Our Offsite activities

Something that sets us apart from other schemes is our totally inclusive trips.  We have our staples that we visit each year and are as popular as ever but also we spend a lot of time each year searching out new and hopefully special trips for the scheme.  Each of our age groups have some of their own trips that are specially suited to them.  We transport young people to and from the trips on our own fleet of buses which are strictly monitored for capacity and have seat belts for every person.

We have found that our Infants age group need structure to their day and a timetable is planned out for them for the whole week, whereas Mainstream have a free choice of activities both on and off site for them to choose and they can make it their Playscheme by doing the activities they and their friends want to do.  Teenz choose a tailored group before registering and follow a set of activities selected to follow that theme.  Ultimately even with the fixed programmes of Infants and Teenz we will always go out of our way to ensure children get the best out of Playscheme and where space permits changes are possible.
