Shortbreaks Service - May Holiday Club Programme 2020
The Shortbreaks May Holiday Club runs for 4 days and is packed full of great activities, plenty of outdoor fun and offers parents and carers a brilliant programme of variety and first class services for children and young people throughout the traditional School Holidays.
Each day we run a completely different programme. No one day is the same! Typical of the time of year our focus is on Spring themes and plenty of outdoor activities utilising the natural resources at this time of year. We offer crafts, country sports, challenges, games and of course our live animals.
