Teens have the chance to take part in an action-packed school holiday program in Nagambie this week.

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Laura Binks said the events were aimed at residents aged between 12 and 15 years, although younger children were welcome to attend with a parent or guardian.

Council will run two events, both being presented by Valley Sport and Strathbogie Shire Engage programs.

The events will take place at the Nagambie Active Youth Hub and skate park, with a variety of activities on offer for young people.

“We are hosting Get Inspired and Fun Day events, which will feature games, art and filmmaking activities, along with skating and park games,” Cr Binks said.

“Come and enjoy the awesome facilities at the Nagambie Active Youth Hub and join in the free fun. There will be sausage sizzles provided.”

Strathbogie youth aged 12 to 18 years are also invited to join a Mt Buller snow trip during the school holidays.

Cr Binks said the bus trip and toboggans would be provided free of charge and attendees were required to cover the cost of snacks, ski and snowboard hire and lift tickets.

The Mt Buller snow trip will take place on Tuesday, July 5. It will depart Euroa at 7.30am and return at 6pm and participants will be fully supervised.

Nagambie Skatepark Fun Day will be held on Wednesday, July 6, from 11am to 4pm at Filson St, Nagambie.
