Activate: Holiday Activities and Food

Activate: Holiday Activities and Food programme is a government funded holiday camp offering free childcare with a free meal for any child who is eligible for benefit related free school meals.

Who is the programme for?

This holiday provision is for school aged children from reception to year 11 (inclusive) who receive benefits-related free school meals.

Benefits-related free school meals (FSM) are available to pupils if their parents are in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits, and have a claim verified by their school or local authority.

There are also some places available for children and young people who are not eligible for benefits-related free school meals but who would really benefit from attending. Professionals should talk directly to the individual providers listed on Activate Your Holidays website to discuss securing a place for these CYP.

What is it?

Activate Your Holiday programmes will be delivered across Bath and North East Somerset by a variety of local and national partners. Each provider offers different opportunities and activities so please do look out for what best suits your child!

They offer multi activity, dance and theatre, sports and play camps, along with teenage and SEND specific providers all with experience in delivering high quality holiday camps. There will also be some “roadshows” popping up across the area for the odd day and family drop-in sessions.

You can find the full list of providers and locations on the Activate Your Holidays website.
