Holiday Clubs 2020

Planning a Holiday club in Summer 2020? Resource event May 7th!

Communities Together Durham can help you!

Easter may be a while off yet, and Summer even further, but after the fantastic work of so many of you, you may even be starting to think about putting on a Holiday Club in the Summer holidays. It may be for the first time - for the second, or for the 50th!

We would love to help you as you plan your holiday club so that it can reach as many families, be significant, and be a time for learning and growing faith & community.

On 7th May we are hosting an resource event to share ideas and offer support for anyone who has been involved in holiday clubs (or is about to be, in 2020 for the first time)

We would love you to come along to share an idea, receive ideas and support from others and hear about funding opportunities. There will be resources available for you to help you run a holiday club, so do come along.

The event starts at 6.30pm, ends at 8.30pm and you are free to come and go as you like throughout the evening. Refreshments will be provided (Tea and Coffee).

We will have representatives from the Diocese Safeguarding, Sports, Funding and there may be others too, so do have questions ready, or if you can think of someone who you think we could invite, let us know.

Event: Holiday Club Resourcing 2020

Venue: Cuthbert House, Stonebridge, Durham

Time (drop in); from 6.30pm-8.30pm

For: anyone about to be involved in holiday clubs in 2020

Cost: Free

You do not need to book ahead, but just for catering can you let us know by email please if you intend to be there.

We'll also have a ready to use resource which can be downloaded from this site, on how to start a holiday club, once its been updated well link to it

And... some of you were able to benefit from funding from Communities Together Durham for the holiday club in your area, we will be able to make financial support available, and so if this is something you would be interested in, please do email us at the link below for an application form.

There may well be things you might need to do, even at this early stage, thinking about volunteers, safeguarding, booking rooms, deciding your approach, themes (if any), activities, costs and budget, we have discovered that the earlier things are planned the better, especially, if there's new volunteers. One idea, if you have older children in your messy church or young people in the youth group - why not see if they would like to help in some way, or even be in on the planning stage..?

If you have ideas about the event, a resource or suggestion do let us know on the email contact below.
