The Summer Programme is free for any 11-16 year olds who want somewhere safe and fun to go in the summer holidays. It runs every weekday from 26th July to 17th August 2022.
We offer lots of activities to have fun and make new friends. These include:
• use of the pool table
• table tennis
• board games
• online gaming
• arts and crafts
• experimenting with musical instruments
• watching movies
• just finding a quiet, safe space to sit and relax
We also organise outside activities such as:
• ice skating
• high ropes
• day trips into Oxford and elsewhere
All of these activities are free. We pay travel expenses, free refreshments on site (fruit, drinks, sandwiches and snacks) and we make packed lunches to take on our excursions.
We also run one-hour workshops each week on themes such as relationships, drug exploitation, managing finances, bullying etc. We believe that by tackling some of the potential underlying causes of negativity, we will help young people manage their behaviour by reducing their stress. We also aim to support young people with issues that may affect them to help support their well-being.
We are grateful to Oxford City Council who fund our Summer Programme.
