Covid-19 Update 

Due to venue constraints, we unfortunately will not be running our Lord’s Hill Daycamps over the Summer holidays 2020. We will be offering 2 weeks of Daycamps at YMCA Millbrook from 3rd – 14th August. For more information, click here. 

School holidays the YMCA Way come to Lord’s Hill! Your child will create fantastic memories and lasting friendships at our Southampton Lord’s Hill Daycamps based at the Oasis Academy.  Exciting school holiday activity programmes offer children aged 4-16 years (children must be attending school to attend Daycamps) a range of indoor and outdoor sessions, with something to interest every child.

Tax free childcare & childcare vouchers

What will children achieve?

Daycamps offer children a choice of 3 activities per session, where they can:

  • socialise with a group of other children of similar age and make new friends
  • participate in games and activities to further their physical, emotional and creative development
