The Camp Day

All our Holiday Camps will provide a themed creative timetable and an energetic sports timetable. Children can swap between timetables and choose which activities they would like to try throughout the session, making every day at Funtastic Kids unique!

We also have a wide variety of books, games, puzzles, toys, construction sets etc for the children to enjoy during break times, and we encourage children to play outdoors in the fresh air as much as possible too.

Plus, children booked onto our Extended Day option (8am – 6pm) will also receive a tasty nutritional breakfast and light afternoon tea at no extra cost!

Funtastic Kids also participates in the Government’s Holiday Activities and Food programme. More information can be found on our HAF webpage.
