“This is one of my priorities and our school holiday program takes the stress out of trying to find fun things to do so that you, or someone you know who is looking for local activities, can literally sit back, relax and have fun. All that person needs to do is to register in an activity,” he said.
Activities are either all free or charge a small fee to cover costs such as transport.

These activities include:

  • A skateboarding clinic, led by Totem Collective;
  • Library scavenger hunts, summer reading clubs and nifty craft activities;
  • Trips to the beach where participants will get the opportunity to learn how to surf;
  • Trips for the whole family to go kayaking together;
  • Dancing workshops;
  • Self-defence lessons; and
  • Archery and laser tag, and so much more.

“We’ve put together a truly eclectic blockbuster of local programs and to help kick everything off, the BYRC will be having an awesome Open Day which features live music, a food truck and ice cream bar. I’d love to see our young people register for what’s set to become a memorable summer holiday and not miss out,” Mayor Asfour said.
