Move More Camps

We believe that a love of physical activity should be instilled in all children, giving them the foundation to lead a healthy, active lifestyle; this is the ethos of our camps. In term time, we are PE experts and specialist sports coaches. We support schools to enhance the quality of physical activity, PE and school sport. During the holidays we want to continue offering opportunities for children to be active! However, we don’t just stop at physical activity; our camps are full of other engaging activities such as fun games, arts and crafts! Our camps are for children aged 4-12 or 3-7 (Early Years); please refer to our guidance for details on this.
