What are Hi-5 Day Camps?

Hi-5 day camps take place during the school holidays and are delivered by trained Activity Leaders. Leaders will supervise children throughout the day until they are collected by a nominated person.

Each day children will be offered a range of activities to ensure that all children can find something they will enjoy.

Arts & Crafts: Children can be creative with activities such as painting, drawing, mask making and t-shirt decorating.

Outdoor Sports: Games include football, netball, rounders, basketball and cricket.

Fun & Games: Games include parachute games, playground games and drama activities.


All Activity Leaders have received Emergency First Aid training and Child Protection training. All leaders have also had an Enhanced DBS check.

How many staff will be there?

Hi-5 Day Camps operate on a ratio of 1 Activity Leader to 8 children.

What should your child bring?

Children should be dressed appropriately for activities such as painting, crafts and indoor/outdoor sports.

Bring a packed lunch and drinks (pack plenty as it's a long day!)

Do the children need to bring money?

No, however children can bring money for vending machines (may not be available at all venues), although staff will not be responsible for this.

Please note: We are unable to accept childcare vouchers.
