28th March (Sat) - Edgemen Campout 2020
(+optional Friday night)
Take time out, unplug from modern technology and spend quality time with your kids. The Edgemen are offering fathers the chance to spend some dedicated time camping out at Yanchep National Park......
Saturday 28th March - Arrive from 12pm Saturday, leave before 12pm Sunday.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update - March 22nd
With the new information announced today regarding gatherings of any size, regrettably the campout is now CANCELLED.
We received a response from Yanchep NP and I'm happy to report that we've been refunded which will be passed on ASAP. As mentioned before this goes against their own terms and conditions so this is a fantastic gesture.
Thank you for all the messages of support both on Facebook and PMd over the last few days and we hope to restart our events soon.
** BOOKINGS CLOSE MIDNIGHT 25th MARCH **
Yanchep National Park is located 30kms north of Edgewater via a turnoff just after Yanchep Beach Road. We are camping on Henry White Oval, inside the national park. Notify the staff at the park entry station that you are with the Edgemen and they will guide you.
SO WHATS THE GO?
The event is designed to offer a unique camping opportunity so participants are encouraged to bring along their favourite activities and games to play, as you would on any traditional camping adventure. It will be a great opportunity for Edgewater fathers to meet, socialise and enjoy the park's facilities. Be as interactive as you would like or just do your own thing. A few fun, light activities may be conducted however the focus of the event remains directly on fathers and their kids.
As with any normal camping trip, please bring along all your food and drinks. BBQs are very closeby.
Fees are $15 per adult and $3 per child payable via the button below.
$13 Park entry per car payable on arrival (or $23 for an annual pass)
**ALL SITES ARE UNPOWERED**
This year we’ve secured the actual campsites, not the oval free-for-all like last year. Tents, swags and rooftop/awning tents are preferred - campervans, small caravans & camper trailers are also permitted. The campground has flushing toilets, showers, picnic tables and gas barbecues. There is a sealed road to access the campground. Unfortunately campfires are not permitted due to the season, no pets are allowed and generators are not permitted as we're on grass.
Yanchep National Park boasts a free koala boardwalk, an abundance of kangaroos, 9 bushwalking trails, bike trails and free BBQs everywhere. Crystal Cave is a very short walk and tours are available. There is also the 'Trees Adventure' rope and zipline experience taking you from 2m to 25m high at $48 per adult, $38 per 8-17yo and $25 per 4-7yo.
