Holiday Camp FAQs

What should my child wear?

Children should wear comfortable clothes - not their best outfit please, as we plan to keep them busy and active! An apron or old shirt for messy chemistry activities is handy. If the venue has access to outdoor space (i.e. a playground), your child may want to go out to play during break times so please bring suitable outdoor clothing according to the weather​.​ This may include, but is not limited to a waterproof coat and woollies or sun cream ​​​​​and a hat.

What should my child bring?

Children should bring a healthy, balanced packed lunch and drink suitable for an active day, plus any snacks for break times. Squash is provided for the morning and afternoon breaks, and water is available throughout the day.

If your child has any special dietary needs or severe food allergies, please make sure you let us know when you complete the booking form and provide any medical equipment necessary to treat them if accidental food contamination was to occur. The more information we have, the better prepared we are to care for your child in an emergency.

Will my child get a break?

Yes. Our timetable is similar to a school day, providing a 20 minute morning break and an hour for lunch. The first half of the lunch hour is an activity free zone to encourage children to eat all their lunch. After this there is time for free play.

Why is there no holiday camp in my area?

Bright Sparks Science is currently making contacts in the local area and across Oxfordshire to see where our services are required. We have only booked in science camps in locations where an interest for the activities has been expressed.

How do I set up a science camp in my area?

If you would like Bright Sparks Events to organise a science camp in your area please get in touch. Holiday camps can be held at a local village hall, community centre or school, so if you know of a good venue, then please let us know. These venues often charge for hiring the premises and usually require a deposit when booking. So if you did want a holiday camp to run in your area we would need a minimum of 15 children expressing an interest to ensure it is a success.


If you would just like some help entertaining your children and their friends at home during the holidays, then we can provide science activities on smaller scale. Please contact us to discuss what options are available.
