Brabyns Preparatory School

Our Holiday Activity Camp provision enables us to offer all year round care.  

The Activity Camp offers action-packed, fun-filled days for children aged 2 to 11 during the School holidays.  

Activity Camp is run by members of the School's staff team. The activity streams are overseen by our Headteacher, Mr Sanders, and are supported by members of Nursery and other School staff.  To gain an insight into Activity Camp watch the short video below.

Opening Hours

Activity Camp is open daily from 8am until 5:30pm.  Your child does not need to stay for the whole time, but for those needing the extended day it is available. The “Activity Day” will run from 9:15am – 3:15pm. Children should be in by 9:15am to ensure they are ready for any trip departures, and may not be back from trips until up to 4:30pm (we’ll let you know if it is going to be later than this).

Children may attend for the full week or daily. Half days may be available upon request, depending upon outings and availability - however these may not be available for ‘on-the-day’ bookings. Those attending for the full week will benefit from the wide range of activities that are planned. We aim to have ‘Trip Tuesdays’, where the children go off-site on different trips each week of Camp. This may require the children to be in Camp by a set time and mean they return later. We have also introduced ‘Theme Thursdays’ which are days led by a member of our teaching staff on a variety of different themes – very exciting!  

Camp Staff

Camps are led by various staff over the course of the holidays, with other staff assisting as required. Details about the camp for each week will be up on the noticeboard. Please check you have the camp contact details should you need these for any matter.

Camp Timetable

The Camp Timetable is arranged and finalised during the half term before each camp starts. Timetables may be subject to changes further to weather, availability, child numbers.

In addition to trip / theme days and set activities, ‘free play’ and other activities are also available – including the time at the start and end of the day.  

 Please note:

Food & Drink

Children should bring their own packed lunch and snack. Water is always available.  Please be aware that lunch boxes are stored in the cloakroom so cool packs may be advisable. Please note: children must not bring nuts (in any form) in to School at any time due to the effect this may have on children with allergies. Children should not share their snack/lunch with others.  

Clothing & Equipment

Please equip your child with a rucksack, sun cream, cap and waterproof coat for the days we have outings planned.  Wellies may also be required on wet days, and a towel & change of clothing will be needed for water fights.  Children are not permitted to bring any electrical equipment to Activity Camp, such as iPods, Nintendo DS, mobile phones, etc.


Please remember that normal School parking rules apply and vehicles may not be left on the drive unattended at anytime. This is a health and safety risk and is against the School’s policy.
