Day Camps



Booking for day camp

In school holidays, what will your children get up to?  How about offering your children an unforgettable experience. With dozens of activities to enjoy, they’ll never be stuck for something to do.  And while they’re having so much fun they won’t even realise they’re also learning valuable life skills. Our day camps offer a safe, supportive environment where your child may try new things that will help them to grow in confidence. They will learn teamwork, make new friends, learn new skills, achieve things they thought impossible and have fun in the outdoors.

What are the benefits of my child coming to day camp?

Children of all ages have a valuable opportunity to make new friends and create lasting memories in an adventurous and safe environment. It’s a chance for children to develop their social skills, taking part in team-building and problem-solving activities, as well as overcoming personal challenges to build their confidence and self-esteem.

In a world where screen time and gaming are so popular, we are pleased to offer children all the adventures that the great outdoors has to offer. Many of the children that come to day camp return year after year, a testament to how much they enjoy it!
