Holiday Clubs in BathPublished:
It seems like not too long ago we were packing away our Christmas decorations and now here we are - the summer season! With the arrival of the sun, as pleasant as it is, it usually means the leaving of school! Our little ones just love their school breaks, don't they? Yet, as much as they love the time off, it's not too fun to be thumb-twiddling for six weeks!
A kids camp is the perfect problem-solver for an energetic child with plate-spinning parents! Here’s our top selection in Bath, which feature a range of sports and activities to suit little ones from three to eleven!
Holiday Clubs in Bath
The aim of SuperPirates is not for little ones to learn how to plunder booty, in fear of walking the plank! Instead, it’s all tree-climbing, stream-paddling, den-building and friend-making! With a wide range of activities throughout the day to try out, there is something to suit everyone; children ages 3 - 11 years old can play at their own speed, in their own way. From fun and games to discos, talent shows, crafts, sports and more - treasure hunts, potion making, and obstacle courses! There are also wonderful grounds at The Paragon School base for children to explore, including a stream, beautiful woodlands, an adventure play area, a large playing field and a cinema room! From 8.45am - 5pm, £33 per day. Find out more.
