Kids at Goddess Camp

Children are warmly welcomed at the camp and allowed the opportunity for some free range fun. Barefoot Festival has been described as one of the most truly child friendly events!!

Our children’s tickets are great value for money, we will be using every penny towards improving our already excellent program of children’s entertainment.

In previous years we have been making costumes and accessories, face painting, Gingerbread Man decoration, Thai Lantern painting, willow sculpting and so much more and this year is no exception. Feel free to bring costumes and accessories along for your little ones to get into the festival atmosphere. Fancy dress and fun dragons, fairies, pixies, princesses, pirates, monsters, skeletons, damsels in distress… and that’s just the mum’s and dad’s!

On the schedule this year we have plenty of physical activities to tire the young ones out!! We will have the children’s Yoga, look out for Children’s Poi, Hoola Hooping, martial arts, belly dancing and more…

Please note that at all time, parents/guardians are completely responsible for their children and must accompany them at all times. Children’s can only be purchased when a full paying adult ticket is purchased. We have a ratio policy for safety reasons – 1 adult to every 2 children under the age of 12. If you have more children, please bring a friend or other responsible adult.
