Mum's guide to St. Neots

Summer

Hurray Summer is finally here and we're back up and running with full on summer fun.

To help you plan I've found some fantastic local summer camps and clubs for all age ranges and budgets. There are so many clubs and classes for your kids to try from motorsports, tennis, canoeing, climbing, crafts, dance, film and more. I've listed all the exciting info. here with more booking information found on their link page.

Plus I found a local plays scheme that can help eligible parents get 64 hours of free clubs and classes, (don't panic if you aren't eligible it is worth checking these places out as there are some surprising bargains to be had too). So everyone's child can have a fun action packed kids adventure!

GRAFHAM WATER DISCOVERY CLUB AGES 8-16

Yes there are clubs for teens too! 

This is a fantastic experience for any child who wants to try new activities or develop existing skills, meet new friends of a similar age and most importantly have fun! Young people will learn skills in water activities such as sailing, canoeing and windsurfing and also land based skills such as archery, climbing and high ropes.

Pack lunch and drink will be required for this 9-5 club that has a half hour grace drop off and pick up time so you’ll have 30 minutes to get to and from work.

Club runs from 25th July to 26th August 5 days a week.

At the moment of this article there are also plenty of spaces too.

DANCE & PERFORMANCE

Who would believe all these summer clubs are in St. Neots!

FROZEN 2 MUSICAL WORKSHOP BY BEES DANCE ACADEMY AGES 3-16

Bee is busy again (haha) with a spectacular summer workshop inspired by a beloved Disney film.

Main day 9.30- 3.30 but she does offer extra hours for you busy 8:30-5:30 parents

This workshop is only running the last week in July but its hugely popular (please Bee add more we love you!)

I am guessing that packed lunch will be required as Bee has been very generous with costs.

THEATRE & MUSIC WORKSHOPS BY PEPPERCORNS AGES 8-16

THEATRE WORKSHOPS 2 WEEKS TO CHOOSE

Come along to our theatre workshops to learn all aspects of theatre; dancing, drama, singing & technical.

The week session will run 9.00am till 4.00pm Monday to Friday.

Please bring a packed lunch each day. 

Wednesday is our "treat" day where food is bought in from elsewhere - typically KFC. 2nd-6th August and 23rd to 27th August

MUSIC WORKSHOPS 1 DAY

Come along to our 1 day music workshop to improve your instrument playing skills, whether it be drums, guitar, keyboard or more, and show it off in a recital at the end of the day. These workshops are the perfect chance for potential new members to find out how we run our music tuition before joining up full time.

There will be two daily sessions and will run from 9.00am till 4.00pm with a recital/performance of the days' work at 4.15pm to 5.00pm.

Choose from Tuesday 9th & Friday 12th August


STAGEWORKS 8- 14

This year’s show will be Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Eccentric inventor, Caractacus Potts, sets about restoring an old race car with the help of his children Jeremy and Jemima. They soon discover the car is magic, and has the ability to float and take flight. When the evil Baron Bomburst desires the magic car for himself, the family joins forces with Truly Scrumptious and Grandpa Potts to outwit the dastardly Baron and Baroness and their villainous henchman, the Child Catcher.

The chosen week will run 9am-5pm (there is the 30 minute optional extra time for drop off and pickup)

Children’s parts are chosen on the first day (they can audition if they like but not necessary), the kids get a free t-shirt for taking part and there is an end of week performance.
