Fun and Recreation for Children

Keeping children fit while having fun is just what we do

At YMCA North Shore Recreation Centre, we take a can-do approach to children’s fitness and fun. That can take many forms – from our gymnastics programme for two to twelve-year-olds right through to holiday programmes packed with adventure and learning. Our basketball programme also allows primary-aged children to get active and develop a real team-player ethos.

If you’re the one wanting to get active, our child minding sessions mean parents or guardians can stretch their own recreation and sport muscles, with sessions three times a week. Our caring and experienced team love providing a fun, values-based environment for kids, so you can enjoy your time at YMCA North Shore Recreation Centre even more.
