Summer Break and School Holiday Programs

The Office of Sport is pleased to be offering School Holiday Programs at its Sport and Recreation Centres throughout the January School Holidays.

School Holiday Programs

For the best holiday fun, our popular kids’ camps get kids outdoors learning new skills and making new friends. With so many activities to choose from, you’re sure to find a camp your kids will love.

Cool camps at our Sport and Recreation Centres 

Kids benefit in lots of ways at an Office of Sport, Sport and Recreation Centre camp. At the junior level, they learn to challenge themselves while growing in confidence and independence, having fun and making new friends along the way. Older kids get to engage in a healthy and active lifestyle that promotes team building, problem solving and leadership while enhancing their social skills, personal growth and self-esteem.
