Black Friday! It’s one of the busiest shopping days of the year. With an estimated £8 billion being spent by British consumers over the course of this weekend. Most people are busy buying material gifts to exchange over Christmas.

But this year why not buy your child an experience that could really benefit them. We have a wide range of camps running over the school holidays in 2021 with everything from Multi Activity to Cookery to Freestyle Football and much more in between.

After being cooped up in lockdown this year, give them the holidays that they deserve. Take the stress out of the school holidays and book your child on to an Activate Camp today, allowing them to have an amazing holiday and giving you some time to kick back and relax.

We are now offering a 20% discount for the next 5 days (until midnight 1st December) off all camps for 2021 using the code FUN20.

Covid Money Back Guarantee

Our Black Friday 20% sale is taking place from Friday 27th November until Tuesday 1st December. We understand that you may be hesitant to book your child’s place in the current climate which is why we’ve introduced our COVID money back guarantee.

ACTIVATE YOUR CAREER

Activate has been a great release from my studies and has been a enjoyable job which works perfectly around studies, social commitments and other employment, or previous jobs.
