Vacation Care

Are your kids bored at their school’s vacation care? INEA YMCA vacation care offers something different. Do your kids want to make new friends? INEA YMCA vacation care has lots of kids from different schools from all around Adelaide. Do you want your kids to be active? INEA YMCA vacation care has a full gymnastics hall and sports stadium available to play in everyday. Do you want your kids to be creative? INEA YMCA vacation care offers lots of arts and crafts activities. If you still work during the school holidays and need somewhere for the kids to go, to be totally entertained all day, then vacation care for your child(ren) INEA YMCA is for you.

Vacation Care at YMCA INEA, Walkerville operates each day of the school holidays, except for public holidays, and the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Opening hours are 8:00am – 6:00pm Monday to Friday.

The 2017/18 Summer program offers action-packed activities all through the holidays. We have excursions to Ingle Farm Recreation Centre for roller-skating and Piccadilly Cinemas for some movie fun. We can’t wait for our incursions from the magical George Stas from Adelaide Magic, creative fun with Laygo, gaming fun with the Games Truck Australia, improve our cricket skills with ‘in2 Cricket’, comedy and drawing fun with Paul Duff and inflatable fun with a massive water slide and board games. Additionally, our in-house themes will have something for everyone. How about dressing up in your favourite teams’ colours, Disney or Pixar character, pirate outfit or for our disco party? Along with our specialty of gymnastics and stunt monkeys, come along to join in with the Amazing Race, star-gazing, building a beach, beating the heat with water and games, celebrating our Aussie-ness and of, course, Xmas and holiday traditions.

The vacation care program endeavours to provide a high quality program for primary school-aged children to enjoy, thrive and be challenged in that is rich in opportunities to learn, develop and have fun. We are an inclusive program of children with additional needs and take pride in supporting all children. We foster children to develop active bodies, creative minds and healthy spirit.
