Holiday Clubs in Cheltenham: Summer 2019


The Summer 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)

Our Summer School consists of Acting, Musical Theatre and Technical Courses which culminate in a presentation of their group pieces on stage at the Playhouse Theatre on the Friday evening for family and friends.

During the first part of the week, students take part in specialised workshops run by professional tutors in acting, singing, dance and movement, combat, voice as well as script work. The second part of the week is dedicated to the end of show performances, led by our professional directors. Our Technical Course will learn about the various roles undertaken behind the scenes, such as lighting, sound, set design, set construction and special effects.

The Course will finish with a fully costumed production backed up by the technical support of those students on the Technical Backstage Course.

Move More Activity 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.
