What is HITZ?

Our Holiday In the Zone (or HITZ Club as we like to call it!) runs every school holiday and this Summer we are offering something even better!!!!! 

Rather than being focused around trips we will have a weekly theme.  We will be using our fantastic building and outside areas for most of our activities, welcoming visitors to HITZ to share their activities with us and having a few activities at other venues. 

Every day will be packed with activities to join in, have a go and maybe try for the first time.  There will be sports, games, challenges, cooking, arts & crafts, singing, dancing, bush craft, yoga …. but most of all FUN!!!!!

HITZ will run for 5 weeks of the Summer 2018 from Monday 30th July through to Friday 31st August for our members aged 8-12, with for this Summer only – breakfast and lunch is included for £13 per day.  Our activities and themes vary every holiday to ensure you’ll never get bored with us. Please note the Department for Education is part funding the 2018 Summer Holiday Club. 

Bookings are now being taken for HITZ Holiday Club at Carlisle Youth Zone. This is strictly on a first come first served basis.

Information for parents:

  • We can only accept HITZ members between the ages of 8 and 12
  • You must have an active CYZ membership to attend
  • We do have maximum capacity limits on days – we need these sometimes due to a trip, but also we need to plan our staffing in advance.
  • Whilst we try to keep the price to £13 per day to include the trip – occasionally we cannot do this and need a top up payment for trips.
