Throughout the day:

The day will be split into several sessions offering different sports/activities. Our staff will encourage children to take part in all the different elements of the session helping to promote and excel no matter what the level. Sometimes our team will help children excel in a particular favourites. We will have short breaks between each session and these breaks will allow the children to unwind and prepare for their next chosen activity. Lunch is normally between 12 and 1.30 (a packed lunch is needed) and we will also provide a place for arts and crafts.



HDO Day Example:

HDO is the perfect place to entertain those who are just starting to enjoy sports as well as those who already have a clear talent for sport. Our coaches range from county to international professionals and can boast great teaching success throughout a number sports. What better place to help your children improve and excel before school starts?


For any more information please don't hesitate to contact us using our contact us drop down tab or emailing at

How ages are split:

Attendees will be in age specific groups. These groups will have a programme of sports/activities that will be developed for that particular age group. HDO knows that learning with your peers will help development and greater advance their skill set.

We would never mix ages should there be any safety issues. 



We understand that swimming is a big concern for parents and it shouldn't be. Before any swimming session children will do a non pressurised swim test that allows our lifeguards and swimming teachers to assess swimming levels. 

Our swimming sessions are always heavily staffed  and we are very strict in the policing of the pool to make sure it is as safe as any other sport that takes place. 

HDO provides children with armbands for those that need it. 

Swimming will be offered at least 2 times a week and notice of these days will be given to parents prior to the start of the camp. When possible, HDO may add extra swimming days.

"Just to say a huge thanks for making the Easter holidays so much fun for Josh and Sam. They had an absolutely brilliant time, were so eager to get out of the house every morning and full of news about what they had been doing during"

"My two children, aged 9 and 4 absolutely love Holiday Drop-Off. They enjoy the variety of activities on offer and meeting other children. They feel safe and secure in a familiar environment and always ask to go back each holiday. The staff are warm, friendly and welcoming and my children are always delighted to see them again. I have no hesitation in recommending Holiday Drop-Off"

"My 5 year old son had a really enjoyable time at the October half term HDO. He has been to other holiday clubs but HDO is by far his preferred option. He really enjoyed trying out new sports like archery, and loves the trampoline, but its the relaxed, friendly and individual approach of the team that makes HDO different and so much better than other holiday clubs. He happily did his first full week with HDO, something I would not have even contemplated with another club"

"Amazing camp, amazing staff"
