If there’s something we love…its dogs! For the long weekend of 30th September to 3rd October, if you have a four legged best friend, then get your bags, bones, squeaky ducks and walking boots on because The Outdoor Adventure Camps is organizing a few incredible days of bonding for you and that waggy tail.
Located 60km from Sydney in Hawkesbury Valley, the whole family or just you and that faithful Fido can enjoy an idyllic hug-it-out and exercise extravaganza. The organizers have planned a few days of activities including bush walks, hiking, pet agility, safety demonstrations and water activities. Be involved in all events or maybe just pick a couple…the choice is yours. There will be market stalls with food for you and an abundance of most likely peanut butter treats for your whipper snapper. Entertainment includes evening music, sing alongs around the camp fire (remember those before smartphones stole your sense of nature?) and just gorgeous calm settings.
Plan ole school and bring a proper paper book to relax with, or show your pet new tricks with throw and retrieve sticks. Dig around in the dirt and let them get their little noses filthy from fantastic outdoor smells.
It’s also a brilliant way to meet new people and if your pet is in training stage, you can learn tips on how to control them around other dogs. Maybe you’ll chat with a fantastic local who you can share dog sitting time with when either of you are on holiday.
The trip will only take an hour by car to arrive at the destination but you’ll feel a world away from the hubbub that Sydney offers. Don’t worry, the mayhem and madness will still be there once you return but you’ll now be fully recharged to get back into the throes of city life again.
