Who are your staff?
All our staff come from different backgrounds but all have one thing in common which is offering the BEST activity camps in the East Midlands. Our staff are recruited for their attitude, enthusiasm and dedication to caring for children. Some are teachers and some are training to be teachers. Some are coaches and some are lifeguards. We have lots of returning staff, and lots of people from other activity camps. Naturally they are cleared by the Criminal Records Bureau at the Enhanced Level.
How do I know what my child is doing during the day?
Every single day numerous activities are available. If you wish to find out exactly what your child will be doing on that day please ask the coaches in the morning what options they have available for the day.
Can I get some feedback on my child's day?
Certainly. At the end of each day our staff will be more than happy to talk to you in the collection area and tell you all about how much fun they have had in their group on that day.
What if I want to change my booking?
What are event days?
Often we have 'special guests' visit us on site, offering children slightly different experiences to what we normally provide. Event days are charged at the normal full day price, (no short day price otion) however children can still be collected early if needed.
You can use childcare vouchers as full or part payment at the majority of our sites. You can book this online. Your booking will save on our system for 7 days until we receive your childcare vouchers. After this date, if we haven't received payment for your booking it will be automatically removed.
We use the childcare voucher companies listed below, but we will always add a new one if you use another provider.
Contact your childcare voucher company to forward the payment to us, quoting your customer or booking ID as a reference. This payment can take up to 7 days to reach us, so in the meantime your booking will remain as a 'provisional' booking. Once we have been notified of your payment we will confirm your booking with an email. If you are unsure how to proceed please call us on 0115 943 6210 and we can run through the process.

My daughter has had a great time at her first holiday club, she's thoroughly enjoyed herself and looking forward to coming back in the future. Great job ha4k.
"My kids (Alana and Aidan) had a great time on Friday at the HA4K camp. They've asked already to go back in October."
My children loved the archery. It is good for them to do things they can't do at home.
"My children enjoyed the day especially my 5 year old"
"My kids absolutely loved their time at HA4K and are already asking if they can go for the upcoming half terms! I liked the fact there was an option of a longer session and also the time was 8:15 - 5:00 rather than the usual 9 - 3 that other holiday clubs offer."
My son enjoyed all the activities on offer but he is very sporty. My more creative girl also loves HA4K because of the arty side of your holiday camps
"My son has been attending your camps this week and he has really enjoyed himself. All the staff were very helpful and the activities seemed well organised. Please pass on our thanks to all involved."
Jake really enjoyed the Easter camp. His favourite activities were the Tri-golf, gymnastics, making slime and archery. Just to name a few. Amazing experience!
"Loved it - preferred to others. Staff very welcoming - made an anxious child feel very at ease."
Lovely staff, quality equipment and nice venues. More unusual sports such as archery, fencing and scootability - My daughter loved the chance to have a go at these.
My children have loved every minute of their time with HA4k! They have met new friends and enjoyed lots of different activities ranging from football, dodgeball and archery! Both children have asked to go again in all the holidays! Both children have said how nice the leaders are and best of all for me I have 2 smiley faces on both children!
My 2 boys loved their day full of activities and can't wait to come again! Thanks
"Kids have been to their first camp this week and absolutely loved it. Good variety of sports and activities, been to other camps and my daughter always complaining about too much football...not this one!"
My daughter had a great time and such an affordable cost for week..
"Kids loved it and wanted to go back."
My 7 year old loved it and will be going again. He said he enjoys it as it's fun and lots of good activities. Great value for money too
"Just a quick note to praise the HA4K team for an excellent summer"

"Max loved his couple of days at the HA4K Camp. Very professionally run and fantastic value for money!"
"My daughter very much enjoyed the camp at Ockbrook Cricket Club because there were plenty of activities. She also liked the fact that you weren't allowed to call out and basically she was saying that there was strong leadership at the camp. There were also breaks in the morning and afternoon."
