About Allsports Kids Holiday Camp

Allsports Kids runs small, friendly, sports and craft camps in the forest and at St John's C of E school, Buckhurst Hill, every half term, Easter, Christmas and Summer for all children in
reception - year 7.
Every camp is different and we offer a range of different activities for our children to take part in, Sports, Crafts and Forest Activities.
At our camps, we start every day with a sports session to wake them up.
During the week the children will get a chance to do a range of sports including athletics, basketball, badminton, benchball, cricket, dodgeball, football, golf, hockey, lacrosse, netball, rounders, rugby, tennis and volleyball.
We also play lots of inclusive games, like scooters, capture the flag, parachute games and their favourite - Wave, an energetic version of hide and seek.
Over the years the children have made up their own versions of some of these games too.
The highlight of our summer camps is the water games afternoon and we finish with a water slide. They get very wet!
ARTS AND CRAFTS
We base our arts activities on the natural world around us and the current season, using as many natural materials as we can. Please visit our gallery to see some of their finished articles.
We love the forest and plan many activities during our camps as often as possible. We do lots of sport and art whilst in the forest or collect objects to use in art when we return.
Every camp is different- we vary the activities according to the seasons.
We love taking the children into the forest for sports and craft activities such as den building.
We draw lots of inspiration from the artist Andy Goldsworthy for our forest art sessions. We are also allowed to use the school field for camp fire cooking. You need to try our Woof'ems! Delicious.
In most of the sporting activities the children are grouped according to age, but we do some vertical grouping and some games like parachute with the whole group.
Sometimes we group the boys and girls separately.
There have been lots of studies done which show that girls perform better at sport when taught away from boys.
We are able to be flexible with our schedules as we have a small number of children attending compared to other camps in the area.
If it rains we can change the timetable around or add in extra craft sessions, bingo, pictionary or charades.
We always have out some board games which the children can freely use during the day.
