16 Dec 2019

In a world where, let’s be honest, we all seem to accumulate too much ‘stuff’, a Christmas gift of an experience is ideal. We know that experiences are better shared and our gift of family fun is all about spending time together.

Whether you’re looking for gift ideas for a larger family with a sense of adventure or something to gift your own family for a break from the everyday - Holiday Haven has got you covered. From Kangaroo Valley to Ulladulla - our holiday parks have something to offer everyone.

Benefits of Taking a Family Holiday

The Planning

For some, planning a holiday is more fun than the actual holiday (well almost). Our website is full of information about the Shoalhaven area - things to do, places to go. Letting the kids help with the planning process also makes them feel more involved and it helps families bond. Planning a holiday also gives you something to look forward to and makes getting through the boring daily routine easier to handle!

The Journey

Sometimes the journey to your destination is the best part! Short road trips can actually make the ride to your holiday spot as fun and memorable as possible. You can play fun games, bring along books and activities, stop at cool places and check out the amazing scenery. A long journey definitely teaches patience as well as encourages siblings to get along! Our Holiday Haven parks are just 2 hours from Sydney and under 3 hours from Canberra.

Learn Through Experiences

Kids learn best by doing. Reading books and looking at screens is great but nothing beats hands-on experiences to really help a child learn. When on holiday, kids learn through experiences. They can try local produce - even catch their own dinner. These multi-sensory experiences allow kids to gain knowledge in a more meaningful way.

Promotes Family Bonding

Whether it’s hiking to a lookout, watching dolphins or sitting around the campfire, family holidays offer amazing opportunities for families to spend time together. Parents learn more about what their kids like and don’t like while kids learn that their parents are cool after all!

Expands Social Awareness

Family holidays are a great way to expand a child’s understanding of the world around them. Kids step outside their own local area to see how other people live. They also learn how others communicate and engage socially. This helps children gain some valuable social skills. Lastly, while on holiday, it is not uncommon to make new friends that kids can keep for years to come!

Relax and Recharge

Everybody needs some R&R from time to time, even kids. Family holidays are a wonderful way to forget about work, school and the stressors at home and just have fun. Families can relax on the beach, swim in lakes, read under a tree, laze by the pool. No matter what the adventure, you are sure to come home recharged and ready to return to the daily grind.

Try New Adventures

Holidays offer great opportunities for adventure! By trying something new, kids gain a better sense of self. It can also help build confidence. An adventure can range from camping to hiking. Some adventures build motor skills while others help expand social awareness. Either way, trying a new adventure is a wonderful learning experience for everyone!

Gain Insight About Yourself

Holidays often help people learn about what they like or dislike and pushes them to new limits. While on holiday, families not only learn about each other but learn about themselves. When the electronic devices are limited or taken away, kids (and adults) are forced to make choices and try new adventures. This helps them develop a better self-concept and greater self-confidence.
