Summer 2018 activities

Our 2018 summer holiday sessions are aimed at school-aged children and will be running Monday-Friday from 23rd July until 31 August. We will be closed on Monday 27th August for the bank holiday.

Our theme for play sessions during the summer holidays is Seaside, Pirates, Mermaids and Travel. As part of this we will be making a display and focusing on the following:
Week 1  Handprint mermaids and ice cream cones
Week 2  Design your pirate ship flag
Week 3  Mermaids and mermen
Week 4  Sand bottles and messages in a bottle
Week 5  Treasure boxes and shell frames
Week 6  Children’s choice (and Pirate’s Picnic, weather permitting)

Some of the regular activities we have planned include den building, baking, outdoor fires and a water slide (weather permitting). Our adventure playground and city farm will also be open daily.

And we are also holding more of our popular Eco Sessions which include activities such as natural crafts, shelter building, charcoal making, bug hunts, pond dipping and volcano building. Eco sessions run on the following dates between 9.30-12 noon and cost £3 per session if registered with New Ark, or £5 as a one off.
