We were so pleased to be able to run our holiday camps this summer and were so happy to see so many of you back down at the camp! Perhaps even more so than ever before, the importance of children keeping active has really been highlighted. We were close to being fully sold out for our entire summer holiday camp so we know that you all must have been feeling the same.
As times move on and new developments come to light, we are aware that we need to make sure that we are constantly updating and reviewing our holiday camp procedures to make sure we are offering you the absolute best service.
What Is New?
While this is not entirely new as we were able to introduce matches in the middle of summer, we thought this still important to point out for you all!

This will be an opportunity to warm up and dry off so the camp will continue to take place predominantly outdoors and will only be used when it is absolutely necessary. Don't forget to bring warm, wet weather clothing and a woolly hat and gloves are always advisable! It is also recommended to bring a spare change of clothes in case the rain soaks us!
100% Money Back Guarantee
With talks of a circuit breaker we want to reassure you that if we are able to go ahead we will certainly continue to run. However, if we are prevented from running our camps due to government restrictions we will be refunding all money paid by parents on our October camps.
What Is Staying The Same?
Football will be the main focus of each day with socially distanced football games and activities where we have eliminated contact. As well as fun games, children will als
