Guests are able to use the basketball court for unstructured play
outside program times. This is a shared facility, so if two or more
groups are onsite we ask you to share usage of the court. The basketball
court is fully floodlit for use after dark.
Adjacent to the office, on the other side of the service road, is the
tennis court. The tennis court hosts some of our team building
activities. Therefore, these have priority over unstructured usage. The
tennis court is a shared use facility. The tennis court is fully
floodlit for use after dark.
12 metre swimming pool is home to our pool games program. It can also
be used outside program times. Please contact centre management if you
wish to schedule times to use the pool exclusively, as priority is given
to pool programs at all times. Leaders and supervisors must ensure the
pool is adequately supervised at all times. We recommend the hire of an
Aquatic Supervisor (who holds both an Aquatic Rescue Certificate (ARQ)
and Senior First Aid) to supervise children and weak swimmers in the
pool. If supplying Department of Education staff for pool supervision,
it's essential they have a current Bronze Medallion or ARQ. All school
aged children require supervision with a ratio of 1:32.
Swan River is approximately 170 metres from the centre and hosts our
paddling and raft building programs. The natural sandbar allows
participants to venture a fair distance from the shore and still be in a
safe and accessible environment. Dolphins are regularly seen during our
raft building and paddling programs. East along the river is home to
the Alfred Cove Marine Park, holding various attractions.
In between the main office and dormitory
areas is a large open space area perfect for unstructured play or group
games. This open parkland is great for kicking the football or a game of
cricket. Please be aware that at certain times of the day some of our
programs may be running, therefore, access to these areas may not be
possible as they will receive preference.
