Come along and enjoy and participate in:
Storytelling and Poetry: stand-up fun with words your chance to present your own writings or your favourite poems
Yoga: Start Saturday and Sunday mornings with Restorative Yoga with Jim Small. Jim has been on a 25 year journey with yoga; initially as cross-training for football, and currently as a teacher. Jim seeks to meet all students as they are, and offer something that will extend them individually as well as unite them. Come and stretch your aching bones and start the day feeling good. No experience necessary.
Blind Date: put your name down to join a band led by a guest artist – practice a song to perform on the main stage
Silver Beaver Lodge: – pre-concert dress-up party – this year’s theme is “Waifs and Strays”
Uke Choir: – A conducted community ukulele experience enabling all
levels of players to participate with ease. Brought to you with energy
and support by Angelfish. Come and learn the different parts of an
Angelfish song and perform it with us in the Sunday concert. It is a
great way to learn, and so far removed from traditional teaching, as
you’ll be strumming and singing rather than slowly picking your way.
Angelfish delivers tiny instruments and enormous voices so you’ll be
increasing your skills as well as having fun uke playing and singing.
Three practice opportunities to hone your skills and tunes.
1) Waterslide and trampoline
2) Swimming hole – lets hope the weather is good and the water not too swift. Please supervise ALL children of ALL ages, at ALL times.
3) outward bound course – for parents and older kids alike. Situated at the end of the rugby field.
4) Flying fox – tie those pony tails up …For the older ones only.
