Join us for a fun-filled gymnastic day! Our camps are designed for any gymnastic ability, whether you’ve taken part in gymnastics before, either with us or another club, or are a complete beginner. Gymnasts can expect to have an action-packed day, learning new gymnastic and acrobatic skills, going on all our exciting equipment (including our new inflatable rainbow trampoline wheel!), and playing games!

Camps can be booked for individual days or for the full 3 days (a discount will be applied when you book for the full 3 days!).

Please note gymnasts will need to bring their own packed lunch and drink. They can also bring a morning and afternoon snack.


Our summer camps will be at the following times and locations, with all classes aimed for children aged 6-13 years:


Tuesday 2nd, Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th August

Harrogate High School

9:30-2:00 each day

Holiday Club age 5 – 14 – 9am-4pm

Good news! Our holiday club days are back for 3 days in May and for 3 days of each week of the Summer holidays!

We follow the children’s lead with free play and exploration being a big part of the day. Our highly qualified and experienced staff will also plan activities such as den/shelter building, fire lighting, outdoor cooking, team games, woodwork, tool use, and nature-based craft giving each participant an opportunity to learn about and connect to the natural environment, problem solve, and enjoy being part of a team.

Holiday clubs are available to book for one off’s or regularly. We highly recommend booking regularly though as not only does it work out cheaper for you, but it gives the children time to practice and develop their skills for a truer Forest School experience.

This Summer we are also introducing some specific days for 10-14 year olds in which we will be leaving the base camp behind and venturing past the ‘humpety hill’ with our bag of tools, equipment and skills to deliver a wild day of fun. We will be finding our own home for the day, building our new base, creating shelter, fire, entertainment, cooking and developing skills and confidence.
