Each Club will be offering Full Days 8am-6pm, Short Days 9am-3pm and Morning Sessions 9am-1pm.


Expect the UnExpected…


No day is ever the same at a Practically Family Holiday Club. It’s all about the kids! From den builders to big gamers, budding bakers to portrait painters, we understand that children are unique, creative and adventurous. They want to spend their school holidays discovering something new and exciting, going on an adventure with new friends and old friends, building their confidence and most importantly, having fun!

We’re all about friendship & teamwork – no one is left behind! Your introvert, your shy little man, your day dreamer, your aimless wanderer, even your competitive natural born leader! We’ve got them covered.


Bubble Up!


We also know that our many of our mini clubbers like routine and a familiar face, which is why we’ve decided to keep our smaller groups. Even though we’re not under the same Covid-19 restrictions as before, it turns out that everyone LOVES a bubble! The children found it less overwhelming, they were able to buddy up with their pals more easily, and they formed really close bonds with their bubble leaders and assistants, which means activities could be designed to best suit the children in their bubble. All in all, they were a BIG hit.

The only difference this summer is that YOU choose your child’s bubble. Siblings do not need to be together (if they don’t want to be ?) and you can book different bubbles if different friends are coming on different weeks. Really, it’s down to you to decide which bubble is the right fit for your child. Oh! How good is it to have a bit of choice and flexibility back?!


The SUMMERSTOCK Line Up


Every festival needs a headline act and, in the eyes of the children, that’s our super-star bubble leaders and assistants.  They’re one of the gang, full of energy, enthusiasm and total awesomeness. But don’t be fooled…all our team are fully teacher and childcare qualified so will be developing child led play, guided by the early years and key stage frameworks. Sshhhh the kids will be learning, and they won’t even know it!

Each morning our bubble leaders will meet their bubble-clubbers and take them to their very own festival tent on the field…their 'Bubble Base,' for SUMMERSTOCK. They will be filling it full of weird and wonderful things they have made and created and decorating it in their bubble colour.

To help the children bond, they will develop their own chant, handshake, flag and maybe even a secret language! And that’s before we get into the slime making, tree climbing, sports days, board games, water balloons, arts and crafts, tower building, party games, team challenges and mud kitchens…


What to Bring?


We like to keep it simple. One backpack with a drink, sunscreen and spare clothes is perfect! Hopefully, we’ll be basking in sunshine, so swimwear, towel and dry clothes is a good idea…let’s hope we won’t be needing coats and gloves, but pack for a typical British summer. Please do involve them in packing their backpack so that they know what belongs to them!

We’ll have an abundance of healthy snacks and water to drink. You can either bring a packed lunch or, once you have booked your child’s place, we will contact you with the option of us providing a cold lunch.

We are so excited to see lots of familiar and new faces at our Holiday Clubs this year. To find out more and book your place, visit our Holiday Club page. Let SUMMERSTOCK commence!
