About Rileys Kids Camps

Guaranteed fun for your little ones


Rileys Kids Camps offer exciting, fun filled days EVERY half term at Awsworth Primary and Albany Junior School. Children aged 4+ are invited to attend, from any school in Nottingham/Derbyshire. 

If you're looking for child care, that is affordable, fab value for money and will leave your little ones tired out, telling you all the fun things they've done in the day and telling you all their new friends names... then Rileys Kids Camps is for you!

Our days are scheduled with varied sports such as benchball, dodgeball (kids fave), hockey, cricket, basketball and of course football. We also have archery, play games like 'Capture the flag' and 'Treasure island' as well as free play.

Not forgetting our arts & crafts hour most days! From making rockets, designing your own outfits, spaghetti tower building and battle ship building out of recycling... we do it all!

We have introduced external companies to enhance our provision, which offers your little ones a broader variety of opportunities during their time with us. 

We are looking to use local companies who can bring their expertise in to our settings and provide workshops for our children across a variety of areas. To date we have used; Lions Learners, who is a local petting zoo showcasing a variety of reptiles and animals to our children. Jake Wood PT who provides workshops around health and wellbeing and food education. Minii & Maxii and CAD for Fashion, who deliver workshops around art and creative design. We also use Polkadotplay for the hire of their bounce houses and inflatables duding our camps. 

If you feel you could bring something unique to our camps, please contact us.

We asked the parents what they thought of our Kids Camps...


Lucy (Parent)

Blayne and his team have been absolutely fantastic with my children over the summer holidays and absolute lifesavers when it comes to childcare. Delilah and Rex really enjoy all the activities that they offer and are super excited to go and meet new friends. I couldn’t think of a better role model for them both and would 100% recommend

What is your cancellation policy?

Unfortunately due to staffing ratios, if you have booked a child on our camp we are unable to refund you as we will have already organised enough staff for the day.
