Vacation Care

Autumn Bookings Open Tues 14 March

YMCA Canberra offers vacation care during the school holidays at eight locations across the capital.

Participation in these programs is highly sought after and all are Child Care Benefit (CCB) Approved Services. Care is provided by experienced and enthusiastic staff who focus on delivering an engaging and safe program for all children.  Our programs are wide-ranging and varied and include exciting excursions and fun in house activities.

Vacation care activity programs are posted on this website in the lead up to holiday periods. The program blends indoor and outdoor activities, we provide all the resources and children need to wear suitable clothing and footwear for an active day.  They will also need to bring a sunhat, water bottle, snacks and lunch.  Please note that due to limited food preparation facilities at our vacation care sites we are unable to heat lunches.

All school based services operate Mon-Fri 8am-6pm during their operating weeks. The daily fee of $75 is inclusive of all excursions and transport costs unless otherwise stated. When enrolling in Vacation Care, a Booking Form and a HUBWORKS! registration for each service needs to be completed. Where transport is required it is by chartered bus.
