King's Camp

With the holidays just around the corner, we are delighted to be partnering with children’s activity camp specialists, Kings Camps, to offer your children an exciting summer experience. Kings Camps combine the best elements of sports and holiday clubs with specially trained and inspiring coaches, making school holidays even more memorable.

Their exciting summer programmes include new Commonwealth Games-inspired activities as part of the Multi-Active programme, a World Cup edition of their International Soccer Schools, and more Splash swim improvement sessions.
