If you’re looking for something fun, educational and active for your kids to do during the holidays, look no further! Below are testimonials from parents who have used SCS camps before:

We genuinely cannot recommend SCS coaching enough, we have two boys aged 8 and 6 and they look forward to the school holidays so much just so that they can go to the sports camp. They love the staff and the variety of activities that they have each day, swimming is a highlight for my eldest child. They also enjoy meeting children from other schools as well as their own, so we cannot thank you enough for providing such a rewarding, reliable and trustworthy camp for our boys, we would be lost without you! Mr & Mrs Burnley

The camp is run by experienced sports coaches who have worked in schools and are DBS checked. The camps are held at Gateways School, Harewood with swimming sessions at Wetherby Leisure Centre (transport included). The camps run from 9.30-4.00pm with wraparound care available from 8.30 to 5pm.

Sporting Influence May Half Term

Sporting Influence are excited to again be holding a fun and active camp every day during the May Half Term School Holidays (exc. Bank Holidays).

A typical day at camp will consist of up 5 hours of fun activity including games, sports and arts & crafts. Every hour we offer up to 4 different activities and in a day there will be around 10–15 activities taking place at camp. These activities vary from traditional sports such as football, netball and tennis, to more modern sports such as tchoukball and klask.

We also put a big emphasis on TEAM GAMES, encouraging the children to play as a team and develop their social skills. As we have now held camps for a number of years we have also developed a large catalogue of fun, engaging and topical games which the children absolutely love. In addition to our games we also offer SWIMMING and ARTS & CRAFTS every day!!!

Using the excellent facilities at Harrogate Ladies College your child is bound to love our friendly and fun camps.

A standard day would be from 9am – 3:30pm, but we also offer an early drop off service, from 8:00am, & a late pick up service, until 5:30pm.
