Kids Holiday Program
School holiday fun for kids aged 4 to 12 years at UWA
Our Kids Holiday Programs are fun and exciting multi-sport day camps for children aged 4–12 that are run by an experienced team of enthusiastic and friendly leaders. With a focus on participation and having a good time, this program is excellent for introducing kids to new sports in a friendly, non-competitive environment, and for keeping them active and happy during the school holidays. All leaders are trained in a variety of sports and each holds a First Aid qualification and Working with Children check.

"Welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff, and kids seemed genuinely happy at pick up." - Katherine of Crawley

Kids Sport Philosophy
At the UWA Kids Holiday Program, we aim to provide children with a highly supportive environment which nurtures a healthy lifestyle, positive social interaction, introduction to leadership qualities, development of motor skills and the concept of sportsmanship and respect of others.
We look to achieve this by:
- Providing a safe and friendly enviroment
- Exposure to a range of fun sports and games
- Introduction to non-traditional sports, like archery
- Exposure to what UWA Sport has to offer
- Special daily marquee events focussing on specific sports
- Exposure to The University of Western Australia - a world Top 100 university
- Exposure to UWA's historic sporting fields including James Oval and Riley Oval
Spring Kids Holiday Program: Tuesday 25 September–Friday 5 October
- Daily $65
- Special $260 (5 days for the price of 4)
- All sessions run from 9am to 5pm
- 8-9am drop off and morning parent play (so you can have some fun too before heading off to work)
- 4-5pm pick up
In addition to the exciting marquee events listed in the activity schedule, we encourage outdoor play and have structured games, sports and activities balanced throughout your child's day with us.
Our Spring program has been extended to provide your child with the opportunity to experience more sporting activities than ever before.
The Spring activity schedule will be available on Monday 27 August.
If you are looking for a more tailored sporting session for your child, check out our new Junior Sports Clinics that will be running through the school holiday period too.
