Extra fees may be incurred for additional adults or staff visiting mid-week. To aid with accessibility and inclusion for all children, additional free staff spaces may be available, at the discretion of the centre, for children requiring one-to-one support. Contact us if you require more information on this and additional charges.

Making a booking

We start taking bookings during January for the following academic year. This means we should usually be able to match your requirements. The January booking window ends on 31 January.

  • In February we will let you know the week you have been allocated
  • Enquiries made after this will be offered remaining slots
  • When applying at other times of the year, phone the centre on 01329 662244 first to discuss availability.

When choosing activities for a full week's programme you will be looking to choose 7 two hour sessions plus a smaller session such as Stubbington Fox for Friday.

Confirming your booking

Upon receipt of your booking enquiry, we will send you an official offer, if we are able to do so. You will then have 28 days to respond with your 'Confirmation of Booking' form on which you can enter the number of places you actually wish to book. Please note that you will be financially committed to the numbers you submit on this form and so we advise that you use the 28 day period to consult with your parents to 'firm up' your numbers.

If you need to increase your numbers on the confirmation form, please contact the centre first to ensure that we can accommodate. You will be asked to pay an initial, non-returnable deposit when you return your confirmation form.

10 weeks before the date of your visit will issue an invoice for 25% of the projected total cost.

See booking terms and conditions for further information.

Final payment

After your visit we will invoice you for the total number of places booked or the number of resident children, whichever is the greater
