Holiday Camps

Welcome to Team Durham Holiday Camps! 

Holiday Camps are fun-filled, active school holiday schemes where young people can spend their day being active, learning new skills and making new friends while parents and carers are at work. 

When do Holiday Camps run?

Team Durham Holiday camps run every February half term, Easter holidays, Summer holidays and October half term (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays). The camp dates are based on the Durham County Council's school term dates.

Our next camps are running during the Summer holidays from Monday July 25 to Friday September 2 2022 (excluding weekends and bank holidays).

What ages can go to Holiday Camps?

We have camps available for children as young as 5 years old up to 16 years old. 

We run  our mini-sport camps (ages 5-7) and multi-sport camps (ages 8-12) throughout the whole of the 6 week Summer holidays.

During specific weeks in the summer, we run adventure camps (ages 12-16) and a number of sport-specific camps

COVID-19 Guidance

We are still taking precautions to ensure a safe and effective programme of events. This will include ensuring children wash their hands thoroughly, using our outdoor space where possible and cleaning equipment regularly. We will continue to follow both University and Government guidelines throughout.

For the safety of all staff, volunteers and children please do not send your child to camp if they are ill, exhibiting symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19. 

The Government recommends following NHS advice if you have Covid symptoms or test positive.

The NHS says if you test positive you should try to stay home and avoid other people for five days, starting from the day after you did the test, and avoid meeting people who are at higher risk from Covid-19 for 10 days.

If a person aged 18 or under tests positive they should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for three days, as children and young adults tend to be infectious for a shorter time than adults.

The advice for people who feel unwell but have not tested positive is to stay at home and avoid meeting others until they feel better.
