Entertaining the kids in the school holidays can be a challenge, especially if you need to balance looking after the kids with work.
Even if you are lucky enough to be able to stay at home with the kids, finding things to keep them occupied and entertained for the six-week break can be an uphill struggle.
Super Camps has the solution!!
Did you know Super Camps organise multi-activity holiday camps around the country for children aged 4-14?
Activities include team building, arts and crafts, imaginative games, outdoor exploration, quiet time, plus specialist courses during summer around LEGO® building, cookery and my personal favourite, the RAW Outdoor Adventure which I know Isaac will love.
Through these experiences, Super Camps helps children to make friends, challenges them and creates a fun and hands-on environment during those school holiday periods when parents are looking to keep their children occupied.
We were invited to try Super Camps multi-activity camp at the beginning of the summer holidays at Talbot Heath School in Bournemouth and whilst Eliza and Sebastian were very excited to try it, Isaac wasn’t so sure at first.
We arrived on a chilly and rainy day and were given a tour of the facilities so the kids knew where everything was. The staff were brilliant with them from the off, and they all made a bee-line for the LEGO area without even a look back or wave for me.
Everyday, an activity board was on display featuring the days activities for each age group. On the first day Eliza and Sebby came back buzzing from everything they had done whereas Isaac more cautiously admitted that he enjoyed it.
By day 2, Isaac literally came out bouncing as the weather had changed and they were back outside playing games in the sunshine. He particularly enjoyed archery tag and muggle quidditch.
What the kids loved about Super Camps
Different activities everyday – no day was the same and the activities on offer were a good mix of craft and games.
Sebby’s favourite activity: The Giants, Dragons and Wizards Game
“Giants, Dragons and wizards game – the giants step on the dragons, the dragons on the wizards and the wizards zap the giant with a magic wand” (The game is a bit like rock, paper scissors but involves two teams who will act as one of 3 characters. For each round, both teams huddle and choose to become a giant, wizard, or a dragon. When ready, both teams then line up and stand facing each other, about five or six feet apart. At the start of each round, the leader says “Three, two, one, go!!” At this point, each team acts out the character they chose (giant, wizard, or dragon). As soon as they do this, the winner tries to grab the loser — as many people over to their side as they can. The loser tries to retreat back to their own side to be safe for that round. If captured, a person now belongs to the other team.
Eliza’s favourite activity: Super Soak Day
“They made a slip and slide mat, sponge throwing (at the supercamp adults), the drip and drop game and we had a massive sponge fight at the end.”
“I liked crafting too”
Isaac loved: Quad Biking
“Riding the Quad bikes as they went really fast and I also enjoyed playing archery tag and Muggle Quidditch”
What I loved about Super Camps
The kids all had their own key person for all the time they were at the camp. Sebby had Beth, Eliza was with Phoebe and Isaac had Chantelle.
As Sebby is 5, he is still classed as Early Years and everyday he came home with form with a significant observation from Beth, the areas of learning that they had been working on for the day and what activities they had done.
On the other side of the form, Sebby got to draw a picture of his favourite activity of the day.
The staff also like to celebrate the kids achievements and Isaac came home with a certificate for “Super Camps Superstar of the Day” on one of the days.
