Holiday Break Camps

Holiday Break is a series of free camps for eligible children that have been impacted by COVID-19 border restrictions, bushfires and drought and offers a much-needed break with a free Holiday Break camp experience these April school holidays.

Take a break, get active, and have some fun at our fantastic Sport and Recreation Centre camp locations. There are nearly 250 places available for eligible kids with six three-days camps across four Sport and Recreation Centres available.

Activities can include kayaking, bushwalks, cooking, craft and much more! All meals, accommodation and activities are included, plus free transport thanks to Transport for NSW.

As the unrelenting conditions in regional NSW place pressure on budgets, the NSW Government is standing side by side with regional communities to ensure they receive the support and assistance they need. Holiday Break camps are funded by the Office for Regional Youth, Office of Sport, Transport for NSW and the Department of Education.
