    A picnic by the river with a visit by Father Christmas. The kids can play, swim, canoe even sail if they wish, while the adults relax and chat on the beach or maybe a game of frisbee or cricket.  You can arrive by bike if you wish.  There are BBQs there or BYO salads and snacks.  Sometimes held in the morning sometimes in the afternoon but always a pleasant way to spend the best part of a day under the shade of the peppermints.  There is a cafe nearby for those wanting a coffee or ice cream.  Bring something under $10 to give to Father Christmas for him to give to your child.

    The club might be able to extend  the booking (i.e. 5 nights to 7/ 8 nights), closer to the time.


    Torbay is an annual Club event held at Camp Kennedy (Torbay) on the south coast west of Albany (http://www.albanybaptist.com.au/camp-kennedy.html ). Families rent and stay in separate huts and share a large hall, kitchen, shower/toilet and dining facilities. If there is enough of us, and there usually is, the Family Bushwalkers, take over the camp to exclusion of others.  It is a special absolute beachfront holiday in the last week of the school holidays. Past activities at the camp have included Concert Evening, Quiz Night, walk, swimming, canoeing, boogie boarding, fishing, mountain biking, coffee drinking at local cafe, etc.  As in previous years, the site is deemed alcohol and smoking free ..

     

     Indicative costs are: $18.00 per person per night, $12.00 per 4 yrs-15 yrs per night, 3 yrs and under free. The commercial kitchen and cool room are off limits this year onwards.  The outdoor cooking, fridges and BBQ area is what we'll use from now on - bring your eskys and engels as space may be at a premium. Check-in time is 3.00pm and check-out time is 11.00am.


    There are between 2 and 11 beds in each hut and we allocate one family per hut.  The huts have a bed base and mattress but little else – they are basic.  Shared kitchen has everything including plates, cutlery, pots, pans, stoves, fridges – but not T towels and washing-up liquid.  Dining hall has tables and benches.  There is a massive undercover BBQ.  We are expected to clean-up during our stay including the communal showers and toilets.
