our camps
Our camps are ideal for children from 4 - 8 years of age and are designed to stimulate curiosity and inspire creativity through a range of art, craft, cooking and music projects. Whether they are carrying out giant science experiments, rehearsing a musical performance using home-made instruments or designing and building a giant cityscape from cardboard boxes, our experienced camp leaders guide children to build relationships, learn social skills, practise problem-solving and teamwork and above all, have fun! Drinks, snacks and lunch are provided and independent ‘what if’ thinking is strongly encouraged!
To reduce risk of transmission, camps will be organised into consistent ‘bubbles’ and as such, families may only make full session bookings (5 days), rather than choose individual days to join our camps. Please note, our camps will only proceed if we have sufficient weekly demand. In the event that we are unable to run a camp, parents will be notified at least 7 days prior to the camp start and a full refund will be issued.
See our FAQs for further details.
This Easter break we're inviting 'Big Kids' to join us at Maggie & Rose Islington and Chiswick clubhouses for some Spring Camp capers! Our busy timetable blends structured activities (listed below) with child-led play and mindfulness, allowing children to immerse themselves and explore a different weekly theme whilst making new friends.
Each day at camp starts with some time to settle in, get to know each other and prepare for the day. After their first craft project, campers break for lunch and some time to let off steam in our play areas, followed by their afternoon activities. Before pick-up there'll be time to pursue individual interests and reflect on the day together.
Week One: 5th to 9th April
Our first week of camp celebrates some of the smallest inhabitants of our natural world – bees, butterflies and all the other things that creep and crawl! Amongst the jam-packed schedule, campers will get creative (and a little bit messy!) learning all about mini bugs in our multi-sensory classes, while crafting their very own crawly animals to bring home. They'll unleash their imaginations in our signature Make & Make Believe class, sing and boogie on with new friends to our favourite tunes, and practice moments of mindfulness with techniques such as ‘Caterpillar to Butterfly’ Yoga.
Week Two: 12th to 16th April
Spring is here, a time of new life and new beginnings! In the second week of our Easter break camp, we'll be heading down to the farm to get inspired by the creatures that live there and find out more about their habitats, what they eat and their babies that arrive in springtime.
'Big Kids' will get crafty making their very own bird feeder, Easter chicks and bonnet, sing along to our favourite farmyard songs, and get cooking up a herd of Spring Animals in our kitchens.

faqs

How are you making it safe for children to attend camps?

The well-being of our team and our member community is paramount and we have put in place a number of measures to ensure a COVID safe environment for your children :

Social distancing, including
– pre-booked sessions in same weekly ‘bubble’
– we will continue to maintain excellent staff / children ratios and each bubble will be allocated two staff members who will remain with them throughout the week
– parents will not be allowed to enter the club at drop-off; our team will welcome each child and settle them to the camp area
– children may not bring toys or other items from home

Increased sanitisation and cleaning
– attendees will be required to sanitise hands upon entry and regular hand-washing will be encouraged throughout the day
– increased cleaning shifts, including between sessions
– sanitisation stations
– removal of hard to clean toys and furnishings

We will also be monitoring both children’s and team temperatures during camps.

When will camps run?

Camp sessions will run Monday to Friday from 5th until 16th April. Camps will start at 10.30am and finish at 4.00pm. Early drop-off and late pick-up options are also available.

In order to reduce risk of transmission we must keep children within consistent ‘bubbles’ throughout the week, as they currently are within nursery/school. This will mean that we can only accept full week bookings, rather than being able to choose specific days each week.

Will you offer a refund if the camp has to be cancelled?

In the event that we need to cancel a camp session due to lack of demand or government-imposed guidelines, a full refund will be provided.

What if I need to change or cancel my booking?

We ask that you provide us with a minimum of 48hrs’ notice should you need to cancel your camp booking. Cancellation of bookings will only be refunded in exceptional circumstances, such as a child needing to isolate due to Covid-19 and upon receipt of a Dr’s note.

What happens if it rains?

We have adequate undercover space to continue camps should weather become inclement.

What happens if someone shows symptoms of COVID-19

We ask that any child who is unwell remains at home and does not attend camp. We will monitor children and staff closely for any symptoms of coronavirus. This will include daily temperature checks.

As per current government guidelines, should a team member or a child within the bubble contract Covid-19 or display symptoms of the virus, they will be required to self-isolate for 14 days. We will, of course, offer credit or a refund for any days missed upon receipt of a Dr’s note.
