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. At the Academy children will learn about fitness, healthy eating and nutrition, wellbeing, and team-building.

We are proud to have some amazing local businesses working with us. Flints, a new business to Hitchin will be supplying healthy smoothies daily for the children to have as one of their snacks. The children will even have the opportunity to make and design their own smoothies, by using Flints new and exciting urban smoothie bike that powers the smoothie blender by the use of peddling! They will learn about healthy eating, nutrition and learn essential life skills of cooking wellbeing.

We have the team from Krav Maga joining us on Wednesday 2nd August. Krav Maga is a realistic and effective form of self-defence. It teaches you to defend yourself against all kinds of threats and attacks. From common slaps, chokes, and grabs, to all situations with weapons. It will also show you how to deal with more than one assailant. But it's not just about fighting; it’s about being aware of the situations, recognising a problem before it happens, improving your ability to respond quickly and solving that problem whilst under stress.

The Taymount Clinic will be providing snacks throughout The Academy. Taymount are experts in Digestive Health. Working with clients to improve and maintain a healthy gut. Taymount have been working with patients with many common digestive health problems successfully for a number of years. The Taymount Clinic is famous across the globe as a pioneer in digestive health and FMT (faecal microbiota transplant). The children will learn first-hand excellent information on healthy eating and nutrition.

Adam Shaw the brainchild of Sports 121, will be at The Academy on the Friday session, delivering an engaging and enjoyable multi sports session. With his experience in top quality coaching and expert in his field, the students will learn first hand sports skills and training which will enhance their abilities in sports and fitness.

Sarah Graham a local Artist from Hitchin famous for her vibrant joyful oil paintings, will be bringing her creative flare to The Academy in the ‘Art Vibes’ session which runs on Friday 4th. Much of Sarah’s masterpieces are reflective of things you associate with childhood which evoke a sense of wonderment and nostalgia. With this is mind, Sarah’s involvement on The Academy and working with the students is guaranteed to be fun, creative and very colourful!

4B Medical is a medical company focusing on BURNS, BLEEDING, BREAKS-FRACTURE, BREATHING-CPR. They make First Aid Kits to cater many different demands. Martin Podrasky Head of Business for 4B Medical has been working alongside Ladder 87 to create basic First Aid Kits suitable for children. With simplicity in mind, the idea of colour coding items with a basic key guide to refer to, which clearly allows the child to identify which item is used for which emergency. Keeping with the 4B's idea the First Aid kits are for Burns, Bruises, Bleed and Bumps. On the health and safety session running on Tuesday 1st August, each child will receive a First Aid kit (worth £15).

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.
