Activities and events for children and young people over the Summer holidays

The Summer Staycation is back!

For the second year running The City of Doncaster’s Mayor Ros Jones has made it a priority to provide funding to ensure that all Doncaster families have access to a summer jam-packed full of activities. The Mayors fund will again ensure that all children and young people, from primary to post-16 will be able to experience activities that families may not ordinarily be able to access.

Most of the activities are free but some do have a small charge. There is a huge list of activities on offer with more being added throughout the summer.

Ros Jones, Mayor of The City of Doncaster Council said: "I am very proud to be funding the Summer Staycation to ensure that summer fun is available to every family in Doncaster.  I know many people will be feeling the effects of the continuing cost of living crisis but for some families the impact is far greater, particularly with the added financial burden that the long school holidays bring.

"By providing access to physical activity, the initiative offers a wide range of fun activities which some children may not usually have the chance to enjoy, and I am delighted that I can continue to support a Summer to be enjoyed by all.”

Running alongside the main Summer Staycation, the Holiday and Food programme, funded by the Department of Education will be running again this year.  It is designed to provide free healthy food & enriching activities for primary and secondary school aged children who receive benefits-related free school meals.

From sports camps, circus workshops, music sessions & even alpaca walks - there are lots of free activities,to find out if you are eligible
