School Holiday Programme Y Camp is a very popular week long camp.  From the age of 9 years children can come and participate in the vast array of fun activities led by our outstanding local and international volunteer instructors.  A strong focus is on social interaction and as the children grow into teenagers, leadership development and goal setting is incorporated into the programmes.
