SibShop and Bowlarama

Come to Bowlarama with us! Our SibShops are a day for siblings to have fun and connect with other kids who just ‘get it’.

Our popular SibShops offer the opportunity for children and youth aged 8-18 with a disabled, neurodiverse or health impaired brother or sister to have a day where the focus and attention is just on them.

As well as having a blast bowling, laser tag and bumper cars, there will be two sibshops – one for the sibs aged 8-12, and one for 13-18 years. Siblings will get the chance to sit down together and talk about what it’s like having a disabled sibling, in a safe environment with others who know just where they are coming from. Run by siblings for siblings, SibShops provide a space to discuss practical tips and strategies to help them thrive in their own unique family and whānau environment. Our SibShops are incredibly popular so get in quick!

The event starts at Te Whaea then the siblings will walk 260 metres to Bowlarama at 52 Hall Street, Newtown for parent pick-up at 4:30pm.
