Hexham Holiday Club is a week long programme of fun, informative and action-packed faith based events and activities for children of all ages. It has been a part of Hexham Summer holidays since 1970 and is run by volunteers from Churches Together in Hexham in association with Scripture Union.
No, everyone is welcome.
In Hexham? We think not. You probably know half the 'team' already. We're in this for the long haul, so rather than an intense week of pressure (although it is for the 'team') it will be a fun week where children get to know each other, a little bit about the Bible and hopefully get a chance to find out how much God loves them.
All the 'team' are volunteers, most of whom come from Hexham churches. All 'team' members have been DBS cleared.
All activities during Holiday Club week are free of charge, although there are opportunities to give a donation.
For 'Storytime', we ask an adult to stay with any child 3 years and under. For all other age-group activities (School Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Years 3-4 & Years 5-7) that take place in the mornings, you may leave your child(ren) at the relevant venue from 10.30am. We also ask that you return to collect your child(ren) promptly at 12.30pm each morning. You will need to inform us if somebody else is coming to collect your child(ren), and also provide an emergency contact, preferably a mobile telephone number. In the evenings, for 'Nightshift' (13yrs+), we expect that many of the young people will be unaccompanied.
Every child attending Holiday Club has to be registered. This helps us in terms of health and safety, dietary needs etc. You can register in advance by downloading a registration form from the website. Registering your child(ren) in advance is our preferred option as it helps us plan and organise effectively, as well as help you avoid a possible delay on the first morning your child(ren) attends Holiday Club.
We do all we can to accomodate everybody. Please note on registration forms any special needs your child(ren) might have, or email us early with particular requests.
