We offer school holiday Daycamps in four locations across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. All of our Daycamps are Ofsted inspected and a reflection of our values – welcoming, active, listening, inspiring, caring and exciting!  We put children at the forefront of our work ensuring we deliver on our mission to ‘champion and add value to young lives by providing experiences that challenge, enable and develop the individual.’

YMCA is the leading childcare provider across the south, where we’ve been delivering exciting school holiday activities since the early 1980s, offering tens of thousands of children fantastic experiences and lasting memories.
