By May 28, 2008No Comments

There’s something for everyone these school holidays with an exciting range of entertainment and activities on offer in the Winter Teenage Holiday Program.

Maroondah City Council has planned a great holiday program for young people 12 to 16 years of age with six jampacked days of fun from Monday 30 June to Friday 11 July.

Councillor Alex Makin believes school holiday programs are a great way for young people to stay entertained while trying new activities and meeting new people their own age.

“To tie in with the winter theme, there’s a whole day of snow delight at Lake Mountain with all equipment provided, as well as a session of ice-skating at the touring rink at Waterfront City in the Docklands precinct,” said Cr Makin.

“Spend the 4th of July visiting the Melbourne Aquarium and Galactic Circus, Australia’s largest indoor interactive theme park with hundreds of the latest arcade games,” said Cr Makin.

“Other activities include cartooning workshop and movies; go karts and dodgem cars at Fun City; and a day of adventure golf and computer games,” said Cr Makin.

The cost for the holiday program varies between $17 to $32 per day, depending on the activity. For further information or to book activities, telephone Dure Morrell, Youth Program Worker on 9298 4252.

Bookings are essential and close on Friday 6 June, however enquiries may be made after this date in case any vacancies exist.
