Major activities require a Special Activities Permission Form (SAPF) to be filled out and signed by your parents for each activity that you are allowed to do.

PLEASE NOTE:  If you miss your booked session time for any of these major activities, your place may be given to someone else.

Just released - we have a new activity this year - Giant Beach Ball!

VG is big,  now we have beach ball to match.  Not being too cryptic but it is giant.  How big can a ball be?  A normal beach ball is 43cm in diameter, our beach ball is 297cm in diameter, it's 7 times bigger, it's huge.  Play a giant game of Beach volley ball,  see it rove around the site.  Have a ball tossing it around.  Just be careful you don’t get squashed!

Don't forget the Saturday night theme of Superheroes - dress up to win prizes!

Some people were able to choose two major activities when they booked in.  This was an error which has now been corrected.
