FUSION Creative Camps
FUSION Creative Camps – online holiday club for families, returns to Barnsley this October half term
Due to popular demand extra session available
Starting on Monday 26th October, Barnsley children can take part in three FREE creative online sessions across the week (with each session lasting up to an hour) via Zoom.
Activities will be suitable for children aged from 5 to 11 years and parents are very welcome too. The sessions are led by professional artists and cultural organisations who use games and interactive activities to set children a weekly challenge to explore using drama, art, crafts, music and dance.
The activities support children’s wellbeing and are designed to be fun and as easy as possible for families of all artistic abilities to take part. There will be at least one option that does not require the use of any resources and those that do will be made up of basic materials found around the house.
