October is Magical! We've got Gary James coming along to show up some magic tricks. Rocket making and science on Friday. Lots of Halloween activities too.
With drop off from 8am and pick up until 6pm. Let Excel entertain and educate the kids this October break.

Excel have exactly what you need this October with an action packed, spooky themed programme full of fun, skills development and friends for your children.

The week will have a variety of sporting activities, tournaments, team games and film making, all with a Magical feel.

There is also a specialised week of Football for those wanting to train and play football for a part of each day. See more about the Football Week Here.

Attending children can look forward to a visit from Gary James magician on Tuesday, design a pumpkin on Wednesday, with film making and halloween masks to make on Thursday and finally they can find their inner Harry Potter or Hermione Granger with broomsticks and more Halloween fun on Friday. We also have a session of Fun Science on Friday making Rockets. Mr Zbikowski is a Science teacher from The Edinburgh Academy and will help the children make sure the week ends with a bit of excitement....!!!!

Parents and carers are invited to attend the end of week show on Friday at 4.30pm to watch the highlights of the week and films made by children on the big screen, and attend the prize giving.

All equipment is provided but you are welcome to bring your own specialist equipment if you prefer e.g. tennis racket.

Remember your order ref no as you will need this to sign your child in and out of camp.

Wear clothing suitable for the season and a full active day eg shorts and tracksuit bottoms, trainers, fleece and a waterproof. We like to get outside as much as possible.

Due to allergies Excel does not provide food. Bring snacks and a packed lunch full of nutritous food fit for a full, active day. Sweets are not a good source of energy! St George's often provide a snack at the end of the day but this will be given after sign out, to allow you to decide if it is suitable.

Bring a refillable water bottle. Water is available at the water fountains for refills.

If you need to bring medicine you will be asked to fill out a form at the start of the week and this will be kept stored for you in case it is required. This can be stored in a fridge if required.

Please do not bring ipads, tablets or telephones. If you do need a telephone, you will be asked to hand it in at the start of the day. This is to protect the taking of images of children.
