chance to enjoy a fun filled and active camping experience later in the year when we will be hosting a Mums ‘n’ Kids weekend, so stay tuned for more information. 

Spaces are limited for these great father and child events, so book now to avoid disappointment.
