SportBU Kids’ holiday camps

Enquire now

Kids Camps will be back for Christmas – 21/22/23rd December. Bookings open in November.

We know that keeping kids occupied over the school holidays can, at times, be a challenge.

That’s why our Kids’ Holiday Camps, available for children aged 8–14 years old, are packed full of different sports and games, designed to keep them active and entertained all day long.

Available over the Christmas, Easter and summer holidays, our camps offer a variety of games and sports including multi-sport activities, football, badminton, basketball, volleyball and capture the flag.

What’s more, you can rest assured that our camps take place in a safe and supportive environment on our Talbot Campus, led by sports coaches who have a rich sporting background and are DBS checked.

Please note: all SportBU Kids activities have regrettably been cancelled until 01 August 2020. Please note that this is subject to BU & Government guidelines and could change. We will do our best to keep you updated with any changes if they occur.

At the end of the session

To collect your child(ren), you will be required to provide the SportBU Receptionist with a collection password. If you won’t be collecting your child(ren), you will need to share the password with the designated adult who will be picking up.

If you would like your child to walk home on their own, you (or a designated adult) will need to complete a ‘walking home’ form on the first day of camp and hand it in to reception.

Super Saturdays

Our ‘Super Saturdays’ programme is designed to keep kids aged 5-14 active in a fun and engaging way by introducing them to a range of sports.

Our action-packed Neon Nerf Wars party sees children running and ducking for cover as they battle their way through the tunnels, camo nets and obstacles.

SportBU kids’ parties

Our kids’ parties are a brilliant way to celebrate your child’s special day. We offer a range of parties including General Sports (where kids enjoy a selection of sports), through to Neon Nerf Wars, magic shows and more.
