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!
Facilities and locations
Each mini explorers venue is hand-picked because its facilities are perfect for early years activities. Using a school’s EYFS facility or a large classroom with space to create continuous provision and child-led activities, our team encourages learning through play, including construction, arts and crafts, role play, messy play, fine motor/marking and a home corner.*

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.

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.
