Introducing our Chill Out Zone

Our early drop off’s and late pick ups are now able to enjoy a relaxed but structured atmosphere

  • Football (Half the hall)
  • Air Hockey
  • Table Tennis
  • Table Football
  • Board Games

We also realise that some of the younger children aren’t always able to give 100% all day. Due to this we offer a DVD hour for the children to relax and recharge those batteries before the fun starts again.

“The camp has been great for both my girls age 4 & 6. I felt happy leaving them and confident they would enjoy it. They came out tired yet energised after each day. Both have been asking to go back even on a Saturday morning!! The venue at HLC is brilliant.”

Hazel Warman, Parent

“Both my children, who have never been keen to go to a camp & who are both quite shy have clearly enjoyed each day, all the staff are so friendly & attentive to the children & they have loved all the activities on offer to them.”

Tanya Magill, Parent

“Happy Camp, Happy Children!”

Lisa Cowley, Parent

“My daughter loved the arts and crafts and some group sports activities and my son loved the football, cricket bowling machine and they both loved Waterfight Wednesday and the inflatables on the Friday.”

Jeanette Parker, Parent

“Both my children aged seven and ten enjoyed sports camp so much they asked to go for the full two weeks next time! They came home happy and tired wanting to go back again! All the staff were so friendly and familiar to our kids which made a huge impression on them! Definitely booking again next time!!”

Erin Emmons, Parent

“My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed sporting influence camps. She has tried new activities, practiced sports she knows and had a brilliant time. I would thoroughly recommend sporting influence to other parents and carers and look forward to booking more camps next year.”

Kirsty Abraham, Parent

“Both my child absolutely loved the sport camps and asked if I could book them in for more days Handy early drop off, excellent encouraging coaches, a really fun approach, lots of team spirit and high 5's. I will be booking next time and would highly recommend to anyone else. A big ten out of ten from Family Tasker. “

Cleo Tasker, Parent

“I would thoroughly recommend Sporting Influence camps. The teachers are experienced, kind, welcoming and most of all really good fun! My daughter loved every minute.”

Kirstyn Pollard, Parent

“Great camp - professionally run by professional people. Most importantly, the kids loved it. My boys have not moaned about SI once, and in actual fact, have already asked to be signed up for the next one!”

Mike Warren Smith, Parent

“A really fun week, would definitely book again!!
A friendly fun packed week that was reasonably priced, with a great team”

Mrs Chew, Parent

“Jasper loved the whole week. He enjoyed all the activities but was probably most excited about wet Wednesday!”

Mrs Denby, Parent

“They loved it!”

Mrs Murphey, Parent

“They go to various camps across the year & this was their favourite by far, if you get the dates out much earlier, then this would be the "go to club" for parents and children.”
“I have Toby (age 11) and Beatrice (age 8) and they have been to camps since they were 5 years old. I can honestly say they enjoyed Sporting influence the most out of all of the camps in Harrogate over the years. Too many of the camps are run by very young inexperienced staff which causes all sorts of problems and unhappy children/parents. They came back from SI camp happy, motivated & asking when the next dates are! Massive request for Christmas holiday dates please!”

Mrs Binns, Parent

My girls love it! They are not the sportiest of girls (the reason I picked this setting) but after just a few seasons they are now really enthusiastic about team games.


Great staff not just the ones working with the kids but behind the scenes like booking etc!! Very friendly, accomandating and professional.


The staff truly make the days thoroughly enjoyable for the kids, the choice of activities is just a big bonus, both these elements have made Sporting Influence the one camp my kids want to go to!


It's my first choice of holiday club to keep my 7 year old son active and engaged during school holidays


Professional, safe, healthy, outdoor, fun. Parents will always have working guilt, but you know deep down they have more fun at Sporting Influence than they would with you!


Very comfortable leaving my daughter in a setting where she would be well looked after whilst having the choice of a variety of activities that she would enjoy doing.


Very professionally run with super fun activities for all children that go.


Quote from my daughter: "The best camp I have ever been to."
