Marvel Mania and Disney Delights headline a packed school holiday calendar this July at Shellharbour City Council, which includes arts, crafts, movies and more.
Shellharbour Mayor Marianne Saliba highlighted Council’s commitment to providing free and low-cost activities for families and children during the term break.
“We provide a broad range of events and activities that are accessible to young people of all ages and locations, Cr Saliba said. “It gives our young people an opportunity to make connections, share experiences, develop new interests, and foster potential talents.”
Highlights from the Libraries program include the Enchanted School for Princes & Princesses, with lessons, games and practical tests for 5-12 year olds; and a ‘Drive-in movie’ showing of Cars 3, where 5-8 year olds can come in early and build their own cardboard box car to park in front of the big screen.
Shellharbour Youth Services (SYS) will host a Marvel-themed Movie Day on Friday 12 July, with young people encouraged to dress up as their favourite character, and Marvel movies also feature alongside some Disney classics in the City Library’s It’s Showtime series.
Local young people and their families can attend free SYS activities across the Council area, including a Scavenger Hunt at Albion Park, Footy Tournament at Warilla, and a Photo Trip leaving from Blackbutt Youth Centre; plus Skate & Sounds returns to Shellharbour and Albion Park Skate Parks.
The two-week program will conclude on Friday 19 July with a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at Shellharbour Civic Centre. For $15, attendees will enjoy delicious treats, giant chess, Wonderland croquet, face painting, and photos with the Mad Hatter himself, who will be sticking around afterwards for the free Disney Crafty Party.
