School Holiday Activities (5-12 years)

Holiday Activities

During the school holidays the library has activities for primary-school aged children.

NOTE: Age restrictions and skill requirements apply for all activities. These are set by the facilitator. Please do not book your child in to an activity if they do not meet the age restrictions and skill requirements.

Please note that the library subsidises ticket prices to make our programs affordable for families so we can not accomodate vacation care groups. Ticket limits per person apply.

MEDIA RELEASE

Make believe, dance and art – all at Camden Council’s Libraries 
 
Treat your children to playing make believe, dancing and grooving and even flexing their artistic abilities at Camden Council’s Libraries these school holidays.
 
Council’s Libraries are running:
 
Street Sense with Llynda on Tuesday 9 July, 2:30-3:30pm, at Oran Park Library. This fun and interactive show will teach children, aged 5 to 12 years, everything they need to know about road safety – on the way to a pretend circus! Once at the circus, Llynda will show children some amazing juggling ($5 per child); 
 
Hip Hop Flashmob, on Tuesday 16 July, 2-3pm, at Narellan Library. This groovy session will teach children, aged 5 to 12 years, everything they need to know to slide and glide, freestyle ‘like a boss’ and perform with others. There is no prior dance experience necessary ($7 per child); and 
 
Mexican Arty Party Fiesta on Thursday 18 July, 2-3:30pm, at Camden Library. Children aged 6-12 years will create self-portraits (Frida Kahlo-style), make pinatas and eat delicious Mexican snacks ($7 per child). 
 
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said the activities were entertaining and stimulating but, most importantly, educational. 
 
“It’s so important for children to still be active and challenged, even though they’re having a break from school,” Cr Fedeli said.
 
“With these activities, parents can rest assured their children will not only have a great time but will learn something new, be able to jump around and use their creativity.
 
“And they’ll be surrounded by books, programs and other learning resources they can sink their teeth into on other days.”
