Kids’ winter camps Bookings are now open for Kids’ Winter Camps run by the NSW Office of Communities (Sport and Recreation). Camps are a great way to boost children’s confidence, help them make new friends and encourage shy children out of their shell. Camps are offered around the state, including snow camps, fishing camps and cooking experiences. Camp packages include activities, accommodation, 24-hour supervision and nutritious meals. Supervised transport is also offered to and from most camps. For more info go to:
