Our holiday camp in Cambridge is based at The Leys school. Our children’s multi-activity camps are for children aged from 3 to 14 years and have a wide range of fun activities for kids to enjoy during the school holidays.

The Leys School is an independent preparatory day and boarding school, set amongst 50 acres of outdoor space in the heart of Cambridge. The Camp features playing fields, a climbing wall, sports hall, swimming pool and plenty of space for activities. The facilities at The Leys makes it a perfect location for holiday camps for kids.

Most importantly, your children are in a safe and secure environment for having fun. We have over 15 years of experience in making sure our kids have the best school holidays ever!

Children will come home having had a day that not only develops them socially and physically but having enjoyed every minute of it!

Typical age groups:

3-5 yrs
6-8 yrs
9+ yrs
(Actual groupings may vary slightly at each site)

Whether your child is interested in sport, arts, crafts or a bit of everything, we have activities to suit everybody. Children attending Active Camps will take part in activities ranging from large scale painting and mosaic masterpieces to team building games and obstacle courses.

Everything will be a little different at Active Camps this holiday as we are exploring new activities and games to make sure we stick to the social distancing guidelines!

Children will be part of a group or ‘bubble’ with a maximum of 15 children of similar ages. Each bubble will have consistent staff members to keep the number of people that children come into contact with at the very minimum.

An individual camp kit will be provided for use during the session, including equipment such as colouring pens and pencils, paintbrushes and a range of other arts and crafts equipment. All of this is to reduce the risk of infection by avoiding sharing equipment.

Activities will also be a little different at camp this holiday! Our experienced Activity Leaders are hard at work coming up with fun new games to make sure we all stick to social distancing and show everyone that we can still have fun together!

Just to make sure your children are all set for camp, we have put together a little kit list of what to bring to camp:

  • Packed lunch (including 2 snacks and NO NUTS)
  • Water bottle
  • Coat in the event of wet weather
  • Sun cream (when necessary)
  • Hat (when necessary)
  • Outdoor shoes/wellies (when necessary)
  • Ideally a personal hand sanitiser (group sanitizer will be provided)

Preferably all in 1 bag that the child can carry with them (all labelled please!) for more information make sure to check out the pre-arrival information page.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Active Plus is not currently available.
