February Half-Term Holiday Club Programme 2018
The February Half-Term Holiday Club runs for 5 days and is packed full of great activities, plenty of outdoor fun and offers parents and carers a brilliant programme of variety and first class child care throughout the February Half-Term Holidays.
Each day we run a completely different programme. No one day is the same! Typical of the time of year our focus is on Early Spring themes utilising the natural resources in the woods and open land at this time of year. We offer crafts, challenges, games and of course our live animals.
Please Note due to Ofsted restrictions for our Poets Corner site presently, we can not offer places to Young Explorers - 6 to 7 year olds at the moment.
♦ Live Animals - We have over 50 species of Live Animals - Get to meet many of them on selected days
♦ Bushcraft - We have many bushcraft activities that are themed to provide children with challenges to learn new skills
♦ Forest School - Using traditional Forest School techniques to interact and learn in the natural outdoor environment
♦ Low Ropes - Providing physical and play activities with themed challenges on our professional low ropes equipment

Unfortunately due to Ofsted Restrictions on our chosen venues, we can not offer places on the February Club this year for Young Explorers (Ages 6 to 7 Years) at our Poets Corner venue. We will be working towards getting Ofsted registered for this brand new venue for later in 2018.
The Rangers will be involved in five days of conservation based activities at our Education and Healthcare Centre, Poets Corner, Keats Road, Welling, with the last day ending with some treats and festive carols around a roaring fire.
Our February programme is so jam-packed with activities it would take forever to list them all, but for the highlights check out the listings below. Don't forget, you can book any one day, multiple days in any combination.
