For nearly three decades the QCCC Mapleton Summer Families program has catered to long days of fun and fellowship in the glorious Sunshine Coast hinterland. Once again it returns for another run in the summer of 2010/11.
The holiday program involves some teaching, lots of leisure time and a day-long kids program that keeps them heartily entertained. The ‘normal’ day starts with a time of worship/devotions for adult and children groups followed by a full day of activity for the children.
The children’s program takes advantage of the many outdoor education activities at the Mapleton Centre and is led by Mapleton’s team of outdoor education. It’s an exuberant schedule including archery, bouldering and climbing wall, some of the high ropes elements, sports, wide games and an evening program of games.
With children occupied adults are free to enjoy the many wonderful facilities at QCCC Mapleton. Adults can relax by the pool and catch up with friends, have a sauna, wander the rainforest trails on the 35 hectare property, take in some shopping and the cafes a short stroll away in Mapleton or simply enjoy the peace to read a book or play board games with the other guests.
This is a fully catered camp so the hassle and stress is taken out of feeding the family. Just stroll up to the dining room for sumptuous meals prepared by the Mapleton catering team and let someone else worry about the dishes.
Each family enjoys their own room and/or cabin so vacancies can fill up fast – but at the moment there are still a few spots available, particularly in the week directly after Christmas (commencing Boxing Day).
Holiday Program runs from the 26th of December 2010 to 5th January 2011 and then the 10th to 16th of January 2011. Contact QCCC Mapleton for bookings and tariffs.
