Wild Winter Holiday Programme

The team at Manukau Leisure Services has put together an exciting range of fun activities guaranteed to keep the youngsters entertained during the July school holidays.

Movies, ice skating, sports, tenpin bowling and treasure hunts are just some of the exciting activities on offer at recreation centres throughout the city for five to 14-year-olds. There’s even a Super Hero Fun Day at Pakuranga Youth Centre! Combine this with visits to Rainbows End, the Sky Tower and Kelly Tarlton’s and your kids will be well and truly occupied from 7 July to 18 July.

Manukau on the Move’s Team Extreme programme has a host of outdoor, action-packed pursuits for 12 to 16-year-olds. From caving, mountain biking, archery and abseiling to the Ness Valley Adventure day, there is something to appeal to even the most energetic teen. But get in quick – places are limited.

For more information on school holiday activities including times and costs contact your local leisure centre.
