Important Information; some changes to our online booking procedures for October Half Term

Posted on: October 8th, 2017

Hi Folks,

We had a brilliant summer at Stover and we hope your children enjoyed their time with us and created some really positive, lasting memories.

We did however learn some important lessons about our new online booking platform and how we need to tweak it to offer a better service to you.

We always try our best to offer the best possible experience to everyone who attends our sports camps. As you will be aware places on many activities are limited but to ensure we have adequate time to plan staffing levels and logistics for the smooth running of our camps we have moved forwards the dates that the online booking closes for both days at camp and also all additional activities.

If you know that you are one of these people who might leave their bookings until the very last minute (let’s face it this can be most of us at some point!) please be aware that you may not be able to book online and we may not be able to accommodate you so easily moving forwards.

We appreciate your cooperation with this request to book well in advance to ensure we can provide the most fun, well structured and carefully planned week of activities for your children over October Half Term and all holidays in the future.

Here are all the details for additional activities

Posted on: September 25th, 2017

Hi Folks,

We have planned an action packed and super exciting week from 23rd – 27th October over the Half Term for your children. This holiday we have tried to combine some firm camp favourites with some new activities and also added some tweaks and improvements which we think the kids are going to love.

Below is an overview of what we have in store, but if your short on time then click here to visit our additional activities page where you can download the PDF for October Half Term (just scroll down the page to the link)

Our October Half Term Additional Activities Menu for Stover School

Starting the week on Monday with a very special Dodgeball Day, there will be plenty of dodgeball on offer throughout the day. This will include some special dodgeball themed challenges and competitions. For the Rookies we will have a brilliant Emergency Survival First Aid session with Survival Steve and we also have the super popular Bubble Football available for our Semi Pro & Pro Guests (8 years and over)

Tuesday will see our Rookies & Semi Pros (primary age children) invited to join in a very special Intergalactic Nerf Wars session. Children can bring in their own guns or use ones provided by us to complete a number of fun and entertaining Nerf gun based challenges. For our Semi Pros and Pros we also have the very popular Laser Battles as an additional activity.

Wednesday we will be bringing a not to be missed ‘I’m a Celebrity’ style Wild Cooking session to camp. Children will have the option to catch, cook and taste a number of different insects. If this feels a bit too much then they are of course welcome to opt out of the tasting of insects and instead have a hot chocolate and toasted marshmallow cooked on the open fire.

Thursday we are hosting our own Robin Hood’s Golden Arrow Archery Competition. Where participants will compete within their age groups to be crowned as the Robin Hood Golden Arrow Champion. Earlier in the week in the lead up to this competition we will be using the soft archery sets daily to help prepare everyone for the big event.

To end the week on a high we will be bringing back a firm favourite that is Football Friday. Any of our Football mad guests will be able to fill their boots with optional multiple football sessions available throughout the day. We will also be offering a High 5 first when we take some of our Youngest guests to have a go at Indoor Climbing at Dart Rock. Of course this activity will not be exclusively for the Rookies and indoor climbing, bouldering and indoor caving will all be available to our over 8’s, who will attend at the same time and be taught by a different instructor/s.

The Arts & Crafts theme for the week will be The Final Frontier; Outer Space & Rockets to tie in with our Intergalactic Nerf Wars on Tuesday.

As always we will also have on offer a massive array of all your favourite sports including tennis, table tennis, basketball, capture the flag, hockey, netball, ultimate frisbee, bench ball, swedish handball, tag rugby, soft archery, cricket and lots more.

Come and join us for this action packed week, you won’t be disappointed and we know your kids will love it.


Here’s what people are saying about us……..

Posted on: September 18th, 2017

When we originally set up the High 5 Sports & Activity Camps back in 2010, our aim was to offer something more than what seemed to be available for children during school holidays.

We wanted to help all the children who came to our holiday club develop their skills and confidence across a broad range of sports and activities.

Here is some feedback we received from the parents of a child who attended the camps during this summer holidays.

Hi Ben, I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your fab team at Stover for allowing Oscar to experience his best-ever school holiday. He’s had a blast and I’ve been able to relax, safe in the knowledge that you guys ‘got’ him. He is beaming and his self esteem and confidence are at the highest they’ve been for yonks. All credit to everyone at High5. See you in half-term… and thank you again. Best wishes Nikki and Joe

Receiving feedback like this from parents helps reinforce to us that we are doing things the right way and offering your children something way more beneficial than just keeping them occupied during school holidays.

October Half Term will soon be upon us, so if you want your children to have the best possible experience during the upcoming holidays, check out our additional activities programme here

Posted on: July 28th, 2017

Our sports and activity camps offer something for everyone. This summer we are focusing on the natural environment and exploring what is right outside your front door.

We have High Ropes Tree Surfing (think go ape!) plus Outdoor Rock Climbing on Dartmoor, Caving and Surfing, Canoeing and Stand Up Paddleboarding as just some of our Additional Activity options.

We have come a long way since we were established back in 2010, and we work hard to ensure we are not like other holiday camp providers in the area. Our camps are organised and delivered by professional sports coaches, qualified teachers and outdoor pursuits instructors, meaning the quality of teaching and delivery is above and beyond what other providers can offer.

Plus we operate out of carefully chosen venues to ensure that our camps give the best possible experience to your children throughout the school holidays.

Schools out; how to keep your clan occupied, engaged, active & having fun without the use of TV, tablets or smart phones this summer!

Posted on: July 28th, 2017

Schools out, the holidays have arrived which means you still have another 4 weeks to keep your children occupied, engaged, active and having lots of fun.

The summer holidays should be a time for creating lifelong memories of long sunny days filled with adventures and activities which challenge and excite your children’s young and developing minds and bodies.

At High 5 we recognise this and aim to ensure our programme of sports and activities are both fun, varied and challenging enough to ensure we have something for everyone.

Our team of staff are chosen for their skills and qualifications so your children get the best possible balance of support and guidance during their time with us.

There are lots of different providers you could choose to help you kids get the most out of their summer, but there is only one High 5 Sports Camps and if you choose to send them to us, you will find out why so many people pick us as their first choice of holiday activity provision.

Our Favourite Quote and why we love it.

Posted on: July 17th, 2017

Everyone is a genius but if you tell a fish to climb a tree it will spend its life thinking it is useless.

We are all different, we all like different things, that’s what makes life interesting.

During the school holiday’s children need to be active, they need to have fun, they need to let off steam. So, what if they can do that in an environment that is not only safe, secure and naturally beautiful but also under the watchful eye of a carefully picked team of sports coaches and outdoor activity enthusiast who are all on hand to help them find something that really ignites an interest and a passion inside them.

That is why we are here. We assure you what we offer is not simply the same as all the others.

We have a special mission and we take our role very seriously.

If your kids spend time with us then we will find something that lights that fire within them. Come and join us and let us start to inspire them.

The Summer Holidays are almost upon us and we have put together the best possible program of activities to challenge, excite and entertain your children.

Here is a link to all the Additional Activities for both sets of holidays
