Summer Holiday Clubs on the Isle of Wight

Published:

The school holidays can be hard to juggle as a parent but they can also be a great opportunity for kids to gain new experiences, build confidence, acquire skills, make friends and most importantly...have fun!

We’ll be adding to it as we go along and updating it before each holiday period. If you run a holiday club that you’d like to get featured in this article, please get in touch with fiona@isleofwightrocks.co.uk
