Dash Day Camps

Finding a fun, safe and stimulating environment for your children to spend the school holidays isn’t easy, which is why Tandridge Trust is proud to offer Dash at de Stafford Sports Centre in Caterham. From 8.30am to 5pm our day camps provide a great way for 5-12 year olds to make friends, keep fit and above all enjoy themselves. We also provide a half day to suit your needs too.

Each day is different and can be made up of activities such as swimming, football, cricket, tennis, team games or arts and crafts. Each activity is supervised by our qualified and friendly staff – many of whom have been returning to Dash term after term.

A typical Dash day:

  • 8.30am – sign in
  • 8.45am – team games to break the ice
  • 9.30am - badminton
  • 10.30am-10.45am – snack break
  • 10.45am - swimming (over 8s only)
  • 12noon – 1pm – Lunch time (half day Dash)
  • 1pm – Beat the goalie
  • 2pm – arts and crafts
  • 3.30pm – parachute games
  • 5pm – home time for everyone

We like to theme our days too – we might base it around planned visits from Surrey Police or the Fire Brigade. We might earmark a Superheroes and Villains day or a Football Fever day where youngsters are invited to wear their favourite team’s colour.

‘Your staff are fantastic. Polite, happy, enthusiastic, caring and always remember the children’s names from before…even at 8.30am!’

‘I cannot speak highly enough of your wonderful staff, thank you.’
