Activities have included kayaking days - one around Coochiemudlo and another in the mouth of The Pine River - a walk in the Lower Portals, a bike ride/camping trip around Moreton Island and base camps at the Mt Glorious Barracks. There have also been some more conventional trips including a through walk at Girraween and a swim through day walk at Northbrook Gorge. The children, their parents and other participants have all found these activities great fun.
For the children to participate they must register as a guest member and be accompanied by an adult member ('the carer') that either is their legal guardian (which is usually their parent) or a member who has been authorised by that legal guardian. They cannot be just sent on a trip and hope that some other parent will look after them. Members should nominate for family activities only if they are bringing a child or have been invited by the leader.
Children of members can enrol for up to 12 months; other children (including grandchildren) can enrol for a single activity only, and this can be done twice in a 12 month period.
How to enrol a child for BBW Family activities
Enrol the child as a guest member by first completing a copy of the club's Guest Membership Form
- Sections 1 to 3 for the child's details
- Section 4 - if the child of a member, just tick the '12 month' box, otherwise provide detail of the activity.
- Section 5 - to be read, signed and dated by the member taking the child on the activity ('the carer').
- Section 6 - the child's legal guardian to complete this - read, nominate the carer (who must be a member), sign and date.
Submit the form together with an admininistration fee (cash or cheque, currently $2) to the club either at a meeting or slowly by post - but not to the leader.
If you have any questions regarding this group within BBW or have a suggestion about where you and your children might like to go, please contact our family coordinator via our email firstname.lastname@example.org or find us at a meeting. We look forward to fostering a love of the great outdoors with you and your children.
