In partnership with Camp 4-2-11 | camp4211.co.uk

Rated outstanding by Ofsted and one of Gloucestershire’s most popular children’s holiday clubs, Camp 4-2-11 is a hub for holiday fun, offering a range of action-packed adventures for children aged three to 14 years.

The jam-packed programme includes activities such as swimming, arts and crafts, drama, music, games, bungee runs and much more for little ones to enjoy throughout the school holidays.

1. School holiday camps at Camp 4-2-11

Starting from £130 per child per week, and suitable for children aged between three and 14 years, the school holiday camps at Camp 4-2-11 not only offer a variety of hands-on sports such as dodgeball, frisbee golf and swimming, but plenty of choice for those who are less sporty, too.

For little ones who prefer something other than sports-based activities, there is an abundance of workshops from clay modelling to face painting and mindfulness to enjoy too.


2. Day camps at Code Ninjas in Cheltenham

Bound to have something to keep tech-loving kids happy, Code Ninjas day camps take place at the Learning Centre at Gloucestershire College on various days in July and August 2022.

4. Cotswold Clubhouse holiday camps

Cotswold Clubhouse in Bourton-on-the-Water is running both its Summer Gymnastics Camp and Summer Activity Camps throughout the summer holidays – as well as an extended camp for those awkward days before the kids return to school.

Stretching across the full six-week holiday, Just Camps will be setting up in Gloucester and Cheltenham, with flexible options including half or full days.
