Autumn Camp: 28th Oct - 1st Nov
Our Camps are THE place for children in need of more adventure during the school holidays. Perfect for Parents wanting their child to have the best experience with lots of learning and self development opportunities.
Omega Activity Day Camps have 4 activities each day, meaning there really is something for everyone.
This October half term we are having an overnight Camp Out on Halloween!
Activity Day Camp
Parents, relax with piece of mind knowing that not only is your child safe and well for the school holidays but they're also creating memories, new friendships and learning valuable life skills under the expert supervision of our experienced and qualified team.
Even those who normally have trouble getting the kids motivated to put down the tech and step outside have been astonished by their child's achievements at Camp. Don't just take our word for it, have a look at what Parents/Guardians of Omega kids are saying about our Activity Camps.
Our sessions run on a 1:12 ratio to ensure plenty of individual support is available from the instructor. We are able to organise extra support for young people with additional needs, if this is something you require, give us a call.
All activities are weather dependent but Omega Camp is an Outdoor Activity Camp, so make sure you know what the kids need to bring and that they dress for the weather.
If you have any questions get in touch with the Team.

Sign-in is at Buzzards Valley main car park
Buzzards Valley is an award winning venue and a wonderful location for an outdoor camp. It boasts plentiful grounds, lakes and woodland meaning visiting children can really enjoy what nature has to offer.
A bit about Buzzards Valley:
Since 1962 the family business has been here on the Canwell Estate. Starting out with farming, they then moved on to growing vegetables.
The next step was opening a small florists which eventually expanded into a large wholesale business.
In 2001, the planting of 8000 vines started and a few years later a winery, shop and restaurant was built on the premises. The business has since grown to include a fishery.
In 2016, the production of gins started, along side our wines and Buzzards Valley continues to be a great success.
The story is far more detailed and a great way to hear more about it is to book onto one of their Vineyard tours!
