We’ve got another jam-packed holiday programme coming up in January – focusing on broadening childrens’ skillsets and hobbies. Whether it be learning a new sport, developing performance arts skills, learning how things are made, or how to survive out in the bush or how to spot endangered animals and care for them. We’ll also be having lots of fun in the sun – lots of water activities and outdoor visits. Kids can play fun games in the park with all their friends. We’ve also got some exciting visits including Wellington Chocolate factory, Six Barrel Soda Company factory, a special presentation at Carter Observatory, imagination playground at the Dowse, and last but not least the chance to get super adventurous and experience Camp Kaitoke for the day! There will also be family favourites such as Junglerama, Laser Force and our big trip to Embassy Theatre. We’re also extremely excited to round off the holidays with our famous Summer Carnival. Fun galore!
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
