Following on from the popularity of previous Summer, Spring and October camps for children in Primary 1 to Primary 7, these school holiday camps are run by highly trained and enthusiastic staff who have experience working with young people.

The Activity Camps run between 10am and 3pm during weekdays between July 1 to August 9.  There are also two options for an extended stay for children – The Early Risers Club and the Afternoon Kids Zone. These added blocks of fun offer Wii games, arts and crafts, giant floor games and dance mats in a more chilled out environment
