Taking time away from busy responsibility has become an act of guilt. Here at Rumpus, we see it as an act of political resistance. The culture of busyness doesn't serve us, our community or our world. We need to find play and connection and bring it back into our lives. Jamboree Creative Escape is an immersive kickstart of creative play, of forest and nature, of connecting with people, of reflecting on learning, skill building and practicing crafts that make us feel good.

nested in the lush environs of Mt Keira

Mt Keira, or Geera in local Dharawal dialect, is known as Grandmother Mountain. It is a place of magic, of deep forest, and is the home to our weekend retreat, at a rustic, quirky Scout Camp.
Stepping into the site, out of the car park, and you are in the midst of giant gums, lyrebirds, native flowers, mountainous rocks.
