Arcadia has beefed up their extra-curricular activities on offer in 2019 with the newly imagined 'Camp Calliope'. Named for the daughter of Zeus, eldest of the muses, Calliope is associated with laughter, entertainment and light. The camp will provide a second home for punters over the May long weekend. Whether you're an Arcadia three-peater or new to Goomburra Valley it's a great opportunity to explore & meet new people.
A schedule of inclusive activities and diverse workshops will run throughout the weekend. Make a doof stick to ensure your crew can find you among the sea of heads at any time of the day or night. Limber up and find you centre before a day of dancing with Sunday morning yoga. Flex your creative muscle by making a own kite before sending your creation high above the Arcadian fields, adding to the visual landscape of the festival. Race other teams through the gorgeous festival grounds into new territory to locate cryptic clues and be the first to complete the inaugural Arcadia scavenger hunt. Give those dancing feet a rest and flex that creativity for awhile at a landscape drawing workshop. Plus Jungle-pong, a glitter station and Arcadia Olympics make sure that there is something for everyone!
Bring your crew, a gold coin donation and join us at Camp . All materials are included and there are prizes and bragging rights on the line!
A range of interactive games will also be on offer throughout the weekend so you can settle the score with old and new friends alike. Camp classics like horseshoe and cornhole line up alongside twister, ping pong, giant dice and many more.
