Holiday Club

Our action-packed Holiday Club is located at Sefton Park School, keeping children from Bristol entertained with a variety of activities and exciting day trips. We offer full or half-day care for children aged 3-7 in the Terrapin and for children aged 8-14 years in Hut 6338, helping busy families during half-term and the summer break.

Each week, Holiday Club and Taningua club have a different theme so new experiences can be had – such as Bollywood, Vintage Sports, Circus Skills, and Japanese Pop Culture. For more information about what we’ll be up to this summer, please download our Summer Holiday Club Programme.

Booking for the Summer Holiday Club and Taningua will open on the 13th of June. Get your booking in between the 13th of June and the 7th of July to benefit from our early bird 10% discount!
