General Notes

One child per adult in shared accommodations. The adult is responsible for the supervision of their accompanying child at all times. This program is an intergenerational run Down Under-style. There are not separate programs for grandparents and grandchildren; rather grandparents and grandchildren are encouraged to bond through shared activities.
