The holiday Programme

Our Holiday Programme provides ample entertainment for children during the school holidays. The programme operates from 8am to 6pm, from Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays. We have a mixture of on-site activities here at the Waimarino Adventure Park, and off-site activities making the most of the attractions in our region. Our programme changes each holiday, and some of the fun activities we have done in the past include Mini-Olympics, baking challenges, mountain biking, the cinemas, local hot pools, beach days, laser tag, go-karts, abseiling, kayaking days, as well as all the amazing activities here at the park.

The cost

‘Waimarino Park Day’ (WPD) is a supervised free-play day spent at the Waimarino Adventure Park, playing on all the park activities and equipment.
This costs $55.00 per child, per day; please note this is not on offer during the winter holiday programme.

An ‘Activity Day’ - a structured age-appropriate activity that costs $60.00 per child, per day. Your child will also have supervised free-play time in the Adventure Park after their activity has finished.

An ‘Adventure Day’ - an exciting trip offsite that costs $60.00 per child, per day. Some trips have extra charges to cover costs to cover more expensive transport or activities that we do; we will always advertise these extra charges. The children also get supervised free-play time in the Adventure Park in the afternoon when we arrive back at Waimarino!

We have two age groups - Juniors are aged 5-9 years, and Seniors are aged 10-13 years.  Some activities have extra charges to cover costs of longer trips or more costly activities; we will always advertise these extra charges. The children also get some supervised free-play time in the Adventure Park after their activity has finished.

"This is the first holiday programme that my daughter has come home BEAMING from all her adventures. The staff are so lovely and welcoming. When I picked her up she was having the best time and begged me not to pick her up. Highly recommend!"

Alex V. 

" I Highly recommend Waimarino Holiday Programme. My children have been attending for 3 years now and still say "Yussss!" when it's a Waimarino day. The staff are incredibly organised and onto it; and their enthusiasm for the outdoors is contagious. They've taught my children how to swim safely in the river, scale walls like monkeys and drift in carts like pros. We are always greeted with beautiful smiles from the staff and usually pouts from the kids that are gutted to leave at the end of the day. We love it here so so much!"
