Bounce is a free activity club for children aged between 5-11years. Activities include multi sports, arts and crafts, and board games. All sessions are run by volunteers from Student Community Action.
We accept bookings for all children although priority is given to children with additional needs or who are disadvantaged in some way. Due to the health and safety of all participants we need all of the children to be able to follow instructions, engage in the activities and be toilet trained. Parents are asked to stay for the first session at least until the volunteers and child are happy for them to leave.
