Holiday & Saturday Club for 8 - 17 year olds
Supported by Kent County Council, our holiday club for young people provides a natural break for children with additional needs and their families.
The club is for 8-17 year olds living in Kent. Activities are tailored to individual and group needs and include hands-on cooking, environmental arts, recycled art, brickmaking, den building, pond dipping, forest activities and gardening. All activities are led by our qualified team of tutors who have more than 20 years experience teaching children with a variety of additional needs. The sessions will be age differentiated and help to develop skills, confidence and self esteem appropriate to need and interests.
This is a club for young people - carers/parents are not required to stay. Parents or carers who want to know more please contact BeckyB@boreplace.org 01732 463255. If you are working with a young person and their family and think this might be for them, please get in touch too.
