Family Nature Connection Retreats

Our September 2015 Retreat is now open for bookings!

There are two great things that you can give your children. 
Roots to grow and wings to fly.

As parents we want the best for our kids, and to help give them those strong foundations for learning and for life. But time and time again parents tell us that it feels like the ‘busyness’ of life often gets in the way of having a fun and meaningful relationship with their children.

And do you know how kids spell LOVE?

T - I - M - E

It’s not PRESENTS that your children want from you to feel they’re loved and valued, it’s your PRESENCE. Our Family Nature Connection Retreats are a unique chance to slow down and spend QUALITY TIME with your kids – and being surrounded by Mother Nature is the perfect setting.

You’ll learn what makes your kids tick; simple and fun ways to connect with them … despite your busy life … and make lots of cherished memories for your family.

You’ll also discover how reconnecting with nature can help your children develop those strong roots to grow and wings to soar!

Places are limited to a very small number of families and always fill fast for what will be one of the best and most rewarding ‘gifts’ you’ll ever give your kids, your family and yourself.

Here are just some of the activities and experiences that I'm planning for the lucky families who come along to the retreat.

  • Cubby Building Challenge
  • Screen Time versus Green Time – Striking the balance
  • Connecting Conversations
  • Night Walk / Star Gazing
  • Building Positive Family Connections
  • “Kids Nature Adventure” Report
  • Damper Sticks
  • Campfire capers (and marshmallows!)
  • Big Family Dinner – Tin Foil Dinners
  • Sowing the seeds of learning
  • Up the Creek Adventure (Keep an eye out for the resident platypus family!)
  • Nature Bucket Lists


Here's some of the fun we get up to ...

And here's where we're staying!


Take a powerful step towards nurturing more meaningful relationships with your kids by booking today to come and play, learn and connect during this very special family weekend.
