Can I visit El Rancho for the day? Are activities available?
In the quieter months (May - September, excluding the school holidays) we may have space for day visitors, but you would need to call ahead to check first on 04 902 6287. A day visitor fee will apply. During our peak season (October - April + school holidays) we are likely to be at capacity hosting camps, conferences and events and don't generally have space for day visitors as well.
Day visits just include our free activities like the Playground, Mini Golf and Discover El Rancho (find the clues around camp to solve a puzzle) and you can also book the waterslide for a half hour slot for a small fee. Please note that all of our main instructed activities need to be booked 8 weeks in advance and are reserved for onsite group bookings, not casual use/day visits.
We do hold a free Open Day every year where lots of our activities are up and running for people to try, so we would love to welcome you then! Keep an eye on our website or Facebook pages for details.
