After school club

Our After School Club runs from 2pm to 6pm from Monday to Friday during the school term. We collect children after school has finished and bring them back to the Waimarino Adventure Park for an action-packed afternoon of fun. Your children are provided with a nutritious and delicious afternoon tea, followed by heaps of exciting activities and free play.

Every day we offer a different selection of our Adventure Park activities, mixing things up each day to keep everyone busy and experiencing new things. Activities on offer include swimming, kayaking, rock climbing, pedal boating, fishing, diving boards, the Tarzan swing, drift trikes, and much, much, more!

Beat The Traffic With our Free bus service

We are now offering a FREE bus service after school each day so parents do not need to battle the traffic getting to us.

We are meeting parents at the staff carpark of Bethlehem School on Carmichael Road between 17.20 and 17.30 Monday to Friday.

"The after school is a great place for active kids. There is plenty for the little ones to do with excellent supervision."

Stewart Simpson

Waimarino has such a range of activities that the kids have no chance to be bored and always learn new skills. The staff are always keeping on eye on potential issues arising amongst the kids and the inter personal skills they learn are mind blowing...they actually care about the kids development both physically and mentally.
