Watford Community Christmas Camp

Watford Community Christmas Camp


It is our core purpose to ensure that ALL children have access to this experience and

that no child is left behind, regardless of their adverse childhood experiences,

background, disability or personal circumstances.

Our purpose is tailored towards addressing the holiday experience gap, targeting the most vulnerable children living in Watford.


We are delighted to be delivering a free programme to vulnerable children over the Christmas holidays. Such vulnarable children include those:

  • Eligible to free school meals
  • living in areas of high deprivation or from low-income households who are not in receipt of free school meals
  • With Specific Educational Needs (SEND),
  • Children Looked after (CLA),
  • Children who have low attendance rates at school or who are at risk of exclusion,
  • Ukrainian & Afghanistan families
  • Children in social care 

APF Activity Camps have teamed up with One Vision to continue to provide practical support to vulnerable individuals and families.

From 28th December until 30th December, we will be providing a free activity camp and hot meal to children living in the Watford area (aged 6-14). The camp will consist of active games and activities, specifically chosen to turn up the fun whilst giving children the chance to learn new skills, make friends and build confidence!

A typical day on camp includes high-energy team games, sports, individual pursuits, House competitions and Star of the Day certificate to the most impressive child. 

Our experienced coaches plan their sessions to make the most of the indoor and outdoor space (if available). 

The Multi-Activity programme fits into four main areas and timetabling allows students to experience at least one activity from each these per day: Our Camp extreme activities (such outdoor survival tasks, archery & capture the flag) offer risk taking and character development and a better understanding of how to keep safe. 

Our Extreme Activities will allow children extend their learning to improve or enhance skills, knowledge, and well-being by participating in non-traditional sports activities, such

as Splat Ball (paint ball), Archery-Tag, Sumo Wrestling and Giant Bouncy Castle. 

These activities are planned to allow for resilience, critical thinking, listening, visualisation and concentration.

Our traditional and non-traditional sports activities improve and enhance skill development and resilience among learners. These include badminton, dodgeball, tag-rugby and more! 

Our physical activity sessions (such as circuits and exercise to music) allow students to gain a better understanding of keeping physically healthy. These bespoke programmes increase opportunities for teamwork and therefore building friendships and allowing students to feel included. 

Our arts and crafts activities (such as resistant materials projects, clay modelling, painting and drawing) are delivered by teachers and coaches who naturally embed a ‘therapeutic’ approach to developing and improving emotional wellbeing (including reducing stress levels and anxiety).

DATES: 28th December to 30th December 2022.
