FizzBug provides exciting and creative opportunities for children to learn new skills and enjoy themselves whilst getting fitter! We create engaging sessions so that children have the ability to become part of a ‘Club’ and ‘Team’. It helps to build confidence, make new friends, and learn to work with others to achieve goals. Our fun packed days include a variety of sports, games, crafts, Forest School activities, performing arts and cookery.
3/4 days (0900-1500) and full days (0830-1730). The club is suitable for 3 years + but we ask that 3 year olds are used to being in a ‘club’ environment. Please call if you wish to discuss the suitability.

FizzBug Holiday Clubs are not only a way of providing childcare support to families when their schools can not, but they also support the work that teachers in those schools have done during the term-time.

The camps will consist of a combination of fun-focused sports, nutrition quizzes, recipe ideas, leadership tasks and creative games. We offer a range of non-skilled, fun and fully inclusive games including activities such as human noughts and crosses and the shuttlecock challenge, each testing co-ordination and team work. These fun challenges keep motivation high and all of the children receive certificates for their efforts, which helps to promote confidence and a sense of achievement. FizzBug provides exciting and creative opportunities for children to learn new skills and enjoy themselves whilst getting fitter! We create engaging sessions so that children have the ability to become part of a ‘Club’ and ‘Team’. It helps to build confidence, make new friends, and learn to work with others to achieve goals. Whether your child loves or loathes sport, they will be fans and willingly participate.

All children that take part in our FizzBug Holiday Clubs get fully involved and where we can, we involve parents and carers too. We help choose and design a programme that will improve their fitness and well-being and to assist them in making friends, developing confidence and leadership skills – and bonding with the rest of the group.

What our community says

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

We haven’t been to Fizzbug before and didn’t really know what to expect especially in the current climate. From the moment we arrived we were impressed and our girls were excited-and it didn’t disappoint! Our girls have been to several holiday clubs and this definitely a favourite and we will be coming back! Thank you 😊 Karen Standen

Our child really enjoyed his summer at fizzbugs. It was very well organised despite the new measures that needed to be implemented. Would not hesitate to use Fizzbug again. Christina Dodd
