If for some reason, you cannot go camping during the school holidays, why not come down to Herdsman Lake Wildlife Centre and get into the swing of camping and campfire cooking activities! You will learn how to cook your own damper, pop some popcorn and toast those marshmallows over the fire while your parents can relax with a billy tea or coffee. This event is suitable for children 6 years and over.
