Summer Activity Weeks

  • 25-29 July 2022
  • 15-19 August 2022

These are open to all children aged between 4 and 14 years old. This includes children who are due to start Reception in September 2022, up to those due to start Year 10. 

It is a fun-filled week of activities, ranging from mountain biking, Forest School and canoeing, to onsite activities such as Catch the Flag, baking and Quick Cricket. No coaching – just fun!

Children can elect not to take part in certain activities they are not sure about, such as mountain biking and swimming. However, the more general activities do require everyone to join in.
