Covid-19 Update 

Due to venue constraints, we unfortunately will not be running our Sholing 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. 

Your child will have a great time with our friendly and enthusiastic staff team, taking part in exciting school holiday activities at the Oasis Academy Mayfield in Sholing. Utilising the fantastic facilities that the Academy has to offer, children aged 4-16 years (children must be attending school to attend Daycamps) enjoy a range of indoor and outdoor sessions, making new friends and learning new skills along the way.

Tax free childcare & childcare vouchers

We now accept tax free childcare payments along with childcare vouchers for Daycamp bookings.  Tax free childcare enables you to receive up to £2000 to help with the costs of childcare – find out more.

For further information on paying by these methods, please visit our booking conditions.

What will children achieve?

Daycamps are great and offer children a choice of 3 activities per session, offering:

  • an opportunity to socialise with a group of other children of similar age and make new friend
  • participation in games and activities to further their physical, emotional and creative development
  • an opportunity to try new experiences and skills

Our work with the under 8s is registered with Ofsted  We have a ratio of 1:8 for under 8s and 1:12 for over 8s.
