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 fun, engaging and tailored to individual and group needs. Sessions can include hands-on cooking, environmental arts, recycled art, den building, pond dipping, forest activities and gardening. All activities are led by our team of tutors with vast experience teaching children with a variety of additional needs. The sessions are designed to help develop skills, confidence and self-esteem in a safe, fun environment.
The Club is for young people - parents/carers are not required to stay.
