Football Fun
Our super enthusiastic Leaders provide fantastic football training teaching to perform simple drills, striking the ball correctly, beating your opponent and developing the confidence to try something new. Weather dependant, FizzBug football fun will run every day. Our Leaders love football as much as your children do and are chosen to work at FizzBug because of their energy, boundless amounts of encouragement and ability to create great sportsmanship for all buddy players. We welcome players of all abilities at our club. You can drop off between 0830-0930 and pick up is from 1500 with the latest pick up time of 1730. If you need to pick up after 1500 but before 1730, you are welcome to do this. We will ask you your pick up time when you drop off in the morning.

HAPpy Activity Camps | Bookings for this summer’s HAPpy Camps open on Monday 20th June

How do I know if my child is eligible to attend a HAPpy Camp?
Children who are in school years Reception to Year 11, who attend a Hertfordshire school and are in receipt of benefits related free school meals are eligible to receive a code and attend HAPpy Camps.

My child is in Reception or KS1 and gets free school meals – does this count?
No, this is the Universal Infant Free School Meal offer that all children in these year groups receive – this type of free school meal does not make children eligible. You may be eligible if you meet any of the criteria outlined here. If you believe that you do meet the criteria, please apply for free school meals, as this could further support your child in school, and will ensure you receive your code.

How do I access my HAPpy Booking Code?
Schools will have access to your child’s HAPpy Booking Code from Wednesday 25th May, and should send it to you soon after this date. If you have not received your code, please contact your school office, or email haf@herts.ac.uk.

Are Ukrainian children/other refugee/asylum seeking children eligible to attend HAPpy Camps?
All Ukrainian/refugee/asylum seeking children will be eligible to attend HAppy Camps and can obtain a code from their school. If children have not been allocated a school place by the time bookings open on 20th June, please email haf@herts.ac.uk and we can help you with a referral code.

My child is Electively Home Educated (EHE) and we would meet the criteria; how can I obtain a code?
The EHE Team at Hertfordshire County Council have a list of families whom they believe to be eligible and will write to them from 7th March. If you do not receive an email, please contact haf@herts.ac.uk so that we can pass your details on.

Where are camps being run?
Camps will be run all over Hertfordshire – from Monday 20th June, you can use the filters in the activity finder to search by location, child’s age, disability and date.

I am on a low income, but not low enough for my children to receive free school meals – can I get a code?
Under certain circumstances, and where existing family support is in place, HAPpy Camps may have the opportunity to support vulnerable children from low income families. If you feel that you fit this criteria, the professional who is supporting your family will need to email haf@herts.ac.uk. This can be a Family Support Worker, SENCo, social worker, teacher etc.

What our community says

S and N had such a brilliant time last week. S was a bit hesitant to go as she had been home for several months, N was just going with the flo. When i picked them up on Wednesday they were both glowing. Nos first words were ‘mummy that was the best camp ever!”. S said she had a wonderful time to and wanted to come back the next day. They absolutely loved it. I hope to book some more (if you have availability). You and your team certainly do an amazing job. Thank you.

I just wanted to say the kids said the ‘club was epic today, even better than it normally is’. They loved the small groups and wearing t-shirts and want to come everyday! – Esther

Our children have always enjoyed Fizzbugs, but this summer with the tents and focus on outdoor play has been brilliant – thank you for making such a huge effort, our girls LOVED it! Matt Martel

I was very impressed in the way in which Kate and the team handled the holiday club during these unprecedented times. A real testament to how a community can pull together to help each other. Well done team Fizz bugs! Anisha Koshal

Thomas adored everyday at FizzBug’s, he didn’t tell me much after the day but was so happy and just so excited to return every other day. Really appreciated the convince of drop off when it was raining , you waited at gate so we didn’t have to unload all our children. (twins and a 2yr old) Siobhan Pollard

This club was a godsend and helped me get on with work knowing my son was having a great time and well looked after! Thank you! Carolyn McKay

I was so grateful that Fizzbug was running over the summer and we really appreciated all the hard work that had gone into the social distancing and bubbles. My daughters really loved Fizzbug and enjoyed the variety of activities and meeting new children. Samantha Sawyer

Fizzbugs put on an amazing set up this year under very challenging circumstances. They excelled themselves with the look and feel of the camp making it look like a mini festival. I rather fancied going myself! Thanks so much to all of you for making the summer months easier to work whilst keeping the children entertained and doing something different Vicky Ellis

Amazing organisational skills of the crew at Fizzbugs meant my son had a great time despite the current restrictions in place. It’s also great to see such efforts being made to use sustainable products. Melanie McWilliams

The camp meant very happy children and very happy parents. Great effort made by the team to make the camp happen, and it was excellent! Inna Banks
