Themed Days & Activities

Our themed days for 2019

Themes were a highlight for the children at our 2018 Summer Camp and will be an exciting part of our 2019 Camp. We are delighted to be able to share the themes below. For those children who have been part of our Camp before they will see some familiar favourites again this year as well as new ones such as Ninjas! Daily activities will build in the themes and your child is more than welcome to come to Camp in fancy dress to fully immerse themselves in the day if they wish.

What format does the Camp take each day?

When children arrive at the Camp each morning they will make their way to either the Sand, Sun or Sea room depending on their age group.  These rooms will be used to register the children in and as a base to store jumpers, hats and packed lunch boxes. 

Each day activities will be introduced to all the children and will take place on a rolling timetable. They will be themed to match our daily Camp theme especially when it comes to arts and crafts. Children are more than welcome to come to Camp in themed fancy dress if they wish. We plan to run at least 6 activities every day with a mix of sport or arts and crafts. 

For our 2019 Camp we are delighted to also offer the Saxon pool as an additional play activity for children to take part in each day. Play for all swim sessions will be closely monitored by a trained lifeguard at all times as well as a Camp team member. Children will be able to use the pool with others of a similar age range to ensure all children, regardless of their swimming ability, are able to enjoy their time in the pool.

What is on for the youngest children at the Camp?

For our 3 and 4 year olds we will have dedicated play areas and activities led by an experienced Lumen Early Years teacher, to ensure that our youngest Camp children do not feel overwhelmed ​and also receive the more concentrated supervision they need.

Can my child play with their best friend who will also be at the Camp?

We understand that children may have their own friendship groups also attending Camp and we want all children, regardless of age, to feel comfortable and happy at the Camp. There are various points during the day where friends can take part in activities together if they so wish - sometimes having a friend nearby can help with any shyness when mixing with a new group of children.​
