Feb half term holiday childcare
Thu February 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm GMT£40
Our Holiday Clubs are for children aged between 4* and 14. On an ‘Explorer Day’ we journey from our house, exploring a series of wild places along the way. We don’t go far, but it always feels like an adventure! Every day is different. We usually set up camp for a part of the day with shelters, hammocks or a swing. Sometimes older groups take a longer walk with a series of stops at interesting spots. We often light a campfire for cooking then we feast, play and do crafts. These groups are small, typically 10 children with 2 or 3 adults and usually some young volunteers 14-16*. We leave no trace and come back full of stories and fresh air.
We share the details of our day in a hand-written journal, and every family gets to keep a copy.
* If your child is 4 and still too young to be at school please contact us before you book to discuss whether they are developmentally mature enough to enjoy the day.
*If your child worries that they might be the oldest in the group then please do get in touch and we can tell you the ages of the children in the group.
*Have you got a teenager at home with a flair for organising people, teaching, chatting, crafting? Swainswick Explorers is a play project, running holiday experiences for 4-14 year olds, based in Upper Swainswick village on the north east side of Bath, so not far from Bradford On Avon. We absolutely love having young people on ALL our events and offer work experience for those aged 14+.
If your son or daughter like the outdoors or being with children or learning new crafts and teaching them, this could be an enjoyable work placement or volunteering opportunity for them. We tend to recruit our young staff from this pool of volunteers, so it can lead onto paid work for those aged 16+.
