The best school holidays ever!

What could be better than giving your child the gift of magical childhood memories?

Portsmouth Daycamps offers your child the chance to have fun, indoors and outdoors with friends, both old and new, to connect with positive role models, and gives them a break from the pressures and stress of school and everyday life.

With a wide choice of craft and physical activities for children in YR - Y11, there’s something to interest every child. Located at the Mountbatten Centre, Alex Way, Hilsea, PO2 9QA.

The friendly YMCA Portsmouth team has been welcoming children and young people to Portsmouth school holiday playschemes for over twenty years, so you can rest assured they’re in the best hands.
