Summer holiday activity directories
To support parents and carers looking for childcare and activities during the school summer holidays 2020, Cumbria County Council and partners have today launched an online directory for each district of Cumbria which lists local options for holiday camps, childcare providers and other support services and activities.
We hope the directory makes it easier for parents and carers to find information about available services. We also aim to support childcare and activity providers to publicise their offer to parents and carers as they begin to restart activities.
You can find the directory for your area at https://www.cumbria.gov.uk/childrensservices/childrenandfamilies/cfis/.
We will be updating the directories on a regular basis as we receive more information. If you have any listings to add to the directory, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will also be posting information about events and activities on our Facebook page @ChildrenandFamiliesInformationService throughout the summer holidays.
There is further guidance for parents about attending out of school settings available on the government website at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-for-parents-and-carers-of-children-attending-out-of-school-settings-during-the-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak.
ST JOSEPH’S SUMMER SPORTS CAMPS ARE BACK!
St Joseph’s School Sports Development Officer Mr Wise is very excited to announce that he will be holding 4 weeks of sports activities over the Summer holidays.
Although there will be a lot of differences to the way the camps are run you can guarantee that they will be as vibrant and full of high energy that they normally are over the 4 weeks!
Due to the ongoing impact of Covid-19 and the need to adhere to strict Government and Sport England guidance places will be limited and we can only take full week bookings although the expansion of available places as well as one-day bookings might be available if restrictions are lifted in due course.
Mr Wise has listed below the plans for the 4 weeks, what we are offering, the costs and how to book:

27th to 31st July
17th to 21st August

PLACES AVAILABLE: 5 places per group (working with 1 Coach per group) These are current guidelines.
ACTIVITIES & LOCATION: ALL sessions will be Multi Sports (a mixture of lots of different Sports such as Football, Dodgeball, Tennis, Athletics, Cricket etc) and will take part in the Sports Hall or on the Astro pitch.
COST & TIMES: Each day will be from 10am to 2pm
Cost for the whole week is £60.00 per child. This must be paid in advance to secure your child’s place.
BOOKING: To make a booking either call Mr Wise on 07742547767 or email: email@example.com. Once booked on Mr Wise will be in touch to arrange safe collection of your booking fees.
Places will be allocated on a strictly first come, first served basis with reserve lists created in case restrictions are lifted and we are allowed to allocate more places.
A final message from Mr Wise:
“It has been so tough to miss out on the Easter and Whit sports camps this year as they are usually very well attended so i am very keen to ensure that those attending our Summer activities have the best time possible whilst also ensuring we are committed to ensuring that ALL children have an environment that is safe and worry free to enable good learning, great exercise and maximum enjoyment”.
“Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible!
