Each camp will be different from the last. We ensure that there is great diversity through each camp and that your child gets a different option every day that they come to camp. Before each camp begins, there will be an activity schedule released showing all of the specialist activities on offer for that day.

If my child is signed up for the sports camps, can they join in with the arts 'N' crafts and vice versa?

This ensures that every child has the choice throughout the whole day to do exactly what they like on the schedule.
