Hawford Holiday Club
Welcome to King’s Hawford holiday activity provisions. Our aim is to provide a fun-filled day in a relaxed, happy environment. Staff are qualified, caring and work hard to ensure all children feel welcome, valued, safe and secure. We want children to enjoy their holidays whilst joining in with a range of activities and having fun with friends both old and new.
King’s Hawford has ideal facilities for the variety of activities we offer – extensive grounds, a sports hall, swimming pool, climbing wall, Katakanus, and well-equipped rooms for indoor activities. The emphasis is, of course, FUN! The children will participate in a range of activities including a variety of sports and games, craft and cooking, dance, and drama, as well as many other activities both on and off-site to give a balanced day. Off-site activities will also be on offer throughout each week and are all fully supervised by our team.
We welcome children from outside the King’s Foundation. At Activity Camp and Holiday Club we make full use of the fantastic, extensive grounds that Hawford has to offer.
Children from age 2 -5 are welcome to join our Holiday Club for younger children. Each day an activity leader provides a range of different activities based on a theme, such as space, pirates or a story such as The Gruffalo. Activities may include crafts, cooking, physical games, forest school, swimming, investigations and much more. Swimming is provided free of charge twice a week to all children. Safety is paramount and there is a high level of supervision.
Children from age 6 - 12 are welcome to join our Activity Camp. Each day the children take part in a variety of activities. Baking, art & crafts, sports, swimming, dancing, team games, outdoor fun and trampolining are just a few of the exciting activities offered. The children swim everyday, free of charge, please ensure your child has a swimming kit with them on the days that they attend.
There is an additional charge for some activities and trips, details of these, if applicable, are on the booking form. Trips are arranged throughout the holidays to local places of interest. Trips are optional and are offered to children aged 3 years and above.
