Team Games

Youth 10-16yrs

Youth Portsmouth Daycamps offer an age and developmentally appropriate programme of activities and experience from young people in the Portsmouth area. Youth Daycamps is run with the belief that the young people attending control the direction of the programme and have ownership over what activities are undertaken and when.


Youth Portsmouth Daycamps is for young people aged from 10-16 years old.


Every weekday during all regular school holidays, drop off between 8:15am and 10:00am and collect between 4:00pm and 6:00pm. An extended day option is available from 7:15am (see below). Daycamps are not offered on Bank Holidays.

  • Summer 2017: Wednesday 26th July – Friday 1st September, closed on 28th August


Youth Daycamps run at St Luke’s Church Hall on Greetham Street, Southsea.

Our activities

Youth Daycamps offer an age and developmentally appropriate programme of activities and experiences for young people.

Our summer programme is available here.

We appreciate that not every young person is the same and may not want to take part in all activities, so young people are encouraged to direct the course of their own day which can then be delivered with the assistance of the staff team if necessary.

How much does it cost?

In 2017, the price is £26.50 per child per day.

Members who book Daycamps early can make the following fantastic savings:

20% off 15% off 10% off

Extended Day

Designed for working parents and busy schedules our extended day is offered at every main school holiday. For just £2.50 extra per day children can be dropped off from 7:15am and can even have breakfast with us.

Staff ratios

We endeavour to have a ratio of 1:12 at Youth Daycamps, however during off-site trips and outings we will always try to reduce the ratio of young people to adults as much as possible.
