I have been running fun filled confidence building camps for children aged between 5 to 12 years for over 8 yrs, I have seen many children go from strength to strength along the way. Not all children are born performers, some lack the confidence to’ have a go’ what I set out to do is encourage them to have fun and gain that confidence at the same time.
Held in Wimbledon SW19. With a teacher /child ratio of 1 to 8 the children are well cared for. All teachers are police checked. Each day the children bring a packed lunch.
Run by professional performers with many years of experience in their field. Each week has a different theme, from ‘Music Through The Ages’ to ‘The Wonderful World of Television’ and many more!
