OSCAR Subsidies

All Active Kids Holiday Programmes are approved for an OSCAR subsidy, which means that eligible families may apply for assistance toward the cost of the programme. Payment is required at the time of registration, and once Sport Canterbury has received the subsidy, the registered family will be refunded the given amount. An enrolment form must also be completed for each child before the programme commences.
