Are you frantically running around trying to find a last minute gift for your kids, but have no idea where to start?
Are you feeling frazzled after a long year of juggling your family commitments with your responsibilities at work?
Do you just want a few peaceful days to yourself to do what you want to do for once?
Well, we can solve all of your problems with a click of a button. This Christmas, rather than buying your kids toys that they’ll just forget about in two weeks anyway, why not gift an experience? And by an experience, we mean Summer Camp!
In fact, research has actually shown that ‘gifting experiences’ rather than material items actually makes people happier in the long-term – both the giver and the recipient.
According to Brad Elphinstone, a lecturer of psychology with a speciality in materialism at Swinburne University of Technology, returning to the festive roots of Christmas lies in the ability to spread cheer and joy through experiences, rather than the more traditional concept of gifts.
Summer Camp is the perfect example of how beneficial experiences can be, especially during the formative years of your child’s development. In a world dominated by the online sphere and video games, it’s all too easy for children to spend their childhood indoors, rather than gaining new skills and meeting new people by heading outdoors.
Here at Cave Hill Creek, we believe in giving kids a taste of the great outdoors in the way it’s meant to be experienced – in person! As a completely switched-off camp, the only tech that’s taken out on our camping trip is emergency communication devices. For four nights and five days, your child will spend the New Year enjoying a combination of water and land-based activities that include bush walking, canoeing and raft games.
