Swimming, horse-riding, multisports, arts & crafts, family cycling, DJ sessions and dance workshops are some of the 1,900 activity sessions provided by Manchester City Council for the summer holidays.
With over 11,750 fun-filled hours of recreation over six weeks, this summer promises the BIGGEST and BEST choice for children and young people yet.
Taking place in all areas of the city, most sessions are free of charge or are very low cost guaranteeing something to keep all the family entertained.
Parks, leisure centres, libraries and community centres will be hives of activity as school timetables give way to more carefree days of leisure and amusement, where young people can stay fit and active while socialising and making new friends.
Councillor Mike Amesbury, Executive Member for Culture and Leisure at Manchester City Council said: "We've got more activities than ever before for young people of all ages, covering a wide range of different interests. The programme is also part of the city's Getting Manchester Moving initiative, which encourages everyone to stay fit and healthy while having fun, and with no shortage of choice this summer for little or no cost, it's the ideal way for young people to spend the summer holidays."
To take part in any of the activities, children must be registered with Manchester City Council by a parent or guardian. This can be done on the day or by completing the form on the activity brochure, which lists the full programme of summer activities. This is available through schools and at leisure centres and libraries.
As well as the individual activity sessions, two sports camps are being held at SportCity for £15 per child, which includes a full week of sports activity - five hours per day for five days. For more details contact Jo Smith 0161 220 3855.
Some of the activities may require pre-booking due to limited availability and these are highlighted in the activity brochure with all contact details.
