Holiday Programmes

Sport Canterbury’s popular Active Kids School Holiday Programmes give families a structured, safe and affordable school holiday care option, with opportunities to “have a go” and try new activities in a fun, supportive environment. Programmes are specifically designed to cater for ages five to 13.

This July, with Sport Canterbury, your Active Kids may have the chance to meet their sporting heroes!
