If you’ve got kids who are into everything, or you have more than one that needs occupying during the holidays, then a multi-activity programme may be just what you’re looking for. There are plenty of camps around town that offer everything from football to drama, music, swimming, arts and crafts to games sessions. Added bonuses include sibling discounts, so it’s great if your younger child is still a bit shy, as at least they’ve got big bro or sis around to give them a bit of moral support. Plus you only have to do one drop-off.
We like E-Sports Holiday Camps, which offer every kind of exhausting activity you could shake a hockey stick at, including wall climbing, drama, dodge ball, IT club, tennis, soccer, swimming, cricket, relay games, gymnastics, basketball, arts and crafts and more (including hockey!). Siblings get 20 per cent discount and kids need to bring swimwear, a towel and lunch.
