About Magic Camp

Join us for a weeklong magical experience, costumes, potions and puppet making!

What will you learn on this course?

Children will unleash their creativity as through drama, crafts and song they will explore a “Harry Potter™” inspired world. Everyday children will explore a different magical theme;

Magic 101: You can’t cast spells without your magic wand! We’ll start the Charms module by diy-ing our own magic wands. Our outfits wouldn’t be completed without our magic capes and badges! With a little bit of magic and lots and lots of fun, everyone is going to be making their own wizarding school uniform!

Wizarding Choir and Potions: All good wizarding students must take part in extra activities! We will form our very own choir to learn the latest magical songs. Later, the children will combine chemistry with magic and they will also get to take some of their concoctions home. Colourful potions and slime and are just a few of the magical brews that we will be mixing.

Transfiguration: The children will start by building their own familiar spirit using puppet making techniques. After they build their puppet, we will have a mask-making workshop so they can switch places with their familiar spirit. We will also learn the basics of puppeteering and slowly build our way towards a short puppet show!

Magic Decorations: This is where we will put our craftiness to good use. Throughout the day we will be making a range of themed crafts and decorations. Not forgetting our very own twisted trees, popping ‘chocolate’ frogs and much more!

Magic Mayhem: After four days of intense magic crafting, everyone deserves a party! We will be using our magical creations and the rest of the day will be filled with loads of fun games, activities and surprises! The day will of course feature our puppet show and Wizarding Choir.

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for children aged 6 to 11 years. It is open to all ability levels and children don’t need previous experience. Parents are not expected to accompany children on these courses. All our staff are DBS checked.
