Walk, run, climb and ride; Adventure Kids weekends are an opportunity for the entire family to escape the city and experience some hardcore outdoor sporting fun.

Tailor made especially for kids aged 4 to 12 with an emphasis on participation - not competition - kids can push themselves physically and mentally though the daredevil obstacle course, try bush running and learn new skills such as fly fishing and outdoor survival skills.

Adventure Kids weekends are action packed to ensure kids leave with a sense of having accomplished something amazing.

Get muddy and wet on The Obstacle Course (Mt Baw Baw and Lake Mountain Festivals only). The pinnacle challenge for every adventurous spirit, participants will need to 'cross the raging torrent on some fallen logs, crawl through a dark and muddy cave, use the aerial cablecar to reach the other side of the valley and climb to the top of the nearby summit to scope out the way forward.'

Forget about running around an oval or jogging along city streets, fill your lungs with fresh air and enjoy the ultimate, back to nature experience – Trail running! Leap over rocks and tree roots, slide across gravel and enjoy open pastures.

Adventure Kids can also try bushwalking, fly-fishing, mountain bike riding and tightrope walking across the Slack Line.

There's even orienteering and Geo-caching for the truly adventurous.
Learn Bush Crafting, from basic survival skills to how to assist someone injured in the bush, Bush Art, Damper making, and participate in the Junior Rangers Program.
