The University works in partnership with playscheme providers to support families during the school holiday periods. Please see information below for provider details.
Oxford Active: Active Camps
Our range of school holiday camps are ideal for creating some of the most memorable holidays kids will experience and give an opportunity for them to make new friends. Holiday camps can also provide a much needed diversion over the school holidays, allowing kids to have fun while parents know they are in safe hands and learning new skills.
We offer a range of activities including outdoor adventure activities, drama and dance, arts and crafts and various sport activities. Our activity camps can include traditional sports like football, cricket, basketball or tennis and there are also outdoor pursuits like assault courses, canoeing, kayaking, raft building, treasure hunts, orienteering, and survival skills.
The activities offered give children the chance to learn and experience new things that might not be available to them throughout the school year. It can be a life-changing experience that helps children to grow, not only because they may learn new skills, but they also grow and develop emotionally and mentally.
Our camps take place at the following venues (please click on a venue for full details):

Create Holiday Club Oxford Montessori Schools (Forest Farm)
'Create' has now been successfully running for over 5 years. We employ qualified teachers, so the children can learn as well as have fun at the playscheme. ‘Create’ takes place at Forest Farm, our farm school environment in Elsfield. We cook, paint, walk, take part in drama, music and dance, learn bushcraft skills and care for animals (our ponies, hens & peacock). Our history teacher Taryn leads special workshops during the summer holidays and, as she is also a costume maker, the children are able to dress up in period costumes. They adore playing Tudors or Elizabethans for the day. There is a bus services from various destinations in central Oxford. Please click Oxford Montessori Create for further information.
