Active and Inspiring!

Activate Camps is the leading provider of active and inspiring sport specific and multi activity childcare camps in the UK. Over the last 17 years we have entertained over 145,000 children on our camps. Each year we operate over 150 camps across the UK, delivering multi activity camps, together with specific sports courses including The Cricket Academy and Netball Fever.

On many of our sport specific camps we work with current and former athletes who want to inspire the next generation.

You’ll find all the athletes we work with visiting courses over the school holidays, giving children a unique opportunity to meet sporting role models and learn from them first hand. If it isn’t our main ambassadors themselves then some of their sporting friends will help inspire the camps.

On our Multi Activity Camps, we work with fantastic partners to deliver exciting and engaging themes to make sure every camp is packed full of fun.

We provide a unique childcare service for parents, combining sport, activities, sporting role models and challenges. We are more than just holiday camps; we are “Active and Inspiring Childcare”.

Safe and approved

We are dedicated to the safety of all our children, staff and parents. We are Ofsted registered, which means every camp adheres to and often exceeds Ofsted’s holiday camps best practice.

We employ qualified instructors who have a wealth of experience in childcare and sports provision. The care of every child is at the heart of everything we do and we are the only holiday camp childcare provider to have our staff training accredited by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).

We are industry leaders in the risk management and incident reporting processes for our camps. Over the past 5 years we have implemented Proactive Risk Management across all our camps ensuring that risk management and incident reporting is a company wide concern and not simply left to staff on site.

Take The Challenge, Be At Your Best

Our coaches work hard to create a safe, fun and engaging atmosphere that encourages every child to take the challenge to be at their best during their camp and beyond.

Every camp includes a variety of challenges to inspire children to improve on their best at all times. These challenges come in a variety of formats from Crazy Catch and ambassador sessions to our new challenge cards!

Our coaching is always age-appropriate and offer lots of choice for both boys and girls to extend their skills and BE AT THEIR BEST
