Looking for an exciting way to keep your children entertained over the school holidays? Let them enjoy a range of fun activities at a YMCA School Holiday Program.

With a variety of exciting incursions and activities, the kids are sure to have a fun, action-packed day. Our program is open to primary school aged children between five and 12 years old. YMCA School Holiday Programs are jam-packed with activities designed to stimulate inquisitive minds, get kids physically active and discover new interests with friends and energetic facilitators.

Our experience working with children means that we understand their individual needs - we know it’s not a one size fits all approach! That’s why we have a range of programs to help improve your child’s physical and mental wellbeing. They will also have lots of fun with us!
