'Cause kids just want to have fun

Holiday activity days

School’s out, but you’re in luck

Our action-packed kids holiday club activity days run at our four Essex Outdoors centres during the school holidays, including the summer holidays and half term. We are located across Essex at Bradwell Waterside, Danbury, Harlow and Mersea Island near Colchester.

In small groups of around 10, children will enjoy four exciting activities each day with enthusiastic and highly qualified instructors.

Sessions range from high ropes, climbing and zip wire, to water sports including canoeing and stand-up-paddleboarding, to archery, mountain biking and bushcraft.

There is no better way to keep 8-16-year-olds active and entertained, making memorable experiences in the outdoors. They’ll sleep well at night and want to come back for more. Thrilling fun and all while you work.

These fantastic value days are just £40 per child

Your children are in safe hands

Our professional instructors provide constant supervision, and all technical equipment is supplied, so all participants  need to bring is comfortable (and waterproof) clothing and footwear, as well as a packed lunch and a drink.

“I just wanted to say thank you for the great holiday activity clubs you run. My two boys have been 5 times over the last couple of weeks and have thoroughly enjoyed every single one. They have been to all sorts of holiday clubs and sports camps before and this is by far their favourite. They tell me all about it each day…and usually I can only get an ‘it was OK’ about camps or even school!”
