Summer clubs - now on sale in Brighton & Hove

The weather is hotting up, the trees are blossoming... it can only mean one thing - summer is just around the corner!! We've spent a lot of long days in the office and out in the playing fields planning for our summer holiday clubs in Brighton, Hove and Poynings. We're pleased to say that they're now ready for booking! 

We can't wait!!

July 11th - August 26th, 10am - 3pm weekdays

Kids aged 5-12 (primary school age Year 1 - Year 6)


Our 3 sites this summer are:

- the lovely Lancing College Prep School in Hove (a playing field plus a small wooded area. We're building new equipment here right now too! We'll keep you posted!). This is where we kick off the summer, starting early for the private schools on the 11th July, running throughout the summer
- Cottesmore St Mary's School in Hove (a playing field with a forest school style area - including a dirt kitchen, benches, a fire pit and wooden tables). Clubs start 25th July.
- Parkwood Scout Camp in Poynings (a huge woodland area in the countryside, with a range of fields, woodland areas (including 'the dark woods'...) and beds of wild flowers, plants and mushrooms - I can't stress how beautiful and natural this location is! Clubs start 25th July.

We've managed to outgrow Mac's farm over the past year have and settled into our new location, Parkwood. Again, it's a short drive from Brighton & Hove, but well worth it if you have a car! It's 10-15 mins from Brighton or 10 mins from Ditchling. Same team, same great activities, even more amazing site!
