Summer family activities for every adventurer

Looking for fun family activities to do this summer? Whether you're after outdoor games to entertain the kids, a relaxing yoga class in a peaceful garden or a nature challenge to get your heart racing, we've got plenty for you to enjoy at the places in our care. Just get set, go!

Summer is here, and there are lots of activities for you to try as a whole family at the places we care for. It's a great time to get curious about nature – feel the tickly grass underfoot, smell the flowery scents and listen to the buzzing and twittering of wildlife all around you.

Throughout the 2021 school summer holidays, grab a 'Get set, go' card to create your own adventure as you explore the activities at a place near you. You can make a splash, add some bounce, follow the path, go barefoot or take a moment to notice nature.

From classic sports games and arts and crafts, to getting stuck into sensory activities, enjoy simple summer pleasures with your loved ones.
