For many years, my eldest son B has been attending FootieBugs Holiday Camp. It all began with him sharing his love for football and his desire to play…all the time! He loves to play, watch and even read about his favourite teams! (read my review on an amazing personalise football book here!) As a busy working Mum of three children, it can be hard to find holiday camps that really please the kids. A lot of holiday camps are either linked to schools, are too expensive or are not meeting my child’s needs.
When I came across FootieBugs camp back in 2014, I was amazed at what it offered as a class. Multiple trained coaches, a friendly supportive team on hand and a fun and exciting environment. As B was a huge lover of football, how could I say no to a holiday camp that was perfect for him!
FootieBugs offers a safe and fun environment for children aged 4- 16 years of age. The camps are hugely popular for active kids that want to spend all day having lots of fun, making new friends and learning football skills along the way. Classes typically run from 9.30am – 3.30pm however there is an option to have extended hours. The camp offers the children to explore their skills (they can learn up to 4 skills per day!) play football games and even take part in team matches. There is also an opportunity for free play and of course time for lunch to keep their energy levels up!
As any parent will agree, we want to ensure that our children are in safe hands. I want to feel reassured that my children are not only having fun, but are active and learning whilst playing. The team at Footiebugs offers all that, and I am can safely say that B loves it! I find the coaches to be really personal and inform me immediately how B’s day has been or if he has achieved a new skill – I love having such feedback! The coaches are so approachable and nothing is too much trouble!
What I love about the Holiday Camps is that during Friday’s class they offer an awards ceremony and each child will be awarded with a certificate and a medal – everyone leaves a winner! They may be lucky and even receive a trophy for their hard work!
The venue for FootieBugs in Solihull is a great venue. It’s location is Solihull Sixth Form College. With the option to play both inside a large hall and outside on grass turf, whatever the weather the kids still can get stuck into their football. DanceBugs and Multisport Bugs is also located here. So even if you have children attending separate activity camps, you only need to do one drop off! There is even a separate place for them to eat their lunch, lockers and toilets are easily accessible.
B’s sister W is now 4 years old and has recently started to express an interest. She attended her first class this week and loved it! However, if this is not something she wishes to attend in the future, she does have the option to attend DanceBugs Holiday camp, or Multi sports Holiday camp. The Bugs group have really so much to offer to our kids during the holidays and its exciting to see them grow as a business with their dedication and handwork being appreciated by us parents!
FootieBugs is a holiday camp that my children ask to go to. Simple. That in itself speaks volumes and I am confident that that will not change. If you are a parent seeking a holiday camp that is active, fun and is full of an exciting schedule then look no further than The Bugs Group!
