Wet & wild weekend: The Palms

Fri, 12 Apr 2019 - Sun, 14 Apr 2019


Our Wet & Wild Weekend @ The Palms is the ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle of real life. You’ll hike your way deep into the park, where a phone signal is rare, and spend your weekend wild swimming in beautiful scenic locations.

Based at the Burning Palms surf club, right on the beach, by day you’ll take walks in the park to wild swimming locations and train at the beach, and by night you’ll enjoy down-time sitting on the deck over-looking the beach, with a bright night sky above – bliss.

The ocean swimming training component alone will combine our Learn to ocean swim and Negotiating the surf clinic content, and if conditions suit, we’ll include a rock swimming component.

Wild swims include ocean swims, a river swim adventure, hikes to the figure eight pools and a unique lagoon experience.

In-between all the adventure, you‰’ll get to enjoy the chilled out surrounds of the area, meet new friends and enjoy a drink overlooking the ocean.

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 carrying your own gear on every adventure.

If you love the idea of hiking and swimming your way through nature, challenging yourself in wild swimming locations, and meeting new friends, then you‰’ll be in your element on our Wet & wild weekend @ The Palms.

Please view our wet & wild weekends for more information, including FAQ’s & dozens of testimonials from happy wild swimmers.
