Description

The Ladder 87 Summer Academy™ 2017

Monday 31st July - Friday 4th August

8am - 6pm everyday

With our proven commitment to positive social interaction in a fun and engaging way, The Ladder 87 Summer Academy™ is now ready! With fully first aid trained and DBS checked staff, your children are in safe hands with our crew.

As with all Ladder 87 projects, the whole event will have our core values running throughout. Plans are in place for interactive fitness, nutrition, wellness, and team-building activities which will include an assault course, team activities and cooking/food preparation.

There will be exercises on essential life skills along with advice on safety in various situations. These will include guidance for children whilst on holiday, when online, when near or in open water and when using the road as either a pedestrian or whilst in a vehicle.

Factored into the day will be regular breaks and chill-out time, so that the children can fully recharge their batteries and get ready for the next activity. Included in the package will be 3 meals a day, with healthy snacks included (some of which the children will make themselves!!).

The Academy will be open to children aged from 4 to 12.
