School holidays can seem like a very long time for parents – and even children, too! That’s why we’re on hand to offer girls and boys aged 8-16 the chance to have fun, get outdoors and be adventurous.
Our popular Skoolz Out programme offers a full activity week, running Monday to Friday. Overseen by trained instructors, it will keep your children fit, active and entertained. You can also rest assured that your children are in safe hands because we have nearly 100 years of experience behind us.
