    Kids Get Active is for kids aged 6 to 12 and is held during the School Holiday breaks. This is an inclusive day camp program for all children of all abilities.

    • The Cockburn ARC Kids Get Active Holiday Program operates during school holidays and each session is booked on an individual day basis.  

    • Upfront payment for each session is required at time of booking. If fees are not paid, your booking will be cancelled, and your child will not be able to participate in the program.  

    • Parent/guardians are not required to be present for the duration of the sessions but must always be on call in case the ARC needs to get in contact.  Parents must be available to pick-up upon request. 

    • The Kids Get Active is a license-exempt program and therefore the Child Care Rebate does not apply.  

    • Sessions do not operate on public holidays. 

    • If children are picked up after 5:00pm, a $30.00 late pick up fee will be charged for the first 30 minutes of lateness, and $30 accumulatively applied every 30 minutes thereafter. The late pick-up fee must be paid upon sign-out. 

    • Cockburn ARC may change the program structure, content, or equipment at any time.  

    • Children should be medically and physically able to participate in physical activity and understand instructions. The parent/guardians accept the inherent risks of undertaking exercise on their behalf. 

    • Children and parents enter the Facility and surrounds and/or participate in programs, utilise the equipment and/or take advantage of services offered by Cockburn ARC  at their own risk.  

    • Children must behave appropriately while participating in a Cockburn ARC program and will not engage in disruptive, dangerous, or inappropriate conduct. If the child demonstrates intolerable behaviours that presents risk to themselves, ARC property or others, parents/guardians will be notified to collect the child immediately and future bookings may be refused.  

    Medical Conditions/Allergies  

    • Parents/guardians are to submit a Medical Disclosure Form and a copy of the child’s action plan for any illness/allergy/condition.  

    • Cockburn ARC are to be notified of any medical conditions and/or allergies prior to attending Kids Get Active.  

    • Parents agree to abide by any program specific guidelines provided by Cockburn ARC Children’s Programs.

    • Parents/guardians understand that ARC staff are not required to be trained in handling disabilities outside of standard behavioural training. All staff are required to hold a valid Working with Children Check.  


    • City of Cockburn does not provide refunds.  

    • If you need to cancel a Kids Get Active booking you may do so within the client portal up to 48 hours beforehand. A Kids Get Active product credit will be issued to be used for future bookings.  Credit cannot be issued after this.  

    • A minimum of 24 hours notice is required for all cancellations to avoid an attendance charge. 

    • Credit can be provided for a missed class due to illness if a medical certificate is provided within 2 days of a missed class. Credit will only apply if we are notified in advance of a class being missed. Refunds do not apply.  

    • Cancellations requested within 24 hours will not be accepted (unless approved on medical or compassionate grounds). Cancellations with fewer than 24 hours notice will not qualify for a credit or refund.

How do I access the online portal?
All current and previous attendees automatically have a free account set up with us. 

If you have never used our programs or services before, you will need to set up a free account with us via our online portal and click 'forgot password'. Enter the email you used on our original form to enrol yourself or child. Follow the instructions outlined in the email sent to you to reset your password. After you've set a password, you should now have access to your online account. Check whether your child(ren) have been linked to your account. 


If you have a health club membership with us or have enrolled in our children's programs before (e.g. PlayActive, Junior Coaching Clinics and Swim ARCademy), these features will be added on to this. Check whether your child(ren) have been linked to your account. 

How do I make multiple bookings

You can book multiple children and/or multiple KGA days for one child by adding each session to your cart before paying.

To book multiple children in the one day, you will need to add the booking for each child by selecting them one-by-one on the ‘booking for’ drop down menu. You can do this using the 'Booking for' dropdown menu, which you'll see on the pop-up window after you select a timeslot. 


After you've added each individual booking for each child, please ensure you check out your shopping cart. If you don't check out, your booking(s) will be cancelled. 

Can I book my child the same day I want to attend?
We don't accept walk ins for Kids Get Active. Online bookings will be available up until the day before the session.
Can I cancel my booking?
You can cancel up to 48 hours before your booking via the online portal. Simply, locate your booking via the 'My Bookings' tab and select the minus '-' sign to the right of the booking. From here, you'll be able to cancel your booking.

Once you've done this, you'll receive a Kids Get Active credit equivalent to what you originally booked and paid for, which you can use for future bookings. Please note, we're unable to provide refunds and can only provide a credit to your account.

If you cannot make your booking on the day, please let us know immediately by contacting our team at 9411 3362 or play@cockburnarc.com.au during opening hours.
