Local teenagers are in for a treat next month, with free entry available to Camden War Memorial Pool and Mt Annan Leisure Centre as part of the Cool Off in Camden program.
The annual program offers residents aged between 12 and 18 years, or in Years Seven to 12 at school, the opportunity to enjoy the school holidays with their friends while having some fun at the popular local schools.
This year, young people will not need to book their visit or obtain any access cards to gain free entry, but rather there will be a cap of 500 free entries for the entire month of January.
“Many teenagers in the area have been unable to spend as much time with their friends throughout what has been a challenging year, so this is a great chance to start 2022 in the best way,” a Council spokesperson said.
“For those of us who don’t fall into the age bracket, there’s still lots to enjoy across the Camden area. The inclusive Curry Reserve and Dawson-Damer Park Water Play Spaces are two options. The wet wheelchairs available give wheelchair users the opportunity to play in the park’s water elements, which will attract lots of visitors.
“There are also many other fantastic local parks, reserves which are perfect for family picnics and for kids to run around.”
Residents attending the local pools will be required to use the QR sign in and sign out facilities.
In line with Government guidance and regulations, the Y NSW will also require customers 16 years and over to comply with health requirements.
