Cheltenham Summer Holiday Club 2024

July 22 @ 9:00 am - August 30 @ 4:00 pm

☀️☀️☀️ BRING ON THE SUMMER BREAK! ☀️☀️☀️

We’re excited to announce that Fun Science Cheltenham is returning to host six more action-packed activity days during summer of 2024!

Each day will be suitable for children aged 4-11, run by highly experienced Fun Scientists Diatom Dave and Galaxy Gemma, who will inspire your kids’ curiosity through interactive activities designed to educate and entertain.

We’ve scheduled three days in July at Cleeve School (between Cheltenham and Tewkesbury), and three in August at Bournside School (between Cheltenham and Gloucester), bookending the long summer break and giving you some well-earned respite.

Days will run from 10am to 3pm, with the option to add one hour of stay-and-play time at each end (£5 per hour). Each day costs £30 per child, but if you buy five then you get one half price – a saving of £15!

Fun Science specializes in high-quality childcare during school holidays, as well as running popular after-school clubs during the term. We have dozens of five-star ratings from customers and places are likely to be snapped up fast!

🧭 WHERE (JUL)? Cleeve School, Bishops Cleeve
🧭 WHERE (AUG)? Bournside School, Cheltenham
⏰ WHEN? 1000–1500 (0900–1600 optional)
💰 PRICE? £30.00 child/day (£165.00 six days)

WED 28 AUG – SLIME AND POLYMERS 🧫 This day is all about the science of making. Children will make glowing slime, fluffy slime and smelly slime! Plus, we will also be experimenting with polymers and making our own plastic creations with real hand mouldable plastic.

THU 29 AUG – CREEPY CRITTERS 🧠 Expect some gruesome truths about the way the human body works, blood, bogies, insects and more. Human and animal bodies are very interesting, but a bit gory too!

FRI 30 AUG – SCIENTIFIC “SPELLS” ✨ Science sometimes looks like sorcery, so join us to cast some “scientific spells”. We will use science to make things disappear and reappear, explode, change colour and more!

🚨 Stay-and-play will be available each morning (0900-1000) and afternoon (1500-1600), for an additional cost of just £4.00 per child per hour.
