What happens at Blair’s Bears Club

We pride ourselves on providing a Youth Programme which gives your littles ones the chance to play, make new friends, explore and learn throughout the summer. We offer a wide range of activities from outdoor games to indoor crafts, science experiments, baking and much, much more.  We’ve invited a few local organisations to run informative chats and talks throughout the summer too.

We’ll be running ‘themed’ weeks from seaside, oceans and pirates to animals, fairies and unicorns -so they’ll be something for everyone!

We’ll also be organising field trips, and special outings too- but don’t worry, we’ll always send home permission slips and advanced warning with all outing details!
