School Holiday Program

Please note: Online bookings for the January 2019 School Holiday Program have now closed, BUT there are still places available in many of our incursion/centre-based activities. Please contact your nearest Youth Centre to confirm your place. Note that activities are for young people aged 10-17 years old.

Our school holiday programs run every school holidays, and include excursions, outreach centres, and heaps of activities at each of our 3 youth centres (located at Hastings, Mornington and Rosebud).

The youth centres are a safe place to meet friends and make new ones, in a supportive environment – young people can be involved in structured activities run by qualified youth workers or have free time to chill and use the facilities.

Our excursions will be held all across the Peninsula and abroad. Young people are taken out for the day in the mini busses provided by youth services and participate in various recreational activities.

The cost of activities is free (unless specified on the flyer), and all excursions require a gold coin donation.

Introducing CareMonkey!

The Mornington Peninsula Shire Youth Services (MPYS) takes the health and safety of children who use our service very seriously. As such we are adopting a new health and safety application named CareMonkey.

CareMonkey is an innovative parent/guardian controlled electronic medical form for clubs, schools and other groups with a duty of care to your child. It’s an electronic version of the paper-based forms you must fill in for registrations, excursions, camps, etc. It provides you the opportunity to update medical information promptly and accurately, while providing our service with instant access to the information provided by you in an emergency. For more information about CareMonkey, please visit their website.

You will be asked to provide consent to sign up to CareMonkey when you book your child’s holiday activities.
