summer camp 300x300

We hate to say it, but the long school Summer Holidays are fast approaching – eek!  And if like us, just the thought of finding fun and stimulating activities to entertain the kids for 6+ weeks makes you break out into a cold sweat, panic no more!

With the aim of making our fellow local parents’ lives easier, we have compiled a comprehensive guide to Summer Camps within a three mile radius of Queen’s Park and Kensal Rise.  Camp activities include Football, Dance, Coding, Skateboarding, Tennis and Art to name just a few – and include camps suitable for 3 year olds, all the way up to kids aged seventeen!

What’s more, there are lots of fabulous discounts available to Queen’s Park Mums – just remember to quote the correct code when booking.

As always, if you think there is something that we have missed, please drop us a line at anna@queensparkmums.com and we will do our best to add it in.
