These school holidays, Thrower House is hosting a fantastic range of fun and informative activities for young people aged between 12 and 17 years.
Set within the parkland beside Currumbin Creek and close to the skate park, Thrower House offers plenty of outdoor activities, exercise and games for young people with the school holiday program run by Wesley Mission on behalf of the City of Gold Coast.
From wildlife walks and dancing classes to creative projects and even mini-Olympics, these free community-run and fully supervised programs aim to encourage young people off the couch or internet and into the fresh air.
Other holiday program activities include skateboarding expos, memory challenges, stand-up paddle-boarding lessons, short tours, cooking classes – almost a seemingly endless array of activities to keep participants occupied!
It’s also a great way for the kids to meet new friends as they learn about interesting topics such as food, fauna, health and fitness.
The City of Gold Coast and Thrower House are committed to fostering a sense of community and belonging among our younger people.
The first week’s activities run from 15 – 19 December 2014; the second week from 5 to 9 January 2015; week three runs from 12 to 16 January 2015; and week four starts on 19 January and concludes on 23 of January 2015.
