Multi Activity

Our multi activity sessions for 8-11 year olds boast lots of outdoor, action-packed fun to make the most of the summer holidays. Designed to be high energy and big impact, campers will no doubt have the best time at Varsity Camp this summer.

Let’s go!

  • Sports 
  • Showtime!
  • Art and Design
  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths)

Campers can choose one club for the duration of their stay, giving them the opportunity to focus on an activity that they really love!

 

Follow your passion!

Evening Events

One of the main advantages of a residential camp is the opportunity to run an exciting evening events programme and here at Varsity we go the extra mile to deliver that. At the end of each day, the whole camp comes together to take part in a standout event where campers can have fun, be creative, inspired, energised, and socialise with their new friends. Our previous events programmes have included events such as: Silly Olympics, Capture the Flag, Water-based Challenges and Sculpture Challenges. All of our events are tailored to the audience and delivered by a team of experienced activity leaders.

 

All together fun!

Friday Camp Carnival

At the end of a fun-filled week all campers and staff unite for the Camp Carnival, a vibrant and action-packed celebration in the sunshine! Our legendary Carnivals are the perfect way to end the week with team games, challenges, staff competitions, awards and plenty of good-bye surprises!
