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. Daycamps are available from 9.00am-3.00pm, with the option of extending the fun from 8am-6pm.

We will no longer be running Daycamps over the Easter holidays from Tuesday 6th – Friday 16th April 2021. Please keep checking our website and social media channels for updates for May and Summer holidays.
