Elysian Free Play Summer camps!

 4-7 year olds


Keeping children occupied and happy during the holidays is tough. Here at Elysian we can offer fun and excitement with activities and staff that can entertain them. That’s why summer activities at Elysian differ to any other holiday activity scheme. Being on a farm we have lots of animals that will need looking after including feeding and cuddles. All of the sessions are animal orientated and are planned to take place outside.

We have a fantastic programme with a wide range of activities that can truly claim to offer something for every child such as animal-based activities, nature, arts and crafts.

These activities have been chosen to encourage team building and help improve confidence and self-esteem. If you want to enjoy the great outdoors experience, then Elysian camp is for you!!

We have loved planning these and we are very confident every person that comes to any of our camps will love it!

These camps focus on increasing confidence whilst having fun and learning new skills.

Suitable for those who:

  • Love animals
  • Love being outside
  • Want to meet new friends
  • Want to learn more about animal care
  • Want to have fun with different activities on the farm and with the animals!

The camps are centred around different fun learning and play activities, and each day has a different activity and set of activities. Children and young people are always given slots of choice and the activities are inclusive and varied.

During the free play camps there are 3-4 ongoing activities that the children choose to engage with freely, including moving in between the activities. This is a low demand model to allow the children to choose their own activities throughout the session.

Every session has a varied activity programme suitable for that age group/level of need, which may include:

  • Pony Play – walk or decorate a pony with various props
  • Handle the snake
  • Small animal cuddles
  • Nature trail
  • Art&Crafts
  • Farm games and activities
  • Brush Goats
  • Farm walk

The programmes are tailored to the groups ages, abilities and needs. The groups are lead by staff with and expertise in working therapeutically with children, young people, with a range of needs. The camps overall aim is to increase confidence through appropriately challenging yet enjoyable activities. Children and young people wishing to take part in this camp, can attend with an accompanying adult to support them in a group environment.

Facilitated by fully vetted staff with enhanced DBSs.

Please do not bring any animals on site, or food and drink (due to health and safety regulations).

When you arrive at Elysian, you will see a car park. Park inside the car park, and the staff at Elysian will meet you at the gate at the event start time. They will then take you to the hand wash to wash your hands before the sessions starts, which is the same place the sessions ends. Please note when booking your session that we may need to cancel the session if attendance is going to be low.

Please dress for the farm where it can get quite muddy. Make sure you have the following with you: waterproofs, wellie boots or walking boots and a sunhat as you never know what the British weather is going to do!
