Superkids 5-6 Years

Through the years

Over the years we have developed very popular programmes for our 5 and 6 year old campers, with a wide range of activities for both indoors and outdoors – outlined below.

A Familiar Spot

Each group of 5 & 6 year olds will have their own base in Key Stage 1 where they will feel relaxed and safe. A fully qualified and experienced primary school teacher is in charge of each group, supported by caring and sensitive staff who are chosen for their skills, ability, and experience in dealing with the needs of younger children. We have a 1:8 ratio for the Superkids, and many staff return year after year to implement these programmes.

Swimtime

The Superkids will have a short swimming session each day supervised by a qualified swimming instructor. All Superkids staff will be present to supervise and encourage, and at least one member of staff will join the children in the shallow end to ensure safety and help to develop confidence. The Superkids will use this pool time in small groups which are assessed by the instructor who will then teach and encourage.
