Venture Southland organises the Southland District Council Holiday Programme, taking crafts and games to the communities of Southland every January.
The Southland District Council Holiday Programme is coming to a town near you this January! Send your kids along for days of sports, crafts, games and challenges. Follow the SDC Holiday Programme on Facebook now to follow the action and receive any programme updates.
We will be bringing a range of crafts to get creative with, and sports equipment to get active with, every day. Check out the programme calendar below to see when we will be near you and the days we hope to be especially crafty or especially sporty!
