About us

Activate Camps is the leading provider of active and inspiring childcare across the UK.

Over the last 10 years we’ve had over 100,000 children attend our courses!

Active and Inspiring!

Our head office team is made up of people with a strong background in teaching, grassroots development, childcare, and professional sport and coaching. You’re likely to bump into one of us on Ben Nevis or Snowdon, cycling in the Peak District or running a marathon. We all share the same belief though, that all children should have the opportunity to develop through a variety of exciting activities that engage both brain and body, inspiring them to lead a happy and healthy lifestyle.

We use sport as the catalyst on many of our camps and work with current and former athletes who want to inspire the next generation. You’ll find all the athletes we work with visiting courses over the school holidays, giving children a unique opportunity to meet sporting role models and learn from them first hand.​

Each year we operate over 250 course weeks across the UK, delivering multi activity camps, together with specific sports driven courses including the Andrew Flintoff Cricket Academy and Netball Fever.

We provide a unique childcare service for parents, combining sport, activities, school study support, self exploration and peer interaction. We are more than just sport; we are “Active and Inspiring Childcare”. Our groups are always age-appropriate and offer lots of choice for both boys and girls to extend their skills and release their potential.

Why choose Activate Camps?

Qualified instructors who have a wealth of experience in childcare and sports provision write all of our programmes. The care of every child is at the heart of everything we do and we are the only holiday camp childcare provider to have our staff training accredited by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).

We are Ofsted registered, which offers parents peace of mind on the welfare and quality of our courses.

Carbon footprint

We don't want to increase our carbon footprint and therefore purposely don't offer motor sports.

Staff travel/accommodation

To reduce travel and unnecessary petrol consumption we offer accommodation to our staff travelling over a certain distance each day.

Small things that count too...

Cups to serve drinks during breaks are washed and reused.
We choose fruit and biscuits that reduce the amount of food packaging and waste.
