Age Groups and Activities

Mini Minors is for children aged 3 to 6. There are two age groups: 3-4’s and 5-6’s, each of which is split further by both age and any pre camp friend requests.

XUK is for children aged 7 to 13. The timetable and activities included are tailored for this age group.

3 – 4's (Pre-Reception)

We have great activities for this age-group at Mini Minors. We aim for a good balance of indoor and outdoor, art and sport. We understand that many of this age group may be attending a camp for the first time (and may not have been to nursery before) and we adapt our approach to make these children and parents as comfortable and settled as possible.

Here are some of the fantastic activities that could be on offer to our 3-4's:

  • Zumba
  • Salt dough
  • Fencing
  • Story telling
  • Treasure hunts
  • Role play
  • Potato printing
  • Teddy Bears Picnic
  • Badge making
  • Football

Have a look at our sample timetable. All activities subject to change/cancellation and vary every week.

I just wanted to also let you know that my son was really nervous about camp and after the first day declared it the best day ever! He didn't want to leave to go on holiday...

We'll be seeing you next year, thanks again!
