Camp Activate

Camp Activate is an Ofsted registered programme and is compliant with all Ofsted guidelines within the compulsory register.

Our holiday activity programme provides hundreds of exciting activities for young people aged 5-14 during the school holidays. These take place seven times during the year:

  • February half term
  • Easter holiday
  • May holiday
  • June half term
  • Summer holiday
  • October half term
  • Christmas holiday (selected dates and centres)

Each programme is packed with art, sport and history activities at affordable prices. Our sessions are run by fully qualified staff in line with Ofsted guidelines, or trained professionals and have limited places to make sure they are run safely.

Many of our activities prove to be highly popular and sell out fast, so early booking is essential.
