Kids Holiday Program

UWA 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

Kids Holiday Program Philosophy

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
  • Exposure to what UWA Sport has to offer 
  • Exposure to The University of Western Australia - a world Top 100 university

Activity schedule

In addition to the exciting marquee events listed in the activity schedule, we have structured games, sports and activities balanced throughout your child's day with us.

Our Summer Program has been extended to 5 WEEKS! to provide your child with the opportunity to experience more sporting activities than ever before.

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. If your children are a little older, we recommend looking at the popular UWA Teen Holiday Program

If you would like to tailor your child's sports day to include the morning of Junior Clinics and an afternoon at our Kids Holiday Program, please email
