Katapult is the ultimate capture the flag, all-out medieval type battle game with shields, wet sponge balls and huge catapults firing tennis balls up to 100m through the air! The battle field is alive with sirens, forts and battle calls and is a great way to teach students about the dynamics of working together in an ever changing environment.
The youngest recommended age is 10 years. This activity aims for learning outcomes in the areas of leadership, strategy and team building. Katapult is a 3 hr activity, but you can also play a shorter version of 1.5 hrs. However this forfeits the learning outcomes.
Group size: 20-100
Shorter version: $10 pp, $300 min, group size: 20-100

There are multiple rounds with challenges spread around the property. The challenges of Amazing Race test your general knowledge, resourcefulness, perseverance and creative problem solving. Every student is encouraged to use whatever talent he or she has for the benefit of the team. Everyone is needed!

Farm Tour is a fantastic activity for your school camp. Alex is very knowledgeable about all the animals. She will walk or drive you around the beautiful property, giving you an opportunity to get close to the chickens, pigs, cows, goats, donkeys, horses and many more animals that live at Hosanna. The driving Farm Tour (up to 15 pp at a time) takes you further afield in a 1977 open troop carrier – up hills, over ridges, through creeks, in the rough. There is also a walking Farm Tour with a maximum of 25 pp. She will see if you can guess what herbs you are tasting in our organic garden. The farm tour is a fun activity for everybody!

Glow Worm Tunnel
The Glow worm tunnel is an amazing and unforgettable adventure along the abandoned railway line that starts 2 km further down Tunnel Rd from the property to the end of the valley. The tunnel is 500m long and the walk along the track is 2.5 km each way. The glow worms can only be seen at night, so the walk is recommended as an evening activity.
Hosanna is situated 15 km from Mt Warning in its foot hills. Mt Warning can take as little as 1,5 hour up and 1 hr down for the young and fit, or a steady 4 hours for the average. The climb is spectacular, the tracks well maintained and the viewing platforms at the summit offers 360 views to the ocean.
