Keeping older kids active

Following feedback from our holiday clubs, there is a demand for some interesting activities for older children who would no longer need holiday club care but would still enjoy outdoor activities with their peers. Mojo Active is keen to offer ad hoc courses and activities tailored for older children within the school holidays to keep them active and also help them to learn new skills, and where relevant, gain qualifications. We hope to offer a variety of courses but will need sufficient numbers to run them.

“My normally sofa-sitting teenage son really enjoyed the Mojo kayak course - it's so great to have a holiday option for older kids which isn't deemed "uncool"! Thanks so much Mojo”
