UK school holiday adventure camps for kids

Multi-activity holiday clubs for children aged 3-14

What does your child want from a school holiday adventure camp? Enjoyment. Fun with friends. Exciting games outdoors. Freedom to let off steam. A carefree vibe. Time to chill. Camp leaders who feel like mates. Activities galore. Somewhere to hang out, laugh and chat with others their age. A place to just be themselves. 

Campers and their parents know what they want from a holiday camp. And it’s all right here. 

Our adventure camps offer a unique experience to every child. Some value the social side most – the joy of meeting and making mates with children their age. Others relish the chance to try something new – a game they have never played before, an exciting woodland treasure hunt, or an incredible team challenge. You can be sure of one thing; every adventure camp, whatever the age group, promise something unique every day – a place of discovery, where curiosity rules, memories are made and stimulating activities guarantee maximum FUN!

Staff reviews

What do our junior explorers leaders say?

"As a company, the team not only care about the children but they have a really strong emphasis on staff development and career progression. Since the beginning of last summer I personally have moved from Activity Leader to Site Manager. The processes in place to enable employees to grow whilst doing a job that they love is great and I think it is what makes them stand out from other camps and childcare jobs I have previously worked in. I am so glad I found this company and I hope to continue working for them as they expand across the UK and then hopefully overseas as well!"

School holiday adventure camp FAQs

There are many reasons why children should attend adventure camps, including the variety of activities! Children can expect to participate in fun activities, including sports like tennis, football, hockey, rounders, cricket, dodgeball and lacrosse. They can also enjoy games, bushcraft, performing arts, team-building activities and group challenges. Mini explorer camps for ages 3-4 include activities designed for early years.

We plan our daily schedules around the children’s age and interests, using a similar tried and tested structure. While timetables vary across venues, camp programmes follow a theme with weekly activities carefully selected to make sure everyone enjoys an incredible fun-filled adventure holiday camp wherever its location.

Currently, we cannot provide lunch as an add-on to our bookings. We ask parents to provide children with a packed lunch, snacks and a refillable water bottle. Note that we are a strictly nut-free camp, so please, no nut products in pack-ups!

Our multi-activity camps are grouped based on age. Children can attend Mini explorers from age 3-4, Junior explorers from age 5-7, Wild explorers from age 8-11 and Senior explorers from age 12-14. We also have a Survival camp just for bushcraft-loving kids aged 8-14. When your child is within around four weeks before their birthday, they have the choice to move up a group if they wish.

What do our parents say?

This is the second year our child has attended camp at Ackworth School. They absolutely love it. We were easily able to book their place and being able to use the tax-free childcare, makes it so much more affordable. They go for one day a week over the summer holidays but we are considering sending them over the other school breaks too because of how much they enjoy it. They love going because of the kind staff, who remember them from last year and the activities from playing outside, swimming, creative art, and dancing. It is such a great experience for them and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
