Active summer schemes

We run children's summer schemes in several community centres from 18 July until 26 August. Our schemes take place on weekdays with morning and afternoon sessions. The schemes are suitable for children aged five to 12 years old.


A place on a weekly scheme costs £15 for morning or afternoon sessions (concessions may be available). 


We arrange sports, games, arts, crafts and trips during each weekly scheme.


There are two sessions on every day of the scheme, Monday until Friday. On the scheme children attend a morning or afternoon session, not both sessions.

Session one 10.00am until 1.00pm
Session two 2.00pm until 5.00pm
