"I’ve been singing your praises to the other mums in my little one’s school"
"My three all loved it. Well done. You did a brilliant job because my lot are very hard to please. I love your staff! Thanks so much"
"Fantastic camp. Price and times are superb. Staff were brilliant. Thank you so much."
"My son had a brilliant time at the Feb half term camp, I thought the staff were really friendly and approachable, I liked the idea of a structured timetable, so we knew what to expect each day."
"The activities encouraged participation from all the kids and I think built confidence. My son made new friends and was enthusiastic and positive about each day, but above all, it was FUN! Thanks to all the staff for their effort in making sure the kids had a great time."
"Also, worth noting is the accident reporting system - my son had a small scratch on his finger that bled a little, this was reported to me via e-mail. It was nice to know that a process was in place and implemented so that I was informed straight away."
"My children enjoyed it very much"
"Keep on doing what your doing its great. Well done"
"I have tried about six local holiday clubs now over the past four years for my three children. Silver kids camp has genuinely been the biggest win for me because all three of my children actually loved it!"
"It seemed like everyone working there actually wanted to be there (sometimes this isnt the case with these holiday clubs i feel) and the staff understood straight away how to make the parents and children at ease which is particularly important with one of my children as she can lack confidence in these sorts of settings. My kids were actually excited about returning the following day, i assure you, this never happens!!! Its not a cheap camp but i think the activities and the resourses and effort thats put in makes it worth the money. The science day and the roller skate lessons were the highlights for my kids. They cant wait to go to the next camp. Im overjoyed to have found something local that is this fun and has so much thought put into it. Thank you so much silver kids camp. See you all soon!"
