Each year we are involved in providing Youth Week events, some in partnership with the Wingecarribee Shire Council. You should visit our Youth Hub website for details each year.
Skate Competition & Mini Festival
We often run a Skate/Scooter/BMX Competition with young people running and judging the event for other young people. This is always a great day, often combined with a mini festival with entertainment included.
"Sound Sessions" Band Night
The Sound Sessions Bands Night in 2012 was held at the Loseby Park Community Hall and welcomed local bands of all styles and genres with members aged between 12-18. The quality and talent of the musicians was fantastic and it was great to be able to promote muisc in the HIghlands and give these bands the opportunity to perform.
Performing Arts Showcase
The Performing Arts Showcase invites all the dance schools in the Highlands to perform for their friends and families at Mittagong RSL. The event showcases the variety of dance classes available to young people in the Highlands, from classical ballet, to hip hop and jazz.It also provides a performance platform for young singers and actors.
We also provide a variety of Art Workshops each year. These have included artist Nathan Hawkes, winner of the Brett Whitely Travelling Scholarships joining young artists at the Bowral & District Art Society studios to facilitate soem fun activities that stretched the young artists out of their comfort zones. Another year Zoe Young worked with a large group to produce multi media posters. We also has young artist Yvette from YMT Designs who worked with young people to produce bright and interesting signs for the Youth Hub.
Photo Scavenger Hunt
The Photo Scavenger Hunt involved young people competing in teams for a cash prize. The Scavenger Hunt involved following clues to landmarks around the Bowral area and taking creative photos to illustrate the answers to the clues. Sometimes the photo required an activity such as star jumps on the Bowral Library steps - the photographic evidence created a great record of the Highlands' icons and landscape.
Free Ten Pin Bowling
Two games of Ten Pin Bowling, fries and a drink at Highlands Tenpin in Mittagong make for a fun activity for the school holidays and we try to run this at least twice a year.
Free Movie Night
A free movie night at the Empire Cinema in Bowral attract alarge numebr of 2-18 year olds to enjoy the movie, a drink and popcorn with a theatre full of kids their own age.
