Teens – get ready to cool off for free this Summer!  

As part of the Cool Off in Camden Program, locals who are aged between 12 and 18 years, or are in years 7 to 12 at school, will be able to get free entry to Camden War Memorial Pool and Mount Annan Leisure Centre in January.  

Council says that after what has been a tough and often isolating year, this will be a great opportunity for young people to reconnect with friends. 

“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. 

There will be a cap of 500 free entries for the entire month, so be sure to get in early! 

But, if that doesn’t apply to you, not to worry! Council assures that there will be loads to do across the LGA this Summer. 

 “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.”
