Snow Lake Mountain 5th of August or 26th of August


Good Morning Fellow Single Parents Active Kids how are we and those ripper kids?? Yep massive day yesterday with a few phone calls and E-mails to those that were on the list for 15th of July and obviously the bus company and the company we have a great deal to hire the gear from. As a result of these conversations here is the end result:

  • 5th of August snow day trip has gone from a 28 seater to 57 seater, as of last count there are 19 spots available, so yes we are well over the 28 mark.

  • 26th of August snow day trip in a 28 seater is now an option with already 3 on that list. Talking to Rosemary at the place we are hiring the gear from it has been a late start to the season so those concerned will there be snow on the 26th of August, according to the experts nothing to be concerned about.

Good Afternoon Fellow Single Parents Active Kids how are we and those amazing kids?? Always very exciting to promote new camps, new opportunities to get together and have a great adventure. I am trying something very different where the 2 options are 3 weeks apart, the thinking for those that go on the first of the 2 options, if they enjoy themselves so much (which i bet the will), they will have the opportunity to go 3 weeks later.

Saturday 15th of July (last Saturday of School Holidays) or Saturday 5th of August, please when you rsvp let me know which date you would like to go on. Changing your mind later on may mean you will miss out, so please be sure in your initial reply.

$100 Per person (this is based on 28 seater if we look like we are going to get closer to the 50 mark, that price may come down and we will then book a 57 seater bus), for that amazing price you get:

  • Toboggan, pants, gloves and boots each. Please if you have your own gear let me know asap (in your initial rsvp the preferred method), for each item you have the cost is approximately $5 less (to be confirmed), also less confusion at the hiring place where they will not have items ready for those that already have theirs!

  • Bus trip from Ringwood to the hire place to Lake Mountain to the hire place back to Ringwood. The bus is ours all day, so you can leave your food and so on in there.

  • Entry to the snow.

When we come back from the snow, we will be starving, Daisy’s Restaurant has got a great play area. We are using their car park so it is a way to reward them for their help.
Please when you rsvp to one of the dates above, let me know straight away if you are coming to dinner or not. By doing so it cuts down on E-mails, I would not have to ask are you coming to dinner, sounds simple and convenient hey??!
If you are not coming to the snow you are still more then welcome to join us for dinner, just as per normal rsvp a minimum of 2 days before the event.

We will meet at Daisy’s Car Park in Ringwood (Maroondah Highway Side), info below, by 9 am sharp, the bus will take us to the place we are hiring the gear from, we will then head and enjoy Lake Mountain for 4 hours of tobogganing, snow person (lmbo, politically correct term apparently) and more. We will return and drop off the gear we hired and then head back to Daisy’s car park where we can go into the restaurant and have dinner.

Daisy’s Car Park, Ringwood, 6 Mount Dandenong Road, 49 K8

9 AM:
I can’t make this point any clearer, if you are late you will miss out (unfair on all the other members that made the effort to get there on time), so leave 20 minutes earlier then you normally would, we want to maximise our fun at the mountain.

The bus is for our use from 9 am oh so sharp through to about 5.30, about the time we get back. If you want to bring your lunch or a bag you are more then welcomed to leave in the bus.
28 is the maximum numbers allowed, no matter how old your child is, they still count as 1.

$100 Per person, if you have your own snow gear the cost will be cheaper, please read on.
The camp host fee is included in the amazing price above.
Will need a host for both dates, those members will only pay half the amount due, so if you have one child instead of paying $200 you will pay $100 and so on. The host will have a massive role to play on the day itself, all the the other work is done by the camp administrator ( Me Moush), to get this info to you there has already being a few phone calls and making sure all the info is there that you may need in this E-mail, clarity is so important in what we are trying to achieve.

Bus trip up and back.
Entry to Lake Mountain. 4 hours at lake mountain is more then enough.
Toboggan, Waterproof Pants, Gloves and Boots (I will be asking for boot sizes much closer to the camp, makes the process at the hiring place much quicker and smoother, effective efficiency) each person. You are responsible for the gear you hire, for example if you lose a toboggan you need to pay for it, about $70 from memory, so please keep a very close eye on your and your kids equipment.

If you want to hire these please do so when we stop at the place we have built a rapport with over 7 years. The cost is approximately $10 per person, please do not pay this amount to single parents active kids pay this on the day to the wonderful ladies that look after us so well.

Final payment by Friday 30th of June for 5th of August, or negotiated via E-mail

Final payment by Friday 18th of August or negotiated b y E-mail.

If you are struggling to pay on time, please let us know a week before payments are due via E-Mailing

Your Own Name, Snow, Single Parents Active Kids bsb 033073 acc 412883 Please when you make any payments have your name and description with your payment and at  E-mail me on

I would highly recommend taking your own, the bus stays with us for the duration of the day.

$100 per person to enjoy 4 fun filled hours up at Lake Mountain, you don’t have to worry about chains, petrol, slippery roads or anything like that. Your main concern is to get your rsvp’s in asap take note of when payments are due and the rest will be done for you by single parents active kids. All you need to do is turn up by 9 am and enjoy, now that is the beauty of single parents active kids, the organisational work is done for you.
These days at Lake Mountain are a lot of fun, we have done them since the start of our amazing organisation and can’t see any reason to not give all members another opportunity to enjoy.
