Holiday Programmes at The Y Onehunga

Make a splash with The Y (formerly known as YMCA) Holiday Programme

At The Y Onehunga War Memorial Pool, our Holiday Programme offers a range of engaging interactive activities and excursions for your child. Our dedicated OSCAR Leaders aim to inspire positive social interaction and learning while making sure the children are having the time of their lives on our Holiday Programme.

With a variety of different pools, qualified lifeguards and trained Holiday Programme staff your child/ren can get to enjoy the water all throughout the holidays in a safe and active environment.

We also cater to parents who require before and after care. Before care begins at 7.30am, the holiday programme begins at 9.00am and after care runs from 3pm-6pm.
