If you are a busy working parent looking for support with childcare or just want your children to have a happy, healthy holiday then Woodrow High House Day Camps are the solution.

Running every week day throughout the school holidays we provide a great venue for children to be children.

Woodrow High House, is a 17th century manor house set in beautiful surroundings of 24 acres of woodland and gardens providing a safe environment for children to explore and use their imagination. We are located on A404 just outside Amersham, Buckinghamshire.

Our Holiday Activity Day Camps provide an open access scheme. This is a play-based provision for children over the age of 5. We are Ofsted registered and the Early Years & Childcare Registration Handbook can be downloaded here.

Younger children go on treasure hunts, fly water rockets into space and hunt for bugs in the pond, while the older ones go orienteering, try out the low rope course and work with their team mates to navigate a challenging obstacle course. Please note that some activities may be repeated at different times each week and are subject to change due to weather conditions.

We understand that swimming is one of our most popular activities, however this is not always possible. We will try our best to programme a swim into the Day Camps schedule.

Our Team:

Our enthusiastic instructors are fully qualified, DBS checked and First Aid Trained. They aim to make sure all the children have fun and come home happy and tired at the end of the day. Day Camps are fun, educational and inspiring too. Come rain or shine we run through the school holidays.
