HOLIDAY CLUBS - ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
At our HOLIDAY CLUBS we can really get stuck into our most immersive and exciting activities. We know it can be daunting for children to spend a whole day with new people, that’s why we always ensure they get a warm welcome and that we get fun and simple team games running straight away. Watching children’s confidence grow and new friendships form during our holiday clubs is one of the most rewarding parts of what we do.

We have a great range of entertaining activities planned each holiday.

Our clubs are Ofsted registered.

AGE: We welcome all primary school aged children (Year 1 to Year 6). The Outdoors Project is on the compulsory & voluntary Ofsted childcare registers but not on the early years register, which is for those caring for children from birth until 31st August after their 5th birthday. This is the reason we can only welcome children from Year 1 upwards. If your child is 5 but in reception, unfortunately they are too young. We would love to welcome your child to our clubs in future though!

We recommend age 6+ for our NERF activity days, due to the more competitive nature of the activities.

TO BOOK: Book and pay online. A confirmation email with full details of your booking will be sent to you. You can book for just one day or for the full week.

WHAT WE DO: We're all about playing outdoors, whatever the weather; being silly, having fun, making new friends and learning some new skills! Every day is different. We run specific activities in small groups throughout the day. These always include games, and also focus on learning new skills, communicating, making, playing & creating memories. We support a non-competitive environment, with a range of activities throughout the holidays to suit everyone - from the quiet and methodical to the louder and livelier. We encourage a supportive and happy environment where the children can build friendships, succeed at new tasks and feel relaxed in a green, open space. We encourage physical, outdoor exercise throughout our gameplay to promote health and wellbeing.

A TYPICAL DAY (for the kids):

  • Clubs run from 10am - 3pm (we do not offer an early drop off or a late pickup service)
  • On arrival, your adult will need to sign you in with the leader. We can check your emergency contact details and any allergies or additional needs to make sure your day with us is safe and fun (we will see this in advance from our register too)
  • Once signed in, you’ll put your lunch in the designated area, wash hands, and the children will join the instructors to play games in a group whilst the rest of the children are signed in
  • We'll introduce ourselves and tell you all about the plans for the day
  • The children will be split into smaller groups for the day and will be asked if they’d like to switch groups to be with friends/siblings
  • The instructors will stay with the group for the day, moving from activity to activity
  • There will be water, hand-washing and toilet breaks throughout the day
  • We run three small activities per day, based around a theme, divided by a snack break (late morning) and a lunch break (early afternoon)

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BRING?

  • A morning snack, a pack lunch & a water bottle
  • Sturdy shoes - no flip flops please! Wellies are encouraged in autumn & winter
  • Appropriate clothing for the season/weather - waterproofs, warm clothes, hats & gloves... or sun cream & a sun hat! (we have sun cream available on site too). Oh, and pack a sense of adventure!

FIRST TIME WITH US? It's normal to be a little nervous on your first day but trust us when we say everyone who comes has SO MUCH FUN! All our instructors are really kind and friendly and they are there to make sure you have a good time - come rain or shine, or if you're struggling to join in. They love to show you how to join in and will make sure to introduce you to new friends.

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT: We love to accommodate everyone but please do make sure to check the activity for the day prior to booking and that it's a good fit for your child, to get the most out of the day. Once with us, they will be expected and encouraged to participate in the planned activity all day, so to avoid any disappointment, please consider the activity you are booking them on is a good fit.

FOOD POLICY: Children will eat lunch in their groups. We ask children not to share lunches due to possible allergies within the group. Our gazebos are set up for the children to sit with the instructors and their friends for lunch. Children will be encouraged to eat their lunch at a sensible rate and what is comfortable for them. When our activity involves cooking on the campfire, we always provide alternatives for allergies and dietary requirements. You can note allergies or other dietary requirements when making your booking. Please alert the leader of any further information or required medicine regarding this when signing in.

HOME TIME: At the end of the day the children will be asked not to leave until they have been signed out to the pickup person named on the register (any last-minute changes to pick up, please do let us know or we may need to contact the named person before the child is released from our care). Please also ensure that the children take all their belonging's home with them.

STAFF: All our staff are DBS checked, safeguard trained and we have first aid trained instructors at every club. Click on 'Meet the Team' if you'd like to take a look! All holiday clubs will have a folder at sign in for information, like Ofsted registrations, insurance and instructor information, if you wish to take a look.

HOW DO I BOOK & PAY? You can do this on our website. Hit the BOOK NOW button and follow the steps to register for the club and pay online. A confirmation email with full details of your booking will be sent to you.

'ROAM' CLUB T-SHIRTS: We have our special club member T-shirts available to buy! Please email to enquire about purchasing . These are great for sewing our patches onto! 

SEN CHILDREN: We are an inclusive club and fully promote the many benefits of time spent outdoors for all children. We do participate in organised activities and can operate a ratio of 1 instructor to 10 children during holiday clubs. If your child has additional needs, please do get in touch and we'd be happy to discuss further to advise whether the holiday club environment is the right fit. If your child receives one to one support at school, please contact us before booking so we can look at whether we can offer the support required.
