Our winter holiday programme was very popular this year, with some great activities drawing in lots of new children. Here are some highlights from the Winter Holiday Programme.
Week one included crafts, gymnastics, Bumper Ball, Inflatable World, movies, and a talent show.
Here's a video of one of our junior leaders-in-training doing a flip on a skateboard from a jump ramp to a crash mat .
Week two included the amazing race, a quest at Te Puna Quarry Park, gaming, skateboarding, a Y Kitchen Rules competition, and a trip to Baywave.
Andrew Warner from Bay of Plenty Times came to Y Kitchen Rules day to take photos for a photo essay.
The children at the Winter Holiday Programme practiced and performed this haka for the YMCA Tauranga patron, Mahe Drysdale. The haka was written by our staff member Jubert Moeke.

If your child is interested in action, being creative, or just wants to stay in one place and chill - the YMCA has a programme to suit your child’s needs! Our team of dedicated supervisors, leaders and volunteers are ready to help your child learn new things, build their confidence and enjoy having fun in a safe, child focused environment
Giving your child the best experience possible is the YMCA’s main priority. The activities are age-group based, but some are combined when appropriate for team sports and group play. This encourages the kids to interact with each other and promotes good social behaviour.
The YMCA is proud to announce that all the activities offered will be based on learning outcomes called Developmental Assets.
These Assets are the building blocks of healthy development that help young people grow up as healthy, caring and responsible people.
There are 40 assets that make our children the exceptional and unique beings that they are.
