School Holiday Camps

We have been providing courses for over 40 years covering a wide array of subjects from creative writing and drama to ICT and Physics. These are courses to encourage children/young people to explore and experiment in academic subjects through fun learning outside of the classroom to enrich their learning. They will also learn about being part of a team, leadership and taking responsibility for themselves.

Residential Activity Camps 
Your children will spend their days trying as many different activities as we can squeeze into the stay. Whether it is swinging from the heights, racing around on wheels or developing a new hobby; we aim to create the most memorable holiday of their life.
During the stay your children will get breakfast, lunch and dinner with a variety of options to choose from, and a morning and afternoon break with snacks.
Children’s Activity Days
These days are jam packed with activities for children/young people aged between 6 – 16; they are great for children who don’t want to stay overnight.
