The Office of Sport is preparing to launch its Holiday Break program, with recreation camps, dance parties and hundreds of summer skills sessions to be held across rural and regional NSW.
Announced by the Minister for Regional Youth, Bronnie Taylor, the Program provides young people with the opportunity to reconnect with their friends, meet new people and learn new skills.
“Unfortunately, our spring Holiday Break activities were unable to go ahead because of COVID, but with life returning to normal I am thrilled to confirm the summer Program will be bigger and better than ever,” Mrs Taylor said.
“Whether it is an adventure at a three-night camp, hanging out with your friends at a BBQ and Beats session, enjoying free entry and activities at your local pool or learning practical and professional beautician skills, there’s something for everyone,” she said.
“After being cooped up at home during lockdown, I’m sure our young people will be ready and raring to make the most of all of the free activities on offer during the holidays, so jump onto the website, find something you want to be a part of and book your spot.”
Mrs Taylor said free summer Holiday Break activities included 25 multi-sport days; BBQ and Beats events at 24 locations; 17 sport and recreation camps at nine regional centres; the Active Pools Youth Pilot Program at 16 locations; and six creative workshops.
