Northumberland Holiday Provision
School holidays can be tough, long, and expensive for many families and we are pleased to say we have a fantastic free programme of activities being delivered right across the County for families and young people in Northumberland.
The holiday provision takes place during Easter, Summer and Winter school holidays.
If you have a child aged between 5 and 18, there are many holiday day camps you can access where there is great quality provision of activities including sport, art, music and more. All day camps offer a hot lunch too so what’s not to love? These are delivered by our fantastic delivery partners and are free to attend!
As well as the holiday camps, we have a range of activities and trips out for families, including, trekking with Alpaca’s, Deer Safari, Northumberland Zoo, Woodhorn Colliery and also passes for local leisure centres.
On all the offers, you will be able to pick up some lunch whether it be via a place where you visit or a café nearby.
