Shake off the winter blues these school holidays by getting outside and active at a NSW Department of Sport & Recreation school holiday camp.

Departmental spokeswoman Rosemary Davis said school holiday camps were the perfect antidote to today’s sedentary lifestyle.

“Our camps are about green time, not screen time,” said Ms Davis.

“Bookings are now open for school holiday camps at 11 locations across NSW. From adventure camps, cooking camps, fishing camps and even a snow sports week at Jindabyne, there is something for all types of kids these school holidays.

“The camps offer traditional camp activities such as camp fires, archery and high ropes, through to skiing, rock-climbing and canoeing – all under the supervision of friendly and qualified staff.

“Mastering these exciting challenges and meeting new friends in a supportive environment can help children to grow into confident young individuals, and have a lot of fun in the process.”

Sport and Recreation Centres offer day-time and overnight school holiday programs in scenic Australian bush locations for children and young people aged 7 to 16, with winter kids’ camps running from 28 June – 11 July 2014.

The affordable school holiday packages include all activities, accommodation, nutritious meals and 24-hour supervision. Supervised transport is also available to and from most camps.

And if you don’t want to let the kids have all the fun? No problem! There are also family camps for the whole gang, including weekend snow packages in Jindabyne.

For more information and to book, visit or phone 13 13 02.
