I’ve used Kids Takeover over the past year for my son (who’s 8 now) during school holidays and he’s always enjoyed them. They’re suitable for all primary age children and we’ve used them since my son was in year 1. There are a variety of activities throughout the day and a choice of what to do so he can pick his favourite sports or activities and have a fun, active day. At February Half Term 2019 my Mumbler Assistant Andrea took her child to try them too. She has a 12 year old girl who went with a school friend, they did a days session at the St Mary’s Academy Hull camp. Here’s what she thought of them –
“I’ve just picked the girls up from Kids Takeover and they LOVED it, they didn’t stop talking about it all the way home. The coaches were really friendly, and funny. And they played football, dodgeball, benchball, and got to try out gymnastics. They even joined in with a football match of kids versus coaches. There was absolutely no opportunity for them to get bored, they were kept entertained for the full day!”
The next Kids Takeover Camps will be during the Easter Holidays. They have some changes to the camps for 2019 so here’s all about them and details about the 10% offer…….
Kids Takeover Camps – New Times and Changes for 2019
This year, we’re making some changes to the time, structure and pricing of our popular Kids Takeover Camps – extending the standard day and changing the format of the wraparound sessions to make them more convenient for working parents. We’re also updating the pricing structure to reflect the changes. The new changes are being introduced from February half term 2019, and will apply to all activity camps. Here’s what’s happening:
The New Timetable
We’re extending the main Kids Takeover Camp sessions by two hours. The new sessions will run from 9.30am – 4.30pm each day, instead of 10.30am – 3.30pm. In addition, the wraparound care timetable is changing. Instead of two separate sessions (8am – 10.30am and 3.30pm – 6pm) wraparound care will now be available as a single package, and will extend the day to 8am – 5.30pm.
Updated 2019 Pricing –
The pricing structure is also changing. To reflect the longer day, main sessions will now be £16 per day (up from £12). Wraparound care will be £8 per day (instead of £6 for each wraparound session). For a full day with wraparound care, the price of a day will remain the same, at £24 per day.
Why we’re changing –
The primary reason behind the change is to make the programme more flexible, for the benefit of working families. We’ve listened to your feedback, and understand that the previous timetable simply didn’t fit in to the average working day for many parents. The new extended timetable is designed so that fewer parents need to book wraparound care – providing more flexibility, and solving a common headache in the holidays. For those that do want an earlier drop off / later pick up, we’ve streamlined the wraparound care into a single session to make things simpler.
The second reason for extending the day is so that we’ve got extra time to run more activities with the kids. Those extra two hours open up a number of opportunities to extend the programme and the types of activity we can offer throughout the day.
Kids Takeover Camps for 2019
Apart from these changes, everything else will remain the same! We’ll still be keeping children entertained and safe during the school holidays at a fraction of the price of childcare – providing jam-packed, varied days to keep them active and busy whilst you’re at work.
