CYT Holiday Programmes are an absolute MUST DO for any young person over the Holiday breaks.

Cromwell Youth Trust always deliver exciting, engaging and adventurous activities each Summer, Autumn, Winter & Spring.

CYT Holiday Programmes are youth centered and are based upon ideas from the youth themselves – this has resulted in us enjoying such activities as the adrenaline rush of indoor skydiving with iFly Queenstown, flips and tricks at SITE Trampoline, Crazy Art days and Baking Days, Ice Skating, going to another world with our friends from REALM Virtual Reality and so much more!

Due to the popularity of CYT programmes we typically BOOK OUT within a short space of time (sometimes in 1 hour!) so we highly recommend you register to our Mailing List and Social Media to be kept updated to be the first to secure your childs spot.
