Suitable for children aged 8 to 12 years, the activities will run from 9am to 4pm and include multi skills, football, basketball, rounders, crafts, swimming and more. It costs £20 per day per child (£10 to Options+ leisure discount holders) and a parental consent form must be completed prior to participation.  Participants will need to bring packed lunches, refreshments and a drink bottle.

Activities include use of the swimming pools, fun float sessions, plus use of the squash courts and table tennis. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.

A fun float pool session suitable for all ages will be running in both pools at Halesowen leisure centre during the week. The sessions will take place on Tuesday 30 October and Thursday 1 November from 1.30 to 3pm in the main pool and learner pool and cost £4.30 for adults and £2.80 for under 16s.
