The Holiday Academy is a day camp for children during the school holidays. It provides creative and engaging activities such as art, drama, music, and sports. The camp is held at the Cavendish School in Camden, but is open to all children.
Perfect for parents who have to work over half-term or the summer holidays, you can drop your kids off at 8.30am, then head off. You can either book them in for a full day, which lasts till 4pm, or collect them half-time at 1pm. There is also the option of an extended 6pm pick up, where your children can have a one-to-one music, singing, or sports lesson, followed by group stories, art, and games.
There are four age groups (3-4, 5-7, 8-9, 10-12), but the staff are flexible. For example, if siblings want to be in the same group, or children want to do one activity all day long, then they are free to swap.
