Winter School Holiday Program will be announced from 5 June 2023

If your child needs quality care during school holidays, is between five and 12 years old, and enrolled in primary school – they will love YMCA School Holiday Programs!

About us

We're proud to support families in Cobram with our YMCA School Holiday Program based at St Joseph's Primary School Cobram.

This program is run by YMCA Children's Programs – part of YMCA Victoria.

Important: St Joseph’s Primary School will be running the Autumn school holiday program instead of Cobram Primary School due to major buildings works over the holiday break. For families who have already booked in to our Cobram program, we will honour your place in the program – but we do need a few things from you first!

To secure your place at St Joseph’s Cobram school holiday program, you will need to go to your QK Enrol account.

  • Once signed in, please go to ‘View Enrolment.’
  • On the top, left-hand side of the enrolment, select ‘YMCA St Joseph’s Cobram’ from the drop down list.
  • Sign off on the Terms & Conditions and select ‘Submit.'
  • Repeat this for each child you require to be enrolled.

Once your enrolment has been updated to include the new site, your payment details will need to be updated here before your booking is finalised.

  • Please confirm the enrolment in your MyGov account to ensure you receive CCS for the upcoming program.
  • Email once your CCS is confirmed so that they can ensure you are not charged full fee.

Next program

  • Dates for the Winter School Holiday Program will be announced from 5 June 2023.

We believe in an inclusive society for all children and families. Children with additional needs are welcome to attend our program. Families must contact the OSHC Coordinator at least four weeks prior to the holiday program to discuss the individual needs of your child and complete any funding applications. Find out more about inclusion at YMCA Children's Programs.

Activity types, prices and subsidies

YMCA School Holiday Program runs three types of activity days, which include:

  • In house: activities run by our Educator Team;
  • Incursion: activities run by visitors to our service;
  • Excursion: activities run at an off-site location.

Each activity day incurs a separate cost that is confirmed prior to each holidays when bookings are opened.

Program tables are available to view under the ‘Next program’ section, prior to the start of each school holiday. These detail the daily activities types and associated fees. 

Fees listed on program tables are not inclusive of any Child Care Subsidy (CCS) entitlements, which may reduce your out-of-pocket expense.


Debit process

Our programs operate on a fortnightly debit cycle, which withdraws payment for the next two weeks of care your family has booked.

If you book an additional day of care during our School Holiday Program, your account will be back charged in the following debit cycle.

Visit our debit process page for a list of forthcoming debit dates.
