We’ve barely said goodbye to the long Christmas break and now we’re gearing up for Easter!  With between two and four weeks to fill, many of us parents look to holiday camps to get us through the break unscathed and so we’ve brought you our top local listings.

Camp details are correct at time of going to press (March 2019), but please check with the individual organisations before booking.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that some camps offer sibling discounts, weekly / daily booking options and / or a QPM’s discount.

Happy Easter break you all!
