Surviving the School Holidays

It’s winter and the school holidays are nearly here. What is there to do? Get your kids active and outdoors with Council’s Manukau on the Move team.

Manukau on the Move’s highly popular TEEN EXTREME programme for 12 to 16 year olds offers a huge range of fun and affordable activities.

The Teen Extreme Programme runs from 1-5 July and takes teenagers mountain biking at Woodhill Forest, indoor climbing, Optimist sailing, sea kayaking at Wenderholm, using their wits to survive the Mission to Mars challenge and caving in an underground maze. These full day adventures are only $35 per day or $150 for the whole week.

Programme co-ordinator, Judith Harris, says “The programme will suit enthusiastic teenagers who are keen to take up the challenge of the many outdoor activities we’ve got planned. Just because it’s winter, it doesn’t mean staying inside watching television or playing computer games is the only activity available for your kids.“

The Manukau on the Move team provides all the specialist equipment and qualified instruction is provided. Interested kids and parents should phone 275 8399 for more information and registration details.
