Aeonclave Winter 2009 Canberra season

We hope that you are all continuing to grow stronger with the various challenges of 2009.

It has certainly never been a better time to ensure that our children and young people are well equipped with the adaptability, imagination and creativity to face and shape the future!

Aeonclave's Winter 2009 Canberra season offers an unparalleled opportunity for creative experience!

The flagship of our fleet, our specialist SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAM, is a unique experience blending great fun, creativity, child care and education.

  • This Winter in Canberra, Creative Catalyst offers more new visual art workshops than you’ll have hot cups of chicken soup!
  • Vala Club pushes the boundaries of fantasy into a dimension where science and sorcery are virtually indistinguishable, and where super-powers and subterfuge are wielded more powerfully than any sword. Participants will discover secret methods of storytelling from the dawn of legend at the same time as learning contemporary media methods of self-publication.
  • Shifting Sands will continue to bring a fantasy otherworld to life; not only creating 3D visions of it in miniature but also embarking upon a course leading to the animation of miniature figures moving stealthily through its back-alleys, wielding super-powers on the fly above its buildings, and manipulating alchemical essences along with robotic parts in sterile laboratories deep within mercantile strongholds.

PLUS- Aeonclave specialist school holiday programs could be as good as half-price with the new Australian government 50% child-care rebate!:

  • Note well- so long as you ‘pass’ the ‘work test’ etc, even if you receive $0 Child Care Benefit you will probably still receive the full Child Care Tax Rebate (up to 50% back!); the CCTR is not income tested, and is up to $7500/year/child.
  • For more information re. our school holiday program as an Australian government approved service for CCB and the new 50% CCTR go to
