What to expect this October Half Term

The anticipation is building, and as our half term holiday camps approach, get ready for an exhilarating holiday of non-stop fun! We’ve curated an action-packed schedule that promises laughter, learning, and a whole lot of excitement. Here’s a sneak peek into what your little ones can expect during this upcoming half term break.

The Monster giant inflatable at Activ Camps

Giant Inflatables – Available every single day!

Every holiday at Activ Camps, the thrill of adventure takes centre stage with an extraordinary array of colossal inflatable slides, challenging assault courses, and a ‘Total Wipeout’ style last-person standing experience. This unique offering sets Activ Camps apart, and the excitement only intensifies as these inflatables will rotate from camp to camp every couple of days.

This half term will see The Monster, The Jungle Run, The Mega Slide, The Tunnel, The Mountain, The Toaster and The Sweeper all making their way to our five half term camps. Browse which ones will be coming to a holiday camp near you via our timetable programmes below, and see pictures of each of these inflatables on our Giant Inflatables page.

Swimming is back at Burntwood, Emanuel & St Paul’s School

We will be enjoying fun, relaxed and safe Pool Fun sessions at three of our five venues this half term. Nothing beats the joy of splashing around and playing Marco Polo during a school holiday. It’s the perfect way to enjoy your time off, whilst boosting ability and confidence in the water in a very safe and well-supervised setting.

Burntwood School also sees the return of the After Camp Swim Club. This is an extra session of Pool Fun after the camp day ends from 16:30. This also allows for a later pick up until 18:00. Swimming will still be run for those signed up for the normal camp day, 08:30 – 16:30, so do still bring your children’s swimming kit. However, this session due to timetabling constraints will be less readily available and therefore, After Camps Swim Club guarantees your child a swim each day

Halloween Day at Activ Camps

Halloween Day on October 26th – Join in on the magic and come in your best fancy dress!

Get ready for a day filled with eerily fantastic costumes, spine-chilling decorations, and a line-up of activities that will make this Halloween Day truly unforgettable.

Here’s what to expect:

Dress to impress – spookily: We’re eagerly anticipating some fantastic outfits but, if dressing up or Halloween isn’t your cup of pumpkin soup, the activities will certainly be enough to ensure a great day at camp!

Prizes galore throughout the day: Throughout the day, there will be surprises and prizes lurking around every corner.

Devilishly decorated sites: Our decorations are set to cast a spell and add a dash of spooky enchantment to the atmosphere.

You can take part by booking Thursday, the 26th of October at any of our five half term camps.

Invasion Games 

Engage in exhilarating games at Activ Camps that are sure to get your heart racing! Enjoy Capture the Flag and 40-40 Homie, where kids collaborate in teams or go solo to conquer areas guarded by ‘catchers’ and snatch treasures or make a dash for safety. It’s a high-energy workout, requiring agile moves to outsmart catchers and reach victory. With strategic planning time, teams decide on the best approach, capitalising on individual and team strengths. These Invasion Games not only offer a thrilling experience but also foster the skills, strength, and stamina crucial for mainstream team sports like rugby, football, and hockey.

Get ready this half term to stretch those legs, accelerate to full speed, and revel in the strategic thrill of victory!

Crazy relays at Activ Camps

Crazy Games 

Get ready to unleash your wild side with Activ Camps’ ‘Crazy Games’ – a series designed for non-stop fun and a dash of silliness! There’s ‘Uber-Olympics’, where equipment has seemingly quadrupled in size, and Run the Gauntlet, where kids dodge and duck through a gauntlet of balls before executing their most spectacular dive onto a giant mat. Then there’s Freak Out, a game with countless bouncing coloured balls that must be captured before the opposing teams can. These often hilarious and consistently unconventional challenges guarantee fantastic fun for all. Embrace the wacky and enjoy a laughter-filled adventure at Activ Camps this half term!
