The summer school holidays have come to a close, and so has our stacked Inzone program. Thank you to all who participated, there were 114 attendees across 6 fun activities!
December 18 – Christmas Cooking Workshop
This sizzling workshop kicked off our summer school holiday program in style. Mentored by the ladies from the Capel CWA, 23 participants enjoyed the festive season by learning how to make Christmas goodies like gingerbread houses, gingerbread men, and holiday themed chocolates.
The youth had the chance to take home their freshly made treats to their family, let’s just say not many made it out the door! Not to worry, each child left with the recipe book just in time for Christmas.
January 9 – Yallingup Maze and Karridale Circus School
There were 21 youth who headed down south to enjoy a day of packed activities – our first stop was Yallingup Maze. Participants were challenged by the maze, as well as the many puzzles, board games and brain teasers that were on offer.
After some lunch the group ventured further south to the Karridale Circus School, where professional circus instructors taught the youth many skills, including juggling, tumbling, hula hooping, devil sticks, and even the human pyramid!
January 15 – Xscape at the Cape
To tick off the half way point of our Summer Inzone Program, 31 kids made a big splash at Xscape at the Cape in Dunsborough. Youth spent the day in the water park, playing laser tag, bouncing on the trampolines, and competing in mini golf. They were even treated to a comedy circus act while they enjoyed their sausage sizzle lunch.
January 18 – The Amazing Race Capel
The Inzone program came back to Capel, for the most challenging activity of the summer. 13 challengers were split into teams, with the goal to solve clues, activities and puzzles in the Capel town centre, the first team to do so was declared the victor.
Contestants had both their knowledge of Capel and critical thinking skills tested, and they won some awesome prizes.
January 22 – Perth Zoo
Heading north on this occasion, 12 attendees explored the spectacular wildlife on show at the Perth Zoo. They had the day to see creatures ranging from creepy crawlies to majestic beasts, and the zoo staff were very informative which created an educational experience.
January 24 – Youth Gaming Day
For our final activity, we took 14 youth and tried something we hadn’t done before, and it was a hit! The City of Mandurah put on an impressive gaming day in the Billy Dower Youth Centre, where youth from many backgrounds came together to play some timeless classics including Mario Kart and Halo, as well as modern gems Overwatch and Minecraft.
Tournaments were run throughout the day, prizes were awarded, and there was even a board game zone to wind down with.
