Holiday Programmes

Keep the kids busy these school holidays with YMCA Hamilton!

Kids don’t want to waste their holidays doing boring stuff – and we totally understand! YMCA School holiday programmes offer a new adventure every day with a range of inclusive and stimulating activities.

At our YMCA holiday programme in Hamilton, we make sure there is plenty to do to keep kids occupied. We have fun activities to do, and it’s a great opportunity for kids to make friends. We like to keep the children active and run lots of activities during the day, even more than the listed activities shown.

We also offer a variety of different holiday programmes and are located around several areas in Hamilton including: the YMCA Hamilton Stadium with 3 separate age group programmes ( 5 to 7 years old, 8 to 11 years old and a teenage group 11 to 15 year olds).

The following schools run a 5-12 year old age group - Aberdeen Primary, Cambridge East, Endeavour Primary, Hamilton West, Hukanui Primary and Silverdale Normal School.
