Get out and get going


So let's get to the basics.

Why is it being run?
To get teenagers out there and doing something active.

Who is it for?
It's open to all teenagers currently attending highschool and/or living in the moreton bay region. If you have younger kids and are looking for something for them to do, see my article about the Active Kids program running at the same time for 3-12 year olds.

When is it on?
Times do change but for the 2014 July School holidays its running from June 30 to July 11 on weekdays. Times are different for each activity.

Where is it happening?
The easy answer if you live in the Moreton Bay region is 'coming to a location near you', but the more detailed answer can be found on the website.

There are is a huge range on offer including inline hockey, tenpin bowling, archery, slacklining (like tightrope walking), Survivor Challenge, laser tag, abseiling, parkour, rockclimbing (indoor and outdoor), sailing, Laser Skirmish, break dancing, skateboarding and believe it or not a lot more as well.

Who is running them?
All activities are delivered by experienced and qualified staff.

And now for the most imoportant Questions.

How much and how do I book?
Prices are varied but since it is a subsidised program you can expect to pay a lot less than if you arranged it yourself. Some examples for the July Holidays are $5 for Bowling, Slacklining, Survivor Challenge or Ice Skating. $10 for Inline Hockey, Laser tag, Tennis, Parkour or Sailing. $15 for Abseiling or Mountain Biking. The cheapest is free Skateboarding and the most expensive is $20 Glass house Mountains Rock Climbing (including the bus trip)
