Holiday Club 2018

Dear Parent

Welcome to AROUND THE WORLD  Holiday Club 2018. We are honoured that you would trust us with your children for this week, and we are sure that they will have an amazing time here! There are a few things you should know:

You are welcome to drop off your children anytime from 7am to beat the traffic! Our pastors will be serving some hot coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the morning, so there’s no need to rush off. Holiday Club is not just about your children – we would love to connect with you, too.   The programme ends at 13:00.

Every great trip starts with a check-in and boarding process.  Because you have already registered for Holiday Club, you can skip the ‘Ticket Counter’ and head straight to the ‘Boarding Gates’.  You will shortly receive a seperate email which contains a QR code.  Show this QR code to our Check-in team and they will be able to scan in your child/ren.  (Don’t worry if you are not able to use the QR code, we can also check your children in using their name).

The team will print a security tag for you and your child.  Please make sure you bring the security tag with you when you collect your child to check them out. No child will be released without a security tag.  If someone else is collecting your child, please take a photo of your tag and send it to them.

From Tuesday we get to dress in a crazy theme. The best dressed children will win points for their team. Here are the themes so you can help you child prepare for this:
Day 2: Crazy Travellers
Day 3: Crazy PJ’s
Day 4: Crazy Colourful Flag
Day 5: Proudly SA

Each year Eastside has a missions focus for the Holiday Club. This year we are partnering with Abbas Pride for our Holiday Club missions project. We will be collecting blankets, clothes and food for the under resourced churches we partner with.

You don’t want you or your child to miss the finale of Holiday Club where you’ll get to experience part of what your child has enjoyed throughout the week.

Kids arrive at 17:45. Please be seated by 18:00, and the event will conclude around 19:15. Coffee and biscuits will be served after the event and ‘Boerie Rolls’ for will available to purchase – no needs to cook on Friday!

A tuckshop will be available at the end of every day (near the check-out counter) selling some sweat treats and Holiday Club caps for R60.

We look forward to going this journey with you!

Holiday Club is the highlight of the year for our Teen and Young Adult leaders.  Leaders enjoy a week away from home, staying at the church premises and enjoying a fun programme for children in the morning (which they lead) followed by even more fun in the afternoon, and a time of connecting and mentorship in the evening.


We look forward to hosting your child at Eastside. Pre-registration  has closed – but don’t stress, you can still bring your children to Holiday Club! We will have a registration desk,  marked “Ticket Counter”, available from 7am each morning.
