Summer of Play

Summer of Play - Get into Summer

Logo for Parent Club Get in to Summer Campaign

During the summer holidays, we will be running a Summer of Play programme along with other local agencies in order to support the wellbeing of children and young people across Shetland.

There will be a huge range of activities for children and young people including sports, games, outdoor learning, arts and crafts and youth club sessions.   Many of these activities will be FREE!

Some of our activities will be targeted to support families on low incomes; children and young people who have additional support needs and/or a sibling with additional support needs; care experienced young people and young carers.

Please follow the the links below for further details on the range of activities on offer in Shetland throughout the summer holidays:
