We provide an inspiring and rich environment where children can learn new skills, work with natural materials and explore the magic of woodland.
Some of the activities will include den building, singing, bushcraft, cooking and storytelling around the campfire as well as whittling, woodwork, clay, weaving, felting and spinning with wool as well as mindfulness games and lots more.
Combe Grove’s market garden and Ralph Allen Farm provides the children with extra activities where they can grow and harvest vegetables, identify and forage edible plants and feed animals.
The children have a range of activities to choose from and time for free play in an exciting, open-ended environment with a mud kitchen, sandpit, playhouse and shelter.
Sessions are for children only.

We have introduced a number of measures in order to make our holiday clubs as covid-secure as possible. You can read about these in our Coronavirus Update. We are also closely following the government guidance for out-of-school settings during the outbreak. Changes that we have made specific to our holiday club offering are: group size at 15 children (with two experienced leaders), accepting block bookings only and asking parents to drop off and pick up from the camp itself, to avoid groups gathering.
Government guidance currently dictates that all holiday clubs must be booked in blocks, to limit mixing of social bubbles. Parents are also requested not to send children to multiple clubs throughout the holidays.
