Activities for everyone

From the minute our doors open until the very last child is picked up, every day at Alleyn’s Holiday Camp is packed full to the brim with action, adventure and fun.  Our Holiday Camp is open to everyone, not just those attending school at Alleyn's

Our 30 acre site in Dulwich is the perfect location for a multi-sport activity camp.  A full range of physical activities gets hearts pumping and there is even the option to indulge a creative side with a daily arts and crafts session held in our well-resourced art classroom.

Our camps are led by qualified teachers who understand how to maximise fun within a safe environment.  With an emphasis on participation to help children acquire new skills and confidence, and to make new friends, our friendly team ensure that every day is bursting with variety and enjoyment.

Each day is carefully planned in advance so that there is something for everyone to choose from. 

Activities on offer may include; swimming, football, dodgeball, kwik cricket, gymnastics and trampolining, table tennis, adventure playground, benchball, rollerball, rounders, basketball, netball, capture the flag, mini Olympics, unihoc, parachute games, frisbee and lots of opportunity for arts and crafts.  If a particular sport or game is requested we will do our best to include it within the day's schedule.

When taking breaks the children play together using board games, lego, colouring sheets or they may read a book if they prefer some quiet time. 

We run throughout the year outside Alleyn's School term-time (including half-terms, Easter and summer holidays). We welcome children attending school between Years 1 and 7 (inclusive); we are unable to host attending school in Reception.

Our standard day runs from 9.00 am to 4.30 pm.  Registration opens at 9.00 am.  Activities start at 9.30 am and continue until 4.15 pm. Children must be collected by 4.45 pm.

We also offer extended days; for a £7.50 supplement (per child, per day) children may be dropped off early between 8.00 am and 9.00 am and collected between 4.45 pm and 6.00 pm. 

Swimming

Unique to our camp, we provide every child with a structured swimming lesson each day. These sessions are delivered by our team of in-house ASA qualified swimming teachers in our state of the art pool.

Children who are unable to swim, who are learning to swim or who are unsure around water will work in small groups with their own dedicated swimming teacher to improve their abilities and increase their confidence.

For those who are already able and confident swimmers there will be plenty of time for water-based fun such as water polo, splash sessions, pool games and diving practice

How do I book?

We use a secure third-party payment and booking system called WISEPAY to register children for the Camp. 

You will need to create an account to register your details before you are able to book a place for your child.

To book your child's place:

  1. Register with Wisepay using this link

  2. Select the camp/s that you wish to book

  3. When booking ensure you have completed a Child Details form

Once registered with Wisepay you will be emailed a password which we advise you to change to something more memorable for future use. You are able to do this via the 'My Wisepay Account' tab which also lists full booking and payment history.

Do you accept childcare vouchers?

At the moment we are not able to take payment for the camp via childcare vouchers. We soon anticipate being able to do so.

Can I make a booking on the day?

It is advisable to book in advance to guarantee your place.

Please call the Camp Manager on 07823 539257 if you would like to check availability on the day of a camp prior to arriving at Alleyn's (please call from 8.00 am onwards).

Provided we are not fully booked we will accept bookings on the day although payment must be made via the Wisepay system or via credit or debit card at the registration desk. Please note we are no longer able to accept cash at the registration desk.

What should my child bring?

Each child will need to bring a packed lunch and snacks for the day, as well as a refillable drinks bottle. Please download our PARENT INFORMATION which includes further details of the Camp including what your child should bring with them.

 

Where do I drop off / collect my child?

We will need to register your child when you drop them off. Registration and collection of children will take place in the SIXTH FORM CENTRE.  This includes early drop off and late collection when booking an extended day.

A map of the Alleyn's School site is provided in the link above and in our Parent Information. Please arrive via the Senior School Main Entrance on Townley Road. The Sixth Form Centre is building number 10 and is located near to the Senior School Quad. You are welcome to speak with our Commissionaire and Security Team located at the front of School in Townley Lodge if you need further directions.

Is the Holiday Camp Ofsted registered?

Providers of multi-sport activity camps do not have to register with Ofsted if they care for children aged five and over (we will have no under-5s) and offer no more than two types of activity from a prescribed list (we offer sport and arts and crafts).

Nevertheless, though not a requirement for a camp of our current scope, we have applied for Voluntary Registration with Ofsted.

Please be assured that all our staff have been fully DBS checked by the School and vetted to ensure that they hold suitable qualifications before starting work for us.

Our policies, procedures and insurance provision meet all necessary requirements and the welfare of the children in our care will always take priority.
