Hampshire charity runs key worker child holiday clubs

This Easter, Hampshire charity Youth Options was one of the organisations to host holiday clubs for the children of key workers in Eastleigh, Andover, and the surrounding areas.

Following Government guidelines on social distancing, these Ofsted registered holiday clubs allowed children to make the most of their Easter Holiday and help key workers to continue to support the local community.

Located at Itchen Valley Country Park and their own Outdoor Learning Centre in Eastleigh, the Youth Options Woodland Holiday Club gave children aged 4-11 the opportunity to spend the day outside exploring and enjoying nature. Children were able to learn new skills and take part in activities such as shelter building, campfire cooking, woodland art, games, nature walks and habitat exploration.

The Scott Centre in Andover offered a mix of fun and learning with a variety of arts and crafts and sporting activities. The charity is also running after school clubs where children can be collected from their school and enjoy sports, arts and crafts, social time, computer activities, a homework area, a quiet area, and outside play.
