Finlay Park Activity Rotation Option 1:

If your groups are smaller (18 – 20) we can sometimes combine them and have them compete against each other in certain activities, like sling shot paintball as shown in this example.

Each activity will also need some parent helpers. This is for safety and to keep cost down.Finlay Park staff will provide the required training and ensure that teachers and parents are totally confident to run these activities
