New Year’s Camp!

If you’re normally stuck for childcare in the New Year, have no fear!

Brand new to Summer Fields School only for 2024 is our New Year’s Active Camp (Monday 2 Jan – Friday 5 Jan).

Expect extended festive fun and lots of cheer as we all continue the celebrations into the New Year before school starts.


Due to limited pool timings, we are unable to guarantee that every child will swim every day. If your child would like to take part in swimming when it is available, please make sure they bring their swim kit each day. Access to the pool is not guaranteed during every holiday, due to the unpredictable nature of pool maintenance.

Sample timetable

A flavour of the kind of activities we run at camps in an example timetable...

Oxford Active is excellent at Summerfields school. My children find the days are full of fun and pass quickly. Plenty of fresh air and outdoor exercise. They are put in bubbles with their friends and the staff so welcoming!

Ruth Tate

We absolutely love Active Camps. They are so welcoming and take time to get to know the children, hand overs usually come with a cheery story or funny occasion that happened during the day. Kids always come out with handfuls of crafts, baking or some other creation!

Jess Mackenzie

My daughter really loves Oxford Active Camps - she looks forward to them for weeks in advance, and is always full of excitement at the end of the day, keen to tell me all about the fun she's had and the friends she's made.
