Camp Quality ACT Family Christmas Parties
With a busy couple of weeks over, it’s time to reflect on the three Christmas Parties the ACT office hosted for our local and regional Camp Quality Families.
Central West Family Christmas Party
On the 28th of November the ACT Camp Quality office hosted our Family Christmas Party at Lake Burrendong Sport and Recreation Centre. With a group of 50 people, including our Central Western NSW families and volunteers, Lake Burrendong was the perfect location! We were able to splash around in the pool, enjoy the tennis courts, cricket on the grass, craft activities, and a slip n slide to top it all off.
We would like to acknowledge and thank the Rotary Club of Wellington for suppling food and cooking a delicious BBQ for lunch.
Riverina Family Christmas Party
On the 5th of December the ACT Camp Quality office hosted our Riverina Family Christmas Party at the Red Stag Restaurant and Deer and Emu Tourist Farm. With a group of 45 people, including our Riverina families and volunteers, the Deer and Emu Farm at the Red Stag Restaurant was the perfect location, with our kids being able to feed and pat all the reindeer and emus, as well as various other animals.
The day started with all the families and volunteers being picked up by our mystery bus in Albury and Wodonga, with no idea of what was planned for the day. After a fun bus-ride down into Victoria, we arrived at the farm with the excitement from the kids shown on their faces as they were able to hand-feed 'Santa's reindeer'.
A delicious lunch was provided by Red Stag Restaurant and ice cream to help the kids cool down in the 30C+ temperatures. After a refreshing water fight, Mrs Clause arrived to present the kids with their Christmas presents before boarding the bus to head home.
Canberra Family Christmas Party
On the same day, we hosted our Canberra Family Christmas Party at Big Splash. With temperatures in the low 30C's it was perfect weather for all the families and volunteers that attended.
We would like to thank Big Splash for accommodating our large group of 150 people and for catering the event. Those there on the day were treated to endless fun on the slides and in the range of pools. We were also treated with a delicious BBQ from the Big Splash staff.
We would like to thank all the families that made it to the event to celebrate another year with Camp Quality, and we wish those who were unable to make it a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing everyone during 2016!
