Camp with the animals
If your kids are animal lovers, they will relish the opportunity to sleep in close proximity to lions and giraffes. Having realised that patrons simply can’t get enough of the mighty beasts, several zoos in the UK now offer overnight packages, which generally include access to attractions outside opening hours, and plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with the park’s residents. Zoos include Port Lympne, Kent, Chessington, Surry and Camp Baboon, Bristol.
What if you could send your little ones on a holiday that could teach as well as entertain? Well that’s exactly what a bushcraft course can offer. Camp Wilderness is one such company that offers summer camps all over the UK where your tiny tearaway can master everything from fire lighting and wilderness camping, to archery.
Push their limits
For miniature thrill seekers, it has to be an adventure holiday. Offering any number of outdoor activities, including rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing and circus skills, these experiences boost confidence and offer a unique bonding experience where your child very well might make friends for life. Go to PGL.co.uk for a comprehensive list of adventures.
Get on your bikes
For a family holiday that will leave you all considerably fitter while seeing some extraordinary places, consider a cycling trip.
