National Play Day

Stratford-on-Avon District Council hosted a National Playday event at Stratford-upon-Avon Recreation Ground (by the bandstand) on Wednesday 1st August. Free activities on offer included face painting, circus skills, climbing wall, bouncy castle, animal experience and many more! (all activities were free of charge and no booking required)

Playday is a national event that encourages families to go out and play at one of the many events that take place up and down the country.

Playday (co-ordinated by Play England) aims to emphasise the importance of play in children's lives.

For more information about Playday visit the National Playday website.

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.
