8-9 Year Activities

Ultimate Summer & Easter Camps for 8-9-Year-Olds

Ultimate Activity Camps for 8 to 9 year olds

Non-stop Fun For Older and Bolder Kids!

As children get older, we know they want bigger, better and faster. Enter our Ultimate Activity Easter and summer camps for 8-9-year-olds.

From age 8+ we begin to introduce our hero activities. These include all-time favourites such as Zorbing, Archery & Combat Archery, Fencing and UniHoc.

Teamwork and socialising are important factors across all our camps. As such, kids can enjoy our 'Wide Game' sessions. These sessions bring all the children together where they can mix and enjoy larger team-building activities – a real ‘holiday camp’ pastime.

Here's a sample daily timetable - activities change every day and week. 

8-9 Years Sample Timetable

New Easter and summer camp experiences each day that 8-9 year-olds will love

As well as providing safe activities and experienced staff, our activities encourage a positive physical and mental impact on a child's well-being. For more information on how we promote the welfare of children in our care, view our 'Why Choose Us?' page.

The camp's average staff-to-child ratio is 1:8. This ensures that all children get the care, attention, and guidance they need to get the most out of each activity.

During activities, we actively group children with those of a similar age. This means they get the right level of childcare and instruction, and it makes it much easier for them to make new friends. 

Activity Length

Whether it's active play or arts and crafts, there's no shortage of activities that will engage and inspire.

Each activity lasts 50 minutes, which allows plenty of time for each child to have a good go at them. In the afternoon, we then offer children the option to focus on sports, games, or arts activities – it’s completely up to them!

Where available, Zorbing and Ultimate Inflatable activities are rotated around locations. This is to ensure that both activities are available at least once a week for children.

Camp Activities

Which activities are included in the price?

All timetable activities are included in the price, so you know your child will be able to try every activity scheduled to run each day. The full range of activities we offer is so extensive that one day just isn’t long enough to run all of them every day but most of them will be offered through the course of a week. We do occasionally have to change an activity from a timetable due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, but we’ll try to re-timetable them as soon as possible.

Are all activities available at every location?

Activities available depend on specific location facilities. Please see the location pages for more detail.

When can I find out the timetable of activities for the days that I’ve booked?

Due to late bookings, weather conditions and changing numbers of children on camp, timetables are confirmed a week beforehand however please note that these will not be published on our website. If you would like to view the timetable please get in touch and we will be happy to email you a copy for your child's group at camp. Our sample timetables are actual timetables from previous seasons and show the mix and type of activities children can expect.

How often will my child swim?

If the location has swimming facilities available, we aim to run swimming sessions for each age group at least twice a week.

What does the swimming session consist of?

The swimming activity is a structured session. To start with, children will undergo a short assessment with the lifeguard to assess their swimming abilities. This consists of a swim across the width of the pool; children may use armbands or floats, which are provided. If the children have any swimming aid that they particularly like to use, they can of course bring this along with them.
The instructor coaches the children through working on skills and enjoying games together. There are always at least two members of staff during a swimming session – one of whom is a fully-trained lifeguard. For children under the age of 8, we will have one instructor in the pool and one on poolside, along with the lifeguard.
