School Holiday Activities at Fort Purbrook, Peter Ashley Activity Centres, Portsmouth for children aged 7 to 13.

Making new friends is now easier than ever.

The Peter Ashley Activity Centres mission has always been to care and encourage youngsters and create a place that is full of adventure, friendship, success and most importantly fun. Each participant gets to spend some healthy outdoor time with other youngsters in a new environment, where team work is encouraged and each child can develop self-confidence and friendships in a safe, exciting and secure setting.

Our instructor team is on hand all day to supervise and guide all the young participants through their time with us, it is their job to ensure the holidays are never dull. All our instructors are qualified in their activity fields and have experience in working and caring for children; and most significantly they are brilliant role models for the children in their care.

Our School Holiday Activities for children programmes run throughout every school half-term and summer holidays. The multi-activity programme guarantees no holiday blues for any 7-13-year-old. Activities vary from day to day due to weather, previous days’ programme and attendees. We also have special themed days depending on the time of year, end of summer water fight and the Halloween days are extremely popular.

Participants will get the chance to take part in five activities throughout their day at the centre. Starting at 9.15am each morning and finishing at 3.45pm, each youngster will need to come along with some snacks and lunch, some spare clothing (some activities are wet and muddy), some change if they want to buy anything from the tuckshop and most importantly they need to come along ready to have fun!

“My daughter Charlee had a lovely day here and is looking forward to coming again – a big thank you to all the wonderful staff” – 5* – Alisha Gray

“My daughter attended the centre today and had a lovely time. Thank you to all the staff for their support regards Sonia and Lana xx” – 5* – Sonia Rigby

“My daughter came for one of the holiday activity days, I was worried about leaving her as it’s not her usual cup of tea and so was her first time doing anything like this and she is quite shy and went on her own whereas i saw most other kids had friends with them… When i picked her up she was absolutely buzzing! She loved her day, rated it 10 out of 10 and told me she made friends straight away, the instructors were really friendly, fun and encouraging! The staff were also extremely polite, and helpful towards me at all times.
When i dropped her off in the morning (during my break from work so was in a hurry) i was dreading how long filling out the paperwork, paying etc would take but it was all well prepared and done in an absolute snap! Couldn’t be happier with these guys. Definately money very well spent!! Will 100% be returning for the next school holiday!! 
Thank you from myself and my daughter to all at the centre for providing such an excellent day!” – 5* – Nikki Cooke
