School’s Out, Get Active Programme
FREE SCHOOL SUMMER HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES AVAILABLE
Summer is almost here and what better way for the kids to spend their holiday than taking part in exciting activities and making new friends?
It can be tough for parents finding things to occupy little ones during the holidays. That’s why Barking and Dagenham council are hosting a variety of sports and physical activity camps.
Attending a camp is a great way for children to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, learn new skills and mingle with kids outside their immediate circle. It’s a growing experience that will make them better people, with brighter memories of their school holidays.
Who the programme is for: Young people and children who live or go to school in the area
Activities will be available from Monday 26 July until Friday 27 August 2021

Activities include Cooking, Dance, Fitness, Cricket, Marching & drumming, carnival workshops, arts & crafts and much more. All attending children will be provided with a free lunch each day!
