There is plenty of free fun to be had during the upcoming summer school holidays, with sport and recreation camps and hundreds of summer skills sessions being held across rural NSW.
Minister for Regional Youth Bronnie Taylor said the NSW Government’s Holiday Break program will provide young people with the opportunity to reconnect with their friends, meet new people and learn new skills.
“With life returning to normal I am thrilled to confirm the summer program will be bigger and better than ever,” Mrs Taylor said.
Free summer Holiday Break activities include 25 multi-sport days, BBQ and Beats events at 24 locations, 17 sport and recreation camps at nine regional centres, the Active Pools Youth Pilot Program at 16 locations and six creative workshops.
Mrs Taylor said funding of up to $10,000 is available to each of the state’s 93 regional councils, as well as not-for-profit organisations, to help cover the cost during the upcoming summer holidays.
Funding applications for events to be run from December 20th, 2021 to February 3rd, 2022 are now open. For information about activities near you, or funding guidelines, please visit: www.nsw.gov.au/HolidayBreak.
