Summer Holiday Guide for London!

So the summer term is nearly over – for some schools have been closed for a few days already. What are you planning for your summer holiday? Most importantly, we all know that life doesn’t stop when school does so how do you manage your work life juggle during this period?  So we have put together this summer holiday guide to give you some fun activities to enjoy!

For some, the thought of the summer is a much anticipated time of the year, filled with sunny days, paddling pools, museum trips, long walks and that smell of sunscreen and children mixed together can smell delicious. For others, it can feel quite overwhelming. The thought of having to organize 3 meals, and entertaining children while balancing work can be too much to chew.

Whichever camp you are in, we’ve got your back!

Camps

There are so many fun camps to explore with your child(ren) this summer. From active football styled camps such as Active Day Camps, to more creative camps to get their messy play hats on. There are also many STEM-themed camps popping up such as Mama codes who have several coding camps around London and they take children as young as 3! It’s never too early to get your child learning to code these days!

Also, did you know that RIBA have special summer camps for children? From den building to designing sky scrappers if you have a 6-year-old to an 18-year-old do check out their schedules!
