Holiday Camps

Offering unique experiences through inspirational teaching & a wide range of activities.

Why Rising Stars Holiday Camps?

Our OFSTED registered holiday camps offer children a safe and inspiring environment to learn, discover and have fun with their friends. We offer a flexible timetable where children can choose their activities, boosting their confidence and self-esteem as they shape and control their own day.

Since the pandemic, children’s holiday camps have gained an even greater importance for the development of children as they provide social reconnection with peers and help them rebuild social skills and friendships. With children having increased screen time during the pandemic, our holiday camps encourage outdoor play, sports and adventures, promoting physical health and combating sedentary habits. This not only has a positive impact on children’s mental health, but will also help them build resilience as they adapt to changing situations. Just as important is the mental health of parents, and our holiday camps can provide a much-needed break for parents while knowing their children are in a supportive and secure environment.

Our venues have fantastic facilities that allows us to offer children an incredibly diverse activity programme, making our camp suitable for all children. All our camps are rounded off with a presentation on the final day of the week which includes a weekly camp movie, and prizes for all the children who have attended.

Fred loves rising stars, the team there make everything so enjoyable for the kids with such an array of activities to suit all. My son has been going to the camps as well as the football club since he was 4 and 2 years later he doesn’t want to go anywhere else.

Rose

My son had an amazing time at the camp this October half term. His first time ever at a camp and he happily walked in with the friendly staff and wanted to go back every day. I can’t wait to send him back at Christmas as he really enjoyed all of the activities and made lots of friends

Annonymous

Rising stars generously supported the Ukrainian community by offering a number of discounted places at camp. This enabled mothers to continue to work, safe in the knowledge that their children were safe and well cared for. Feedback from the children was extremely positive. Thank you to Eliot and all at Riding Stars for facilitating this on behalf of the Hampstead Garden Suburb Synagogue community.

Julia Alberga

My kids loved the camp and cannot wait to go back next year! See you in 2024!
