October Half Term Holiday Club Guide


October half term is 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.

But 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

Camp 4-2-11 (mention 'Cheltenham Rocks' for a 10% discount)

Camp 4-2-11 is a Cheltenham based, family run camp for children ages 3-14. We open during the Easter & Summer holidays and October Half term, and 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 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.
