 What is Nimbin Vacation Care (aka Nimbin Holiday Club)?

For many years NNIC has run low cost school holiday activities for Nimbin children aged 5 -12 years. The program includes many excursions as a means to overcome the isolation of many local children. Other activities such as badminton, cricket, clay modeling and painting occur at the Nimbin Community Centre Youth Club Building.

 

How Do My Children Take Part? The Program of activities is sent out to school and is also made available via NNIC, this website and face book prior to each round of school holidays. Call 02 66 891692 or visit NNIC during our opening hours to book your child/children in for a particular activity.
