HUNDREDS of kids and their parents danced under the stars at BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday on Saturday night in an attempt to set a new Guinness World Record.

The record attempt was to have the most people dancing outside together to Wii Just Dance.

More than 200 people officially registered with many more spectators enjoying the event.

Owner of the resort Naomi McKinnon said the atmosphere was absolutely wonderful and the kids just loved dancing to their favourite tunes.

"It's actually amazing what strong opinions they had on which songs they liked and didn't like," she said.

"The pressure on the dj's was enormous."

After the main record attempt everyone kept dancing until about 8.30pm as it was a beautiful balmy Whitsunday evening.

The annual charity weekend, Camp and Care with BIG4, was a huge success with non-stop activities for children.

Many locals use it as an opportunity to get families together with 67 local families and another 46 families from the Mackay region staying for the weekend.

There were more than 670 people in the park on Friday night.

Over the weekend 185 pancakes were made, 288 slices of pizza eaten, 200 glow sticks worn at the dance party and 18 boxes of slime used for the muck-up fun.

"The good news is that while we had a fantastic weekend we also raised in excess of $2500 for the Logan Wells Foundation".

BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday have to wait to hear whether their Guinness Record attempt was successful.
