Holiday Programmes


Please note that we will not be running programmes at Postgate School, Moera and Churton Park School this holiday. Due to low bookings at these centres, we have consolidated our programmes into existing centres. We encourage you to book in to our programmes at Plimmerton or Titahi Bay in Porirua, Belmont Community Hall in Lower Hutt and Khandallah School. We apologize for any inconvenience this change has caused you and we thank you for understanding. If you have feedback for us about this change, please do not hesitate to contact us.


About Us

The YMCA offers children and young people fun and educational activities to keep them happy and active during every school holiday of the year. We run programmes in Upper & Lower Hutt, the Wairarapa, Porirua, Wellington City and Holiday Camps at Camp Kaitoke.

The YMCA is a values based organisation. Our values are Honesty, Responsibility, Respect and Caring. These values drive our programme content, how we manage behaviour, our commitment to sustainability, and the way we interact with participants, their whanau, our volunteers and staff.

Each holiday day programme and camp offers a varied and interesting variety of activities ranging from trips, art and craft to sports and games.

There are a variety of ways to book on to the programmes; the fastest way is to book online and pay with your credit card. You can download the brochures below to view the programme details, and there are also links to registration forms which can be emailed, faxed or posted back to us
