Best Summer Holiday Camps in West London
Tue 16 July 2019
The summer holidays are nearly upon us and if you live in West London, you might be wondering what you can do to keep your kids entertained in the six weeks that they are about to have off school.
In which case, help is at hand. Here’s a list of some of the best summer holiday camps available in West London.
Smart Raspberry Cookery School
Smart Raspberry Cookery School run several camps across West London with the aim of teaching children the importance of being able to cook for themselves and what goes into a healthy, nutritious meal.
The classes are fun and friendly and open to all ages, ranging from pre-school children to those about to go off to university – so you could even consider signing up any teenagers so they can spend the summer learning a massively important life-skill before they leave home!
Smart Raspberry’s teachers are passionate about cooking and love good food. The aim is to pass that onto younger generations, with the added bonus that your kids will be bringing home plenty of delicious food for you each day.
Led by professional actors, Drama Queen’s holiday camps focus on improving and developing a child’s imagination, creativity and social skills through acting.
The weekly courses take place on a Tuesday, Wednesday and a Thursday and each one features a different theme, ranging from a simple musical performance to writing and directing a movie-style production.
On the final day of the camp, the group then perform their work to parents and other guests, giving them a taste of what it is like to be a big Hollywood star or to perform on an iconic West End stage.
Hola! If you are keen to help your children develop their language skills, then Spanish Amigos’ holiday camps can help them to do so in a fun and engaging environment.
Using games, music, acting, crafts and toys and competitions, children will begin to learn how to speak to Spanish. Not only that, but they’ll also be introduced to the culture of the country and Latin America in general through its traditions and history.
That makes Spanish Amigos much more than a linguistics school - after all, you can only begin to understand a language if you understand where it comes from.
Mother Nature Science
Mother Nature Science camps have developed quite a reputation for themselves over the past 10 years or so, with students flying into London to take part from as far away as the United States, China and Japan!
It isn’t hard to see why. Their summer holiday courses feature both classroom based fun and outdoor activities which include wow-factor chemistry demonstrations and take-home biology experiments, so that the learning never stops.
The whole point in a Mother Nature class though is to have fun. With hands-on practical teaching, children don’t even realise that they’re learning about science – but they and you will notice the difference when they return to school as a budding Albert Einstein.
We Make Footballers
If you’ve got a football mad kid, then what better way for them to spend the summer holidays than by playing the sport they love? We Make Footballers offer the opportunity to do that under the watchful eye of FA qualified coaches and in a fun and safe environment.
The camps cater for children of all abilities aged between four and 12. For players who are just starting out and who want to learn the basics, a We Make Footballers camp is a brilliant way to introduce them to the sport.
Meanwhile, those who are more experienced will find their abilities improving with coaches offering personalised feedback and aiding their development throughout the week. We Make Footballers even have links with professional clubs, so if your child has the talent to potentially make it as a professional then it’s a great way to get spotted and possibly recommended for a trial at an academy!
With four hours of football involved each day ranging from practices, challenges or games designed to improve player’s skills to matches and tournaments. The overriding purpose though is for kids to have a good time.
We hope that you have found this list of best summer holiday camps in West London helpful and that your child can look forward to a break full of development, learning new skills, making friends and fun!
