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.

"Interesting activity schedule and engaged staff running the program. Most importantly my children really enjoyed it and wanted to attend." - Nadia of Dalkeith

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