YMCA School Holiday Programs are an opportunity for your child to grow and learn from new experiences over the school holidays.

Our holiday programs are created with the right mixture of fun, adventure and interest-based activities through excursions and incursions helping kids become more confident and independent individuals.

If your child is aged between 5 – 12 years old and enrolled in primary school, our programs will continue to deliver them with experiences that are the right mixture of fun, adventure and interest based activities.

Next program

Our next program is scheduled for the upcoming Spring Holidays between Monday 21 September - Friday 2 October 2020.

Further activity details for this location will be released closer to the programs start date.

Please note: our centre is currently closed due to the Stage 3 "Stay at Home" restrictions in place across Metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire.

Further information about the closure is available on our centre updates page.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Boroondara Sports Complex and YMCA School Holiday Programs.
