School Holiday Activities

Holiday Boredom Buster

“Mum, Dad, we’re bored!” Do you dread hearing this in the school holidays? At Alter Rock we run special activity sessions for children during the Derbyshire school holidays that are not just fun but develop their skills and tire them out too.

Please note these children’s holiday activity sessions run during Derbyshire school holidays, Derbyshire County Council School holidays

On our Holiday Havoc afternoons you can drop them off 12 till 4pm and have time to yourself.

And we guarantee they won’t be bored!
