"My daughter had a truly fantastic, exciting and enjoyable time. She is quite a shy child, but right from the first day she loved coming to the sports centre and had a great time with all the activities."

Ofsted registration

The camps are Ofsted registered (EY423243) and our certificate is displayed in the Centre for Sport viewing gallery.

What to bring

Please ensure your child is suitably prepared for all weather conditions and activities, ie trainers, tracksuit, sun-cream, hats, rain coat etc. A spare change of clothes is required.

You must supply your child with a packed lunch and drinks bottle every day. Please ensure that they have enough food and drink to sustain them throughout the day.

Registration and location


Children can be dropped off between 08:30-09:15 and collected between 17:00-17:30. If you require a pick up time earlier than 17:00, please let us know at the beginning of the day.

Parents must register their child each morning that they attend the camp in the Centre for Sport viewing gallery. You will need to supply a password on the application form; this will be used to confirm that you are the correct person to collect your child.
