Let your child’s summer be a magical one as they join Stramash for our Celebration of Play. Each week will be themed around play and some of its many different types. As we journey through the summer we will experience the themes together, from exploring to make-believe, each week will have something to please each child. Every day will be unique as staff plan the session around the theme, but have the experience to let children take each day where they want it to go. Over the course of a week children will be offered many different experiences for example bush craft, den-building, outdoor art, and campfire cooking to just name a few. We will also use Tuesdays and Thursdays to plan mini-adventures off site to visit the varied and amazing locations around Fort William. At Stramash we know how important play is for children (and adults) so every day will ensure time for free play and child-led play. Please join us and let your child make memories that will last a lifetime!
