Y•Isolate Programme

Fun-filled, youth friendly programme for 5-16 year olds

Y•Isolate is an initiative by the YMCA South & Mid Canterbury team to provide information and resources to keep young people in our community engaged and having fun throughout the National Covid-19 lockdown.

In a time where you can’t do all the things that we are used to. We must think outside the square or in this case bubble. Focus on lessening the stresses of being cooped up, get as much activity as we can.

Jump on over to our Facebook pages YMCASouthandMidCanterbury and YMCAMidCanterbury, for updates on what is happening.

Or look below to a series of links to websites with activities. We’ve listed them in categories as we know everyone has completely different interests.
