HITZ - Holiday Club

What is HITZ?

Our Holiday In the Zone (or HITZ Club as we like to call it!) runs every school holiday and is open to all our members aged 8-12

Every day is packed with activities to join in, have a go and maybe try for the first time.

There will be all sorts of sports, games, challenges, cooking, arts & crafts, singing, dancing, bush craft, yoga …. but most of all FUN!!!!!

There are 3 or 4 activities at any one time and these change hourly, and every day is different.

Do I need to book?

Booking is essential for our HITZ holiday programme. Spaces are allocated strictly on a first come first served basis – there are NO places available on the day.

All bookings MUST be made in advance (You can do this through our website right up until the day as long as there is still availability) – If you turn up on the day without a booking, we may be unable to accommodate you.

Bookings are now available for full days, or half days (AM or PM)
