Activities and sports for children and young people this half-term

Looking for something for the kids to do this half-term?

Why not give sport a try?

According to a new report, less than half of children and young people in London are meeting the recommended levels of physical activity.

With school out for half-term, what better time to start than now?

Here are our pick of the sports and activity camps taking place across the capital this half-term.

Little Foxes

Founded in 2007, the Little Foxes Club started by organising games and activities in a London park and has expanded into one of London’s more notable activity centres.

Still going strong 17 years later, Little Foxes offers a host of half-term camps throughout south-west London and attendees can expect multi-sports, football and games for kids of all ages, from 18 months to 14 years.
