Our holiday program features a variety of fun and engaging activities chosen by the children and families from our service. Each day is different with exciting excursions such as archery, skyzone and surfing or incursions such as skating, gymnastics and rock-climbing.
The children have plenty of time for free play where they can choose to take part in planned and spontaneous group activities or initiate their own play. The children will be required to bring their own recess and lunch and we provide a healthy afternoon tea each day.
All vacation care bookings are booked as 'casual' which can be done through the 'My Family Lounge' App which you can download here.
If you are attending any excursions, you'll also need to complete our online permission form for each child attending and any extra excursion liability forms.
Although staff will assist children in applying sunscreen throughout the day, parents can help BASC in following the Cancer Council Sun Safe Policy by ensuring that children are wearing sun-safe clothing and have applied sunscreen before arrival.
All families are required to have completed the BASC direct debit form before any bookings can be attended, which you can download here.
