The Aerogard Great Gran & Grampout

Camping holidays with different generations of the same family is an increasingly popular trend. It’s called Gramping! It is a chance for grandparents, grandkids and parents to spend quality time together and make special summer memories.

Aerogard wants to spread the word on Gramping this summer by encouraging you and your family to get out and enjoy the outdoors, by organising The Aerogard Great Gran and Grampout.

The whole family; Grandpas, Grandmas, Mums, Dads and Kids can camp out in their own back yard, or a camp site (turu has plenty to choose from), and enjoy important quality time, of course mozzie free. Parents can put their feet up, whilst the grandparents can spend more time with their grandchildren - passing on the same stories that they passed onto their children.


What is the Great Gran and Grampout

On the 30th of November you can host your own Grampout at home, or your favourite camping spot, or join Aerogard at the show case event of their Great Gran and Grampout, an exclusive family event on Cockatoo Island, Sydney.

Families lucky enough to attend will enjoy a fun packed entertainment schedule, and good old fashion games, like tug of war and sack races. If that wasn’t exciting enough, Harrison Craig, winner of TV talent show The Voice, is topping the bill. All you need to do is get to and from the Island, as tickets and accommodation are free. (Please note that transport costs and all other costs incurred are not included).  

There are only a limited amount of spots, so be quick to apply*

But don’t worry, Gramping isn’t just the 30th of November, you can Grampout anytime this summer. Remember to tell all your friends and family to spread the Gramping word.
