Adventure Park – Family Fun Day

On Sunday 30 January Very Special Kids hosted our first family event of the year! Families supported in the Barwon, Grampians and Southwest Victoria regions reunited for a Family Fun Day at Wallington Adventure Park for a fun day roaming the grounds, enjoying all the rides and activities on offer.  

The Adventure Park has hosted Very Special Kids Family Fun Day for over a decade. This year, 120 attended, the kids enjoyed splashing in the water, and going on all the rides, most not leaving until the last possible moment!

Families have reported a very successful day at the adventure park, sharing their feedback on the enjoyment the day has brought to their whole family. Read some of the positive feedback parents had to share about their day: 

 “I loved the activities and the chance to talk with other families.” 

“Since losing Jonah, it’s a way my family remain connected with him.  It’s also a pleasure to meet other families and build long lasting friendships where we can all support each other.  It’s a great day out to simply have fun splashing around and enjoy a day away from grief.” 

“It was great to have the chance to do something fun together!” 

“The friendships we continue to make within Very Special Kids to know we are not alone.  It’s a great day out were we all can enjoy a ride, waterpark or just hang out away from grief. It is now our annual event for us as a family to enjoy.” 

“I am not in a position to afford this once yearly trip for my boys without the support of Very Special Kids.” 

“Very organised, staff and volunteers are available if needed. Lots of fun for all the family” 

“To make family memories, enjoy an outing with family that we normally couldn’t do” 

“Fun day out for the whole family, nice to catch up with the faces behind Very Special Kids, who help our family, not concerned about having all of our medical equipment with us because the staff and volunteers are around.”
