Children that attend the camps can look forward to activities such as laser tag, adventure golf and den building. These in addition to art and creative activities such as modelling, photography, drama, design and Lego building. 

Filled with history and scenic surroundings, Rufford Abbey provides a perfect setting for children to have fun and express themselves during the camps. With Koala Klubs key initiatives of safety, encouraging socially positive behaviour and creating interactive experiences, the two go hand in hand for creating a summer of fun. An official start date for the camps is 29 July.

The fact we are able to offer a location with so many developmental opportunities for children during the summer holidays is a great and unique selling point for the park.
