During Holiday Clubs we offer a hugely varied range of activities and trips such as Kitchen Science & STEM, Arts & Crafts, Water Colour painting, Board games, Reading, Football, Dance, Movies, Loose Parts Play, Den building, Dressing up, Imaginative Play, Outdoor Play, Campfires, Gardening & Conservation and Bio Diversity Projects.
Additionally, we go on educational, fun trips and activities in and around Aberdeen City.

Parks and Beaches for picnics and where the children have freedom to explore in the outdoors. We do baking, cooking, make our own pizzas to eat for our lunch and toast marshmallows on a campfire.
In warmer months we organise our popular Water Splash Days where children play outdoors with Slip’N’Slide, water balloons, water soakers and generally have great fun in the water.
