Group activities give all the children time to settle in and get acquainted. We then have group games and lots of fun time to try out our full size gymnastic equipment in our purpose built, bright & colourful gym. After all the fun, it’s on into our party room for 45 minutes to recharge batteries with a freshly prepared healthy snack which typically consists of buttered toast, crumpets, bagels and toasted tea-cakes and fresh fruit served with either water or juice. (Food allergies are catered for on request)All the children then get involved in a themed craft activity which will be so fantastic it will get pride of place on your fridge at home.Then it’s back into the gym for another hour of instructor led gym fun and games.So that’s our action packed morning camp. ( If you are collecting your little ones at lunch time be prepared for tears because they want to stop all day ! )LUNCH TIME 12.30 till 1.30.If children are staying with us all day we then have our lunch break . This is a supervised FREE hour where children go into our party room to eat their own packed lunch. Staff are on hand to open lunch boxes, crisp packets, yoghurts or anything else that is proving challenging for little hands.  We can provide a Subway Kidspak with them being right next door to us (pre-order is essential on drop off and at an extra cost of £3.00)We then encourage children to take some quiet time to do a word search, read a book or do some colouring. This will always be fully supervised and is a great opportunity for children to make new friends.PM CAMP 1.30pm-4.30 Our afternoon session is based on the same timeframe as the morning but will be a totally different session to ensure everyone is stimulated and has lots of fun. Our afternoon snack is normally fresh fruit, raisins, a yogurt or jelly and some crisps with either water or juice.So that’s a typical day at one of our amazing camps.
