A School Holiday Program for Vacation Care Centres
An active engaged exploration of the Quarantine Station Site. History delivered through fun - dressing up, role-playing, bandaging limbs, carving inscriptions, & playing old-fashioned games.
Children & their carers will make their way to different stations at different buildings and areas of the Quarantine Station to participate in activities facilitated by our fabulous education guides.
Groups are encouraged to stay after the formal visit to play on our lovely harbour beach, visit the museum & retail shop & enjoy a coffee or ice cream from our little café.
This tour is an active learning experience with much of the visit occurring out of doors walking around the Quarantine Station site. We run the program in all weather (except extreme weather conditions) and will modify it as needed in the case of inclement weather.
Vacation Care programs do not include ghost stories unless we receive written consent from the Centre Director that it is deemed appropriate for children from 9 years old.
"The older children were really interested in the history & asked lots of questions & the littlies loved the beach!"
