Looking for an exciting way to keep your children entertained over the school holidays? Let them enjoy a wide range of fun activities at a YMCA 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 (5 to 12 years). YMCA’s 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!
We run the program from Rosebrook Building (59 Dimboola Rd, Horsham) through a partnership with Horsham Rural City Council.
Bookings for our 2020 Summer program open on Friday 22 November 2019.
Our Summer program will run from Monday 6 January to Friday 24 January 2020.
Your children will be engaged in a range of activities, including:
