Kia Ora! Welcome to the 4C Centre

Young? Creative? The YMCA Christchurch has a place for you. Explore your creative potential through our tech and innovation hub.

The 4C Centre has something for everyone, with physical and digital tools for all forms of creation. Give robotics a go with our Lego Mindstorms and DoBot Arm, flex your engineering muscles with 3D modelling challenges, or even pick up a new skill like sewing or electronics!

As a member, you can chose to be a self-directed learner with 24/7 access to our learning tools, or to also connect with one of our talented volunteer tutors! We offer a number of facilitated workshops (check out our events calendar – always updating!) for maximum learning value.
