We get booked up 2-3 months in advance so make sure you get in touch with plenty of time if you'd like to secure your party date.
Our Summer camp at Belmont Children's Farm in Mill Hill was fantastic! Across the 9 days, 72 children joined us and everyone had a brilliant time with us. Feedback from parents was extremely positive and several people booked extra days. The farm staff went all out and we had some interesting lessons about the animals and fun egg hunt on one of the days.
We are hoping to have a winter camp this year but it depends on the farm as they are looking to do some renovations. Watch this space!

EASTER CAMP AT BELMONT CHILDREN'S FARM, MILL HILL NW7 3RD-5TH APRIL 2017 - 10am-3pm
We had a fabulous Easter camp with 22 children joining in the fun over the course of the three days. Camp was a combination of drama, music, dance, art and farm activities.

In art we made some amazing magic bunnies/sheep magnets, pop-up foam bunnies and Easter bookmarks. In drama, music and dance we loved playing different Easter characters, giggling at the 'Banana silly language game', playing our egg instruments with Milo the monkey and of course singing lots of lovely songs and showing off our best dance moves during our mini-disco each day.

Numberjacks 5th Birthday Party
A lovely little boy requested a Numberjacks party for his 5th birthday party and although we have set themes, we are able to tailor our parties to a specific theme for a small extra cost to cover costume and research.

It was lots of fun and we had great feedback!
