We’re the UK’s leading activity, sports camps, creating incredible school holiday experiences to get children aged 5-17 active, having fun and learning together.
Our formula is simple. We find the best coaches oozing with a unique energy and enthusiasm which we like to call ‘The Kings Factor’, create amazing programmes based on our decades of experience and deliver all of this at exceptional venues.
Unlike most holiday camp providers, we’re a not-for-profit. This means, each time you make a booking we’re able to use our expertise to transform the lives of children through sport around the world.
The safety and security of your child means everything to us. From signing in and out, to safeguarding and training, our policies combined with our wealth of experience means your children are in safe hands from the moment they step onto our summer camps.
We’re Ofsted registered
Ofsted sets the standard for organisations responsible for children in England and we work closely with them to ensure our sports camps follow best practices. All of our people go through a rigorous interview, reference and clearance process, including enhanced disclosure checks, so we know they are safe to work on camp. We also have a compulsory training programme covering safeguarding, supervision and First Aid, giving coaches the tools they need to deliver a safe summer camp experience.
The NSPCC exists to protect children. Leading the way in child protection and safeguarding, we have worked closely with them to outline stringent recruitment policies and to create a Safeguarding course for our Red Tops, which must be complete by all coaches before the start of camp. Our head office team have also received safeguarding training from the NSPCC, with our Designated Safeguarding Officers receiving enhanced training.
Our programmes get the best out of every child
We have four types of programmes which run throughout the year; Multi-Active, Specialist, Teen and Rookie Academy.
Each programme is packed with fun and designed to increase confidence, giving children the chance to learn new skills.
Multi-Active is our main programme. Children get to try over 30 sports and activities, from group games and individual pursuits. We always group children with others of a similar age, so they can flourish and make new friends.
Our specialist programmes are perfect for children with a particular passion for football or cricket. Running at select venues, over five mornings children can take part in sport-specific sessions, with the option to join Multi-Active in the afternoon.
From ages 12-17 children join our Teen Programmes. Teen Active builds on our Multi-Active programme and is designed to be more challenging and competitive for older children. At age 15, teens can opt to join the Rookie Academy where they can learn to plan and deliver sessions alongside Red Tops. Rookies are recognised and respected by universities and employers making it ideal for teens considering a career in sport.
As Ofsted’s guidelines say, child safety depends on a good child-to-staff ratio. That’s why we follow Ofsted’s recommendations for every camp we run:
