School holiday activities return

Posted: 1pm 17 Jun 2021

Moreton Bay Regional Council's holiday program is back from June 18 to July 11, with a range of favourites returning and new activities for children and young people aged 3-17 years.

All of the new activities on offer via the Active Holidays program are designed to kick kids off the couch and into nature.

These range from guided mindfulness walks through Samford Valley to learning the ins and outs of camping such as pitching a tent and building camp gadgets.

With the school holiday program usually booking out in a flash, Mayor Peter Flannery is encouraging parents and care givers to get in quick to secure a spot.

“This program is super popular with families because of its diversity. There is something for everyone across Council’s libraries, galleries, museums, environmental centres and Active Holidays program,” Mayor Flannery says.

Affordable fun

“It’s also affordable with all activities free or low cost. We’ve brought back some favourites from previous holiday programs to keep kids moving this winter such as archery lessons in Joyner, fishing for beginners in Sandstone Point, and a girls’ skateboarding clinic at the Narangba Skate Park,” Mayor Flannery says.

“Across Council’s six galleries and museums there are some cool exhibitions and workshops including Brain Child which celebrates the world of inventions at the Redcliffe Museum to animation workshops at the Pine Rivers Art Gallery.

“There’s even more options at the 10 libraries across Moreton Bay Region including street science shows, special effects make up classes and a Larrikin Puppet Show for little ones.

“The Readers and Writers Festival is also running during this time with creative workshops, performances, storytelling corners and author readings to celebrate literacy within our community.”

Check out the range of adventure, sport, recreation and educational activities and start planning your family’s winter school holiday schedule.

Bookings are now open.
