August Summer Holiday Club
6th-17th August 2018: for 6-12 year olds.
A crafts and adventure summer holiday club for 6 to 12-year-olds from 6th to 17th August. Open to all.
If you're looking for something great to do for your children this summer, try our August Summer Holiday Club.
We're providing a healthy, entertaining holiday club with lots to do for 6-12 year olds. Instead of losing hours of the holidays indoors on their mobile phones or tablets, or playing electronic games, we'll keep them playing outdoors, keeping healthy getting creative and meeting new friends. They'll be enjoying themselves, learning something new and building confidence in their new found skills. All our programmes are non-competitive and children are encouraged to work and play together in all activities.
We keep our numbers small - a maximum of 25 children per session - to ensure all children attending the club get the care and attention they deserve.
Please book early to make sure your child gets a place.
Programme and Timings
The August Summer Holiday Club runs from Monday to Friday for 2 weeks, from 10am to 4pm. This is our 'Core Programme', so see below for the huge range of activities your children will be able to join in with.
We also provide early bird and late leaver sessions to help fit in with office hours if you're working - from 8.15am to 5.45pm. They'll be able to join in with a variety of games, crafts, story times and free play during these sessions.
If you need further information about any activities, please get in touch here [email protected]. We try to keep our activities outdoors whatever the weather but indoor alternatives are planned in case this is not possible.
