School Holiday Program

Now open!

Cockburn Youth Centre has reopened! Our schedule of programs are increasing, with the in-centre school holiday program commencing 6 July. The Outrage school holiday program will not be taking place over the July school holidays. For further information call the centre on 08 9411 3888, email youth@cockburn.wa.gov.au or visit their Facebook page.

Cockburn Youth Centre provides affordable and supervised school holiday programs for young people aged 10–17 years. The program operates on most days throughout the school holidays. The July 2020 Holiday program ran slightly differently compared to previous programs due to COVID-19. The Cockburn Youth Centre staff and all contractors took all steps to ensure the young people who attended our programs were able to do so in a safe and responsible way.

Current program

Our Youth Centre School Holiday program for the September/October holidays is currently under development and will be updated closer to the date. For current youth programs, check out our School Term program or go to the Youth events page.

You can also follow us on Facebook or Instagram for updates in regards to youth programs and events.
