My school aged charge told me just this week there’s only 4 weeks of school left until the Summer holidays. With this is mind we thought it was about time to tell you about Summer Camps available.
Is the thought of the summer holidays filling you with dread? Trying to keep little (and big ones) entertained for weeks on end. It can be difficult to think of new activities and places to go, here at pocketnannies we’ll hopefully be able to provide you with lots of fun ideas for summer fun. 🙂
Here we have compiled a list of ‘Summer Holiday Camps’ and activities that are going on in London – because sometimes children just need some routine, a little space of their own and tonnes of fun. Perhaps you have to work during the holidays, or your nanny / child minder is away? Click on the title of each to take you to their website to find out more. Now is the time to be thinking about Summer holiday camps and booking – some companies even offer an ‘early bird’ discount.

First Hand Experiences sounds like a fun set of holiday camps which we discovered in our local Families magazine. These camps are for children aged 4-16 . The day camps offer adventures to celebrate the natural world. There’s exploring the outdoors, music, theatre, and the food offerings sound great! There are 3 locations across London. Children can also stay away.
