A week-full of activities!

Our children's Holiday Club has been running for years and is loved by children and parents. Attracting comments from parents like “I love your holiday Club, my child comes home full of stories, eats all their dinner and then falls asleep!” It’s like sending your child to an Activity Centre for a week but a lot cheaper. Drop off and pick up around work times.

We are encouraging folk to book early and are keeping the same prices as last year for full weeks when booked before 1 month of the start date

£140 (4 day week) £175 (5 day week) - ( equivalent of £35/day booked minimum 1 month before club commences)

£37/day/child for days booked within 1 month

Sorry there are no discounts for siblings or multiple weeks.

We are unable to accept Childcare vouchers as we make use of a public building with shared toilet facilities.

Schedule - 4 days following a BH Monday and 5 days all other weeks

This is the ideal plan, but activities often need to change to accommodate:  high/fast river, wet day, younger or older balance of children, or tiredness and behaviour as week progresses.  We do not refund you if you don’t get the day you think you booked.

Every morning children are put into a team of 10 others from around their age and stay in those teams all day and rotate around the activities. Each session is between 1 hour and 1h30mins with breaks and lunch in between. They do the activities listed in their team, to enable better socialisation and staff support.

  • Children that are sociable, like to run around in woods and don’t mind getting wet, muddy or falling down.

  • Boys and girls – some weeks there are more girls than boys, sometimes it’s the other way around. We work hard to make it inclusive and encouraging for both.

  • Year 3-7 for Summer Weeks (just finished those year groups and not about to go into them)

  • Year 4-7 for Easter and Whit week (May/June). Currently in those year groups.

hello

  • “My daughters attended a few days of the summer camp last year and had an amazing time! They really enjoyed all the activities, especially the kayaking. The staff are very experienced and are really good with all the kids. My daughters will definitely be back this half-term and also in the summer. Highly recommended for a fun and exciting alternative to the usual summers camps!!!”

  • "I just wanted to say thankyou to you and your team, my boys absolutely loved their week. This is the only holiday club they'll agree to go to now. They come home full of stories of new friends. It's a great programme of activities that you've designed. I wish there were things like this when I was a kid. See you again next year"
