School Holiday Fun

School Holiday activities

Fun for all the family, whatever the weather!

From tots to teens, there’s a whole raft of activities taking place at leisure centres across Bolton. Let your little one try something new, burn off some energy, make friends and have FUN!

FREE swimming for children aged up to 17. You just need to live within Bolton and bring proof of age/address to the centre. Check out the pool timetable and ages of children that need to be accompanied. Charges apply for inflatable sessions.

Or take a look at an H2O membership, a great value way to swim with your child as often as you wish.

Intensive swimming lessons: a half hour swimming lesson every day for a week can really improve your child’s swimming and water confidence, as well as burn off plenty of energy! They’re placed in the swimming stage that best suits their age and ability. Please phone to book.

Junior gym: 11 – 15 year olds can exercise in the gym, a great opportunity for families with older children to exercise together! Check with centres for times, children must be accompanied.

Swimming, gymnastics, trampoline and tots football lessons run as normal right through the holidays. They take place late afternoon/evening and at weekends and we welcome new joiners all year round. Give us a call for a chat about what would suit your child’s ability, at a time to suit you!

Check out timetables and book your session, or we’re always delighted to have a chat over the phone or in the centre if you would like to find out more about what’s suitable for you. Places are limited and available on a first come, first served basis, so book quickly with the centre to avoid disappointment!
