Childrens Programmes at YMCA

Booking for Summer 2024

YMCA Holiday Camp

Where every day is a new adventure

A holiday full of fun …

while building confidence, friendships and lasting memories. 

Throughout each week children will get the chance to take part in planned games, arts and crafts, local trips, as well as time to enjoy freeplay in outdoor and indoor spaces as we nurture their body, mind, spirit. 

Designed for children aged 6 – 12 years old, the camp runs 4 days a week during the school holidays from 9am – 4pm and is based at the YMCA in North Shields. Meals are included at no extra charge!

The holiday camp is offered at £17.50 per day or £60 for the week (about £2 per hour). Free funded spaces will be available to help make sure everyone can join; details below.
