Speak with Katrina when booking on 03 5237 9246, and book under your own name, saying you are with the Home Education Network.

On the Wednesday night we are planning on a ‘Mad Hatter Dress Up Dinner Party’ @ the Camp Kitchen. Bring along your Alice In Wonderland Outfits and food to share.

There are plenty of independent activities to do from and around Bimbi Park: Bushwalks, Beachwalks, Beach Swimming, Cape Lighthouse Tours, Horse Riding, Rock Wall Climbing, Mini Golf and Outdoor Cinema which we are hoping to get operational one night.
All activities at Bimbi are casual and can be organised with the mob at
Bimbi when at camp.

Horse Riding will happen on Tuesday the 21st of March.
They are only able to take small groups at a time up to eight, but are
willing to do a ride in the morning and a ride in the afternoon.
If anyone else is keen to go again or there are larger numbers they are
happy to talk about doing it again on the Wednesday.

I will speak to the people at Cape Otway Light house about tours and have
information for you at camp.
