YMCA makes hol­i­day time fun time

The Tribune (NZ) - - THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT -

The YMCA is run­ning some great pro­grammes these school hol­i­days. As New Zealand’s largest provider of out of school care ser­vices they un­der­stand the blend of ac­tiv­i­ties and ex­cite­ment which make it fun.

Ev­ery day gets started with a mix­ture of Jump Jam energy burn­ers and ice breaker chal­lenges. Fol­low­ing this the kids split into their two age groups to en­joy sports, paint­ing, cook­ing and swimming ac­tiv­i­ties, plus some out of town trips. There is even a chance to go on an ad­ven­ture camp for a week.

Op­er­a­tional man­ager Vaughan Den­ni­son says they have made an ex­tra ef­fort this year to pro­vide a full range of ac­tiv­i­ties that are fun packed and great value. ‘‘Staff al­ways look for­ward to these pro­grammes and are ex­cited with what’s planned.’’

The YMCA is also of­fer­ing an ex­cit­ing week-long camp at Camp Raukawa. It is pack­aged at a spe­cial rate so that chil­dren aged 6-14 years can en­joy the out­doors with both wa­ter and ad­ven­ture ac­tiv­i­ties.

YMCA is a CYF ap­proved provider and WINZ sub­si­dies may be avail­able.
