What is Holiday Club?
Hexham Holiday Club is a week long programme of fun, informative and action-packed faith based events and activities for children of all ages. It has been a part of Hexham Summer holidays for over 40 years and is run by volunteers from Churches Together in Hexham in association with Scripture Union.

Do I have to come to church to attend?
No, everybody's welcome.

Will my child be brainwashed?
In Hexham? We think not. You probably know half the 'team' already. We're in this for the long haul, so rather than an intense week of pressure (although it is for the 'team') it will be a fun week where children get to know each other, a little bit about the Bible and hopefully get a chance to find out how much God loves them.

Who is on the team?
All the 'team' are volunteers, most of whom come from Hexham churches. All 'team' members have been CRB cleared.

Does it cost anything?
All activities during Holiday Club week are free of charge, although there are opportunities to give a donation.

Can I leave my child and go and do something else?
For 'Storytime', we ask an adult to stay with any child under the age of 4 years old. For all other age-group activities (School Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Years 3-4 & Years 5-7) that take place in the mornings, you may leave your child(ren) at the relevant venue from 10.30am. We also ask that you return to collect your child(ren) promptly at 12.30pm each morning. You will need to inform us if somebody else is coming to collect your child(ren), and also provide an emergency contact, preferably a mobile telephone number. In the evenings, for 'Nightshift' (13yrs+), we expect that many of the young people will be unaccompanied.

Do I have to register?
Every child attending Holiday Club has to be registered. This helps us in terms of health and safety, dietary needs etc. You can register in advance by downloading a registration form from the website or collecting a form in person from The Cedar Tree shop on Beaumont Street. Registering your child(ren) in advance is our preferred option as it helps us plan and organise effectively, as well as help you avoid a possible delay on the first morning your child(ren) attends Holiday Club.

What about special needs?
We do all we can to accomodate everybody. Please note on registration forms any special needs your child(ren) might have, or email us early with particular requests.

Will Holiday Club be running next year?
Yes, Hexham Holiday Club has been running each summer for over 40 years now.

I've enjoyed Holiday Club so much that I'd like to do it throughout the year. What can I do?
There are events scheduled throughout the year, check the Calendar page of this website regularly for more details.
