Dads and kids to spend the night on Leeuwin

In partnership with the The Fathering Project, dads and kids (11+) are invited to take part in a unique overnight father-child experience on board the STS Leeuwin ll, Australia’s largest sail training tall ship.

The Fathering Project is an Australian organisation that aims to improve child development outcomes by engaging and encouraging fathers to be the best they can be. Dads and father-figures have a profound impact on the wellbeing of children and The Fathering Project aims to inspire and equip dads to be there for their kids.

The Fathering Project ‘Dads Group’ Program hosts activities and events throughout the year that are designed to bring dads and kids together in a fun, friendly and supportive environment.

To support The Fathering Project and their fantastic initiatives, Leeuwin Ocean Adventure is hosting an overnight dockside camp for dads and their children (aged 11 years and older) on board STS Leeuwin II. The first camp was held in November 2019 and was a resounding success. 

With the support of the crew on board to facilitate a safe, supportive and incredibly fun environment, fathers and children will enjoy a unique experience and create lifelong memories together on this amazing overnight camp!
