Vacation Care

Do you still work during the school holidays and need somewhere for the kids to go? Do your children want to still hang out with their friends while being totally entertained? Need to drop the kids off while you have a mental-health day? Then vacation care for your child(ren) 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.

Our daily timetable includes in-house activities and games, incursions and excursions.

A wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities are provided for the children, and these range from sports and games, to art and craft, cooking, team sports, gymnastics fun, large and small group activities, park activities, children’s movies, drama and music activities.
