BENEFITS OF HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES

GO GO Makers Activities support the healthy development of your child in the following ways:

  • Physical Health – fresh air and exercise
  • Social skills – making new friends
  • Cognitive Development – learning new things, such as STEAM activities
  • Fine Motor skills – through arts and crafts
At the heart of each Holiday Camp is a core set of activities – listed below – which we adapt and build upon to ensure every day is as exciting as the last!

JNR Activities

for 4 to 7 year olds

Arts

Arts & Crafts

Arts & Crafts sessions enable children to take part in fun, inspirational and creative sessions, designed to engage the imagination and improve fine motor skills. Each day children will make something wonderful to bring home and share with you, to build confidence. The beauty of arts and crafts is that there isn’t a right or wrong way – children and young people can express themselves however they like! Our sessions encourage everyone to contribute to the group, which helps to build their self-esteem and show off their creativity.
Steam Club
SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS

STEAM

Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics – Our STEAM sessions are so much fun!

Children will have the opportunity to learn about science, build structures from various materials, take part in challenges, conduct experiments and even make slime. This is so important for a child’s cognitive development, to help them be curious about the world and inventive in their own way. It’s all about building, testing, and learning what’s possible – as well as what isn’t!

We support each group with age appropriate activities and always have lots of fun discovering new things.

Dance / Gymnastics / Musical Theatre

Our dance sessions offer a range of different dance styles from street dance, cheerleading, hip hop, freestyle, movement to music and so much more. It’s a great way to encourage self-expression and shake it all out!

Gymnastics sessions mainly cover floor work (with some apparatus, depending on venue and age groups) which is fantastic for improving your child’s flexibility and strength.

In Musical Theatre, sessions cover a mixture of music, singing and drama based on the Camp’s theme. Children love musical theatre and are always engaged. Taking part in any of these sessions is a great way for your child to build confidence and improve their sense of wellbeing whilst having fun. Multi Sports and Dance are run by qualified coaches to inspire, encourage and support at every level.

Sports

Sports

It’s important for children to experience a wide range of sports to aid their physical development and let them blow off steam in a way that’s fun and safe. Each of our sports sessions starts with a fun warm up, followed by a skill-based sports session.

Taking part in a range of sports is a great way for your child to build confidence and improve their wellbeing. Sports might include:- Dodgeball, Cricket, “Howler” Javelin, Football friendlies, Rounders, Cricket, PLUS many more organised sporting activities.

These sports have been selected to improve hand-eye coordination, spatial awareness, resilience and social skills. It’s amazing how much you can benefit from being active!

Archery

Archery

Archery can help build confidence and self-esteem by learning new skills and helping each other. As children practise their Archery skills more, they will be able to challenge themselves to shoot from a further distance. It’s about doing their best and we’re often amazed at the accuracy our young archers can achieve!

Children are coached in how to aim at different distances and learn to respect each other’s safety. In turn they learn self-discipline and control.

Archery is available at selected venues.

SNR Activities

for 8 to 12 year olds

Young People at GO GO Makers get to experience all JNR activities, with the benefit of these challenging sports and skills:

GO GO Makers activities - fencing
Fencing

Fencing

Our newest and most exciting activity is Fencing and Swordplay! It’s a great sport for children to experience, as it helps them to make swift decisions and think independently. Fencing quickly challenges participants’ self-belief, offering a perfect platform for those who prefer individual sports. A fast paced sport, it’s also great exercise.

Fencing also fires the imagination, allowing a fabulous way for children to ‘spar’ safely and learn their limits, whilst gaining an insight into their own potential. This has a wonderful effect on communication skills and builds trust between peers towards a memorable experience.

Find out more about this amazing activity in our blog post.

GO GO Makers activities - tie dye
Art materials

Tie Dye & Papier Mache

It’s important for kids to get messy – it’s a way to express creativity and release anxiety and often (for obvious reasons!) not possible to do at home. We offer the chance to use oodles of glue to make a unique papier mache creation, making use of recycled and new materials. Our tie dye activities help children experiment with colours, knots, and water on a journey of colour discovery! Young people always fascinate us with their flair. They get to take their creations home with them too!

GO GO Makers activities - water gun fights

Laser Tag & Water Gun Fights

Unleash the inner strategist with this fantastic team activity! Partner up or work in small groups to achieve your aim – not get hit! We may alternate between laser tag and water guns depending on the weather, with each offering the benefit of intense physical activity and teamwork. It may even help uncover natural leadership abilities which can build feelings of self-worth. We’re all on your child’s team!
GO GO Makers activities - dodgeball
Dodgeball

Dodgeball

Fast paced and high-octane, this thrilling game always gets young people smiling. The energetic nature of dodging the ball allows for some amazing acrobatics on the court, and some creative strategies! The nature of team work can always be relied upon to help kids to bond, and can result in some strong friendships – we love seeing these develop.
GO GO Makers activities - frisbee golf

Frisbee Golf

“type” activities (available at Priors Field Primary School)

It’s all about control with Frisbee Golf. Children start to understand their own strength and abilities with this skilled sport, and start making micro-adjustments to ensure they get as close to the hoop as possible. Young people will learn to control their body through improved proprioception, and focus on their goals with the help of their friends. At the end of the day, everyone has a chance to win!
GO GO Makers activities - soft lacrosse
GO GO Makers activities - soft lacrosse

Soft Lacrosse

Another exciting sport, lacrosse helps young people to learn spacial awareness and teamwork to the highest degree. They will get to use a special lacrosse stick and soft ball, and work at pace in this sport that requires strength and agility. The hand-eye coordination required for lacrosse is a great way to improve general sports ability as it stretches beyond the usual bat-and-ball games.
