8 - 9 Year Old Holiday Activities

Ultimate Choice - make your day!

As children get older, we know they want to be more in control of what they do which is why every day the over 8’s have ‘Choice’ guided activities where they can tailor their Ultimate experience to include more of what they like. Ultimate Choice is a great way for children to spend more time doing the activities they really enjoy. As well as providing safe activities and experienced staff, our activities encourages the physical welfare of children. Click here for details about how we ensure your child's welfare while in our care.

We also get all children in this age group together for 'Wide Game' sessions where they mix to enjoy team activities. Here's a sample weekly timetable - activities change every day!

8-9 activity timetable

Something new every day

With a camp average staff to child ratio of 1:8, children will get the care, attention and guidance they need to get the most out of the activities. They will be grouped with children of a similar age which means they get the right level of childcare and instruction, making it easier to make new friends. With a massive range of activities on offer, there’s no shortage of options whether it’s action and active, or art and craft. Each activity lasts 50 minutes, plenty of time to have a good go at the activity and in the afternoon children have options which means they can focus on sports, games or arts activities – it’s up to them. Zorbing and Ultimate Inflatables are rotated around all locations to ensure that it is available each week for children, but not every day.

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.
