Fettes Active Multi-Activity Camp

24 July to 28 July 2023

Fettes Active is a joint initiative by Fettes Enterprises and Fettes College that offers five-day sports development and multi-activity camps for young people throughout the summer holidays. Our multi-activity camp promises to offer its participants a mixture of sports, activities and whole-camp events to ensure everyone is engaged, happy and active at all times.

A fun,
rewarding camp for local children

Drawing on our many years of experience in running residential camps for foreign students, Fettes Enterprises and Fettes Active offered our first non-residential summer camp experience for local children in 2021. That camp, along with the 2022 camp, was fully-subscribed and highly successful, so we are pleased to offer another camp in 2023, from 24th to 28th July, for children aged 8-13.

Time to get together

By offering a wide variety of activities, from pizza making to swimming and from arts & crafts to football, plus a whole-camp event each afternoon, we aim to provide a safe, fun and nurturing environment for young people to enjoy themselves, make friends and get active.

A unique programme

Our programme is designed to give every child an opportunity to participate in a variety of sport and activity sessions as well as whole-camp events. Children will be placed in groups for some activities and will have an opportunity to choose some of the sports and activities they participate in. They will take part in a whole-camp event each afternoon and will enjoy two fun swim sessions in the Westwoods pool as well as finishing off the week with slip 'n' slide, weather permitting. Sports such as football, kwik cricket and touch rugby will be offered alongside activities like tie dye t-shirts, bottle rockets and pizza making led by Fettes College’s own chefs. Every afternoon will feature a fun, whole-camp event like Capture the Flag, Fettes Active Olympics or Campus Cluedo .

An Amazing Location

The programme will be held in the stunning grounds of Fettes College with some activities, including swimming, held at Westwoods Health Club. We will also make use of the campus’ extensive sporting facilities as well as its beautiful art room in the modern, flagship Spens Building.

What's Included?

The Fettes Active Multi-Activity Camp is a week-long non-residential programme for 8- to 13-year-olds. The camp will run from 9am to 5pm with drop-off from 8:30am and pick-up at 5pm from 24th to 28th July. Each morning will consist of a choice of set activities followed by a sport or activity in the children's groups. We will offer a variety of sports and activities in each session so every child can participate in something that appeals to their interests, mood and energy level. After a lunch break (please provide a packed lunch for your child), the children will participate in a set activity of their choice followed by another sport or activity and a whole-camp event to finish off the day. Friday afternoon, weather permitting, will include slip 'n' slide and prize giving.
