Ashburton Pool and Recreation Centre has partnered with YMCA Children's Programs to support local families outside the school term.

If your child needs quality care during school holidays, is between five and 12 years old, and enrolled in primary school – they will love Ashburton YMCA School Holiday Program.

YMCA School Holiday Programs feature a range of interest-based experiences that will keep the kids entertained and active during the holidays.

This program is run at Ashburton Pool and Recreation Centre, which is owned by Boroondara City Council and managed by YMCA Victoria.

  • Account management resources
  • Enrolment and booking process

Next program

Bookings are now open for our 2021 Autumn School Holiday Program runs from Tuesday 6 to Friday 16 April.

This will be the first program run at Ashburton Pool and Recreation Centre (APARC), following the ease of COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.

During the recent summer school holidays, we ran a combined program for local families at Boroondara Sports Complex (BSC).

With both programs running again for autumn, families have a wider range of activities and experience to choose from.

The team at Ashburton and Boroondara are excited to see families return these holidays.

Don't forget: APARC and BSC both offer lunch orders from their centre cafés.
