We run activity programmes in the school holidays, which include sports and cultural activities aswell as camping holidays and residentials.
We have worked in collaboration with the South Bank Centre, Natural History Museum, Royal College of Art, Pump House Gallery, Tara Arts, Urban Arts Academy to name a few.
Holidays include camping in Gloucestershire, Family holidays to Degmo Somali farm camp in wales and Haven Hastings and youth activity holidays at Hindleap Warren Outdoor education centre in the Ashdown Forest.
When we talk to the children and young people they nearly always mention trips as their favourite thing about being involved with Love to Learn.
