Half Term Holiday Club at Harewood House

We’ve got a fantastic week of activities lined up for our first kids’ holiday club this autumn!

For 7- to 12-year-olds

We’ll be doing lots of outdoor activities, games and arts and crafts inspired by all things Harewood – from making minibeast hotels, building our own pin-hole cameras, den-building, spooky Halloween trails in the House and creating our own bird sculptures!

Each day will include outdoor and indoor activities, as well as fun games led by our friendly learning team. We’ll be out and about across the site, whether visiting the penguins, doing a spot of gardening or exploring the nooks and crannies ‘below stairs’ in Harewood House. There is a maximum of 15 children on each day and children can come on single days or for the full week, unaccompanied by their grown-ups!

Here is a glimpse of our weeks’ schedule

Practicalities & Child Ages

Children do not need to be accompanied by an adult. All our staff are DBS checked and we have a full risk assessment for the week’s activities. A registration form will need to be completed for each child once you have booked and paid for your place. Children cannot participate without a registration form.

Our holiday clubs are for 7- to 12-year-olds. The club is for children only so you will need to drop your child off in the morning and collect at the end of the day.
