Ignite Sport > Autumn 2020

Our Holiday Camps have been keeping children and teens active and engaged since 1999!  Our highly qualified Sports coaches, teachers and playworkers are experienced in delivering safe, energetic, inspiring and most importantly, FUN activities during the school holidays.

We are proud to be working in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council as an approved delivery partner for HAF Camps.  HAF Camps run during the Easter, Summer and Christmas Holidays.

What is HAF?

HAF is the 'Holiday Activities Fund' awarded by government for children aged 4 to 16 who are in full-time education and receive free school meals.

School holidays can be particular pressure points for some families because of increased costs (such as food and childcare) and reduced incomes. For some children that can lead to a holiday experience gap, with children from disadvantaged families:

  • less likely to access organised out-of-school activities
  • more likely to experience ‘unhealthy holidays’ in terms of nutrition and physical health
  • more likely to experience social isolation

We offer children and young people free access to a programme of fun activities during the holidays.  This includes

  • sport (Multisport, Football Commonwealth Games Camp)
  • art

All children and young people who attend our activity days receive a free healthy and balanced lunch.

In 2020, government announced that the holiday activities and food programme will be expanded across the whole of England in 2021. The programme has provided healthy food and enriching activities to disadvantaged children since 2018.  This holiday provision is for children who receive benefits-related free school meals.
