Superweeks – Adventure Camps for kids2019-01-25T11:35:02+00:00

Our Superweek holidays are jam-packed week long adventures for children just like you. We’ve been running them for over 50 years, and our staff are bursting full of activities and imaginative games which means that each Superweek is always totally unique. So many children tell us their Superweek is the best week of their year; making new friends, playing new games, exploring, building dens in the woods, having stories around the campfire, and so much more. Your adventure is waiting for you …  FIND OUT MORE

What’s so super about Superweeks?

Children’s FAQs:

All our centres have dorms. They vary in size from centre to centre but will probably have between 4 and 8 beds in. Most have bunk beds, some are lots of single beds (a bit like in Hogwarts). There will be somewhere for you to put away your things.

Your dormitory is a very special room on Superweek as it belongs to just you and your group. Lots of exciting things will happen in there. You can even decorate it to make it even more special – previous groups have turned dorms into sweet factories, jungles, alien planets and even the inside of a computer!

Your Monitor will be looking after you for the entire Superweek. A Monitor is like a big brother or a big sister, but with no rubbish bits. You will be put in a group with 6 or 7 other people your age, plus your Monitor.

It’s your Monitor’s job to always be there and to make sure that you have the Super-est Superweek you possibly can (they’ll be so full of ideas and fun things for you to do that they’ll have blue bubbles coming out of their ears). They’ll sit at your table for meals, sleep in your dorm, make sure you brush your teeth every day, and become one of the best friends you’ll make on your Superweek.

We know that being away from home can be a bit scary, but we absolutely promise that we’ll do everything we can to make sure the only reason you have to miss home is because you’ll want to tell them all about your Superweek.

Its always nice during the Superweek for you and your group to walk into town to buy a postcard to send home with all your news.

Every holiday has a Matron – this person is usually a nurse and it’s her job to look after everybody’s medicine, do First Aid and generally make sure everyone is feeling OK (she’s a bit like the Superweek mum!). You’ll always know where to find her if you need her and she’ll always be happy to see you – even if you just need a hug.
You’ll have your very own group, and each group has their own Monitor who’s with you all the time; they eat with you, sleep in your dorm and do all the activities with you. Groups are usually either all boys or all girls so you can all be in the same dorm together too. Your group will spend lots of time with other groups and the whole holiday spends lots of time together.

Most people come on Superweek by themselves. We’re very good at making sure everyone gets to know each other quickly. No one ever gets left out on a Superweek.

If you do want to come with a friend, then we will do our very, very best to put you in the same group.

What’s really brilliant about Superweeks is that you’re usually only ever a couple of hours away from eating! As well as lovely breakfasts, lunches and dinners, our catering team make sure you have morning breaks and afternoon snacks to keep you going through all the games. It’s all really brilliant, home-cooked food like you’ll be used to from home. There’s always a good pudding after meals, and usually cake (or maybe even an ice cream) in the afternoon.

Sometimes in the evening we even get hot chocolate and biscuits in front of the fire!
