What's on in Lewes this Summer

Summer is now officially here  (hallelujah!)
Summer work/life/kids juggling season is almost upon us too...
We appreciate that, between work/life responsibilities, it can be difficult to find the time & energy to plan outdoor fun that works for the whole household.
Our mission is to provide THE MOST FUN outdoor activities in a safe & engaging environment where kids can be kids, make new friends, learn new skills, & experience the great outdoors, providing memories they’ll never forget. Parents tell us that children request to come back to the holiday clubs over and over - this speaks volumes in the fun that they have.
It’s a win-win! 
Kids have tonnes of fun, spend time outside & come home tired.
Parents have a guilt-free day to do what they need to do.

(something for everyone.....)
