Holiday Clubs in Cheltenham: Easter 2019


The Easter Holidays are on the horizon and we've started to round up some holiday clubs in Cheltenham offering fun and educational activities for children throughout the holidays.

Apart from easing childcare headaches for working parents, many of these clubs have been created with learning and development in mind, offering life skills, training and confidence-building, letting kids come away with new skills learnt in a safe, supportive environment.

Featured Holiday Clubs in Cheltenham

Theatre Studio (use code cheltrocks for 10% off)


Join us this Easter Holidays for our exciting Easter Workshops…. Come be part of the adventures of ‘Dragon Days” and perform onstage at the Cheltenham Playhouse to friends and family.

In the pretty, alpine village of Stumbledorf (just a short ‘trip’ away), the overdramatic villagers await a hero to rescue them from the mythical creature whose presence overshadows their otherwise idyllic mountain home. Just in the nick of time, seemingly in fulfilment of an ancient prophecy given by three wizened old crones, Tommy Rumble and his fearsome mother stumble into Stumbledorf, which causes great excitement. Will the village ever be free of its Dragon Days? There’s only one way to find out…

Camp 4-2-11 (use code cheltrocks10 for 10% off)

Camp 4-2-11 is a Cheltenham based, family run camp for children ages 3-14. We offer a creative alternative to sports-based camps. We have just been awarded OUTSTANDING by Ofsted

We run exciting themed weeks, workshops, and jam-pack the schedule with mindfulness, swimming, arts and craft, drama, music, games, quests, archery, baking and more.

Being independent we are flexible and while we have a fully structured programme of activity we are child-led and listen to what the group wants to do. Impromptu games of bench ball, rounders or water fights are common, as are quiet time activities after particularly lively swimming sessions.

We welcome all children and are very happy to try and accommodate any special requirements or individual needs.

Move More Camps

Move More camps are all about children being active, learning new skills, trying new sports and developing their fundamental movement skills. We have a no screens policy at our camps. We feel this is a really important aspect, we know that parents feel that children spend enough time on screens, therefore at camp children take part in a variety of different activities, there will be some down times throughout the day, as it is a long day for children to be active throughout, but these will be filled with activities such as arts & crafts or board games.

Balcarras - 8th-18th April - 4-12 years old, 4 year olds ½ day only
Grangefield - 8th-18th April - 4-12 years old, 4 year olds ½ day only
Warden Hill - 8th-12th April (only first week due to school repairs) - 4-12 years old, 4 year olds ½ day only
