Holiday Programmes

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 looks forward to seeing you and your child during the Summer Holiday 2016
