Our entertaining holiday camps are for boys and girls between the ages of 5-11. Children can attend for a day or a number of days fitting around your existing work commitments and holidays.

Our Holiday camps are Ofsted registered camps designed for boys and girls aged 5 – 11 years. To be an Ofsted registered camp we can only accept children who are 5 years or over. 

4. What is an Ofsted Holiday Camp?

Our camps are Ofsted registered which means all of our staff have certain qualifications as well as an enhanced DBS check, pediatric first aid training and a commitment to continual professional development. It also means our venues and day to day running hit Ofsted requirements to ensure your child is in a safe environment.

5. What can my child do on a holiday camp?

Multi Sports

At an MSP holiday camp, your child will participate in a number of sporting activities. Our camps are designed for children of all ages and sporting abilities. Over the course of a day, children will learn new skills including social, technical and physical. Children will take place in numerous sporting activities such as dodgeball, football, archery and many more.

Inflatables

Some of the days at our camps are inflatable days where children will have the opportunity to use some of the following: giant slides, bouncy castles, bouncy boxing, gladiator duel or an obstacle course.

Football (Kick Pro)

We also hold days that are specifically for those football mad children, everything about the day is football. We will practice specific skills such as shooting, dribbling and turning in the morning then look to apply these skills in a tournament in the afternoon. For more information on our inflatable and football (Kick Pro) days please visit the website.
