Wet & wild weekend: The Farm
Fri, 23 Feb 2018 - Sun, 25 Feb 2018| $595
Our Wet & Wild Weekend @ The Farm is our original ocean swimming getaway, refined over two years to deliver an awesome adventure-filled training weekend.
Based at Killalea State Park in Shellcove, just south of Wollongong, and including surrounding aquatic locations, you’ll forget the hustle and bustle of home as we develop your skills and you get a taste of wild swimming in all its glory.
This weekend also includes participation in the Wollongong ocean swim event.
The ocean swimming training component alone will combine our Learn to ocean swim, Negotiating the surf and Open water swimming clinic content, and we’ll even hit the pool for an early morning fitness and skill development session.
Wild swims include ocean swims, a river swim adventure, and rest & relaxation swims in scenic coastal coves.
In-between all the adventure, you’ll get to enjoy the chilled out surrounds of the area, meet new friends and toast marshmallows on the bonfire.
This camp isn’t for the city princess though! You’ll be ‘roughing it’ in shared bunk-room accommodation, eating wholesome home-cooked camp food, and sitting around the campfire under the stars!
If you’re a swimmer looking to explore new locations, meet new friends and get out in nature, you’ll be in your element on our wet & wild weekend @ The Farm.
