(Back to top)

Please read the guidelines to help you with a smooth registration process.

  • It is important to dress your child in suitable clothing and footwear appropriate for the activities.
  • Each activity requires your child to bring a drink bottle of water, suitable shoes and a hat (if outdoors).
  • Please arrive 10 minutes before the activity start time to register your child(ren).
  • We will not accept enrolments on the day. If your child would like to bring friends, please ensure they are enrolled before the day.
  • Due to popularity all of the activities are likely to have a waitlist. If you cannot make an activity you must cancel via Eventbrite or email the Recreation Team with your order number and activity name at least 24 hours before the day of the activity. 
  • Parents or carers are expected to stay for the duration of the activity.
  • Please do not bring food that contains or has traces of peanuts or eggs as other children may have allergies. 
  • If your child has any special requirements please make this known to the council staff member present on the day prior to the commencement of the activity.
  • Council will communicate cancellations of activities via text message and/or email to the contacts you provide during the booking process.
  • Do not forget to provide us your feedback via our survey that will be sent out to you after the school holidays as your feedback is important to maintaining and improving our program.
