Multi Activity Day Camps
Multi-activity Day Camps
Poolside Manor has a rich history of providing top quality multi-activity holiday camps for those aged 3 to 11. Camps have been transformed in recent years and continue to expand to other sites, now enjoying the first-class facilities of nearby St. Mary’s Primary School.
Our exciting programmes are never the same. Each week is themed differently, to capture imaginations and shape the programme of activities on offer. And when we say multi-activity, we really mean it! Children are served up such a range of sports, craft and art activities, dance, drama, games and trips and visiting performers that they are likely to find new activities every week and every day!
Our leaders possess a vast amount of collective talent, experience and expertise. We endeavour to use this to design activities which enable children to develop their skills at the same time as having the times of their lives.
Poolside Manor camps are regulated by the British Activity Holiday Association and Ofsted. We are on the Early Year, Childcare and Voluntary Ofsted registers and as a result are subject to the strict license regulations and inspections conducted by them.
A Typical Day
A Typical Camp Day
Our Day Camps are held each and every school holiday without fail...
Each day begins at 10am and lasts until 4pm, but for a small extra fee we can offer early starts (9am) and late finishes (5pm).
And so the day unfolds...
Children arrive to settle in, enjoy a tantalising range of free play activities and make new friends.
Children are engrossed in a thrilling range of activities that are designed to appeal to a broad range of interests and ages.
Activities are varied, well resourced and delivered by talented and passionate camp leaders. Sports include football, cricket, tennis, junior golf, hockey, rounders, dodgeball, basketball, netball, table tennis, snooker, pool and team multi-games.
A unique array of crafts and art and dance and drama workshops are offered, with unstoppable creativity when the children and camp leaders come together.
Lunchtime serves as a pit stop and chance for children to refuel with their own packed lunch (not provided) and then enjoy a treat from the tuck shop while they watch a DVD in preparation for the afternoon.
All attention then turns to the fun that is about to be had in the afternoon.
Two activities are staged, one of which is Splash, a thrilling swimming session of team games and free play. Half of the children enjoy Splash while the other half enjoy a second afternoon activity, whether crafts and art, dance or drama or a sporting activity. Both groups then swap to experience a full taste of our camp programme.
Splash is only topped by the excitement of weekly trips to the park and visiting entertainers & excursions to attractions that we much prefer to keep under wraps!!!
Children are collected from camp, recalling endless tales of the fun they’ve had; accompanied by trophies from their achievements on camp in the form of prizes, medals and their artwork.
