From full day sports and culture Holiday camps to short classes – there are a huge variety of ways to entertain and educate your children this summer in Aberdeenshire.
8 venues across Aberdeenshire will host full day holiday camps over the summer school holidays. These are designed to meet the need for childcare as well as to be an exciting and stimulating way for children to spend time having fun and making new friends whilst being well looked after. Stonehaven, Alford, Huntly, Turriff, Ellon, Peterhead, Fraserburgh and Banff will all host camps which will combine sporting activities led by experienced coaches and leaders as well as activities provided by the Aberdeenshire Library and Information Service including computer programming and storytelling.
The Holiday camps run from 9am to 5pm with full and half day options. Children can be dropped off to be looked after from 7:30am and picked up at 6pm. Places can be booked online or over the counter.
The Holiday camps are always popular as these parents from last summer attest:
“I was a bit concerned about how my 5 year old would get on, but she absolutely loved the camp! In my view this is the best camp my children have ever attended, and this was largely due to how wonderful and enthusiastic the Leaders were with the children”
“Staff were professional and I felt confident leaving my child in their care”
“It was an excellent camp, easy and straightforward and my daughter was delighted with the experience!”
All the camps involve lots of swimming and sports activities including visits from the mobile climbing wall, body zorbs and bike track. In addition this year’s activities include:
NERFF Wars at Ellon, Fire Station visit at Turriff, Rookie Water Safety at Banff, Creepy Critters in Stonehaven, Simple Science at Alford, Skiing and Tubing at Alford and Huntly,
