Looking for something to keep your kids occupied during the long summer holidays? Well, this summer there are literally hundreds of events planned for kids in Glasgow. (I got to 704 before I gave up counting).
The programme is aimed at kids from 5-18 years, with available activities varying by age. There are way too many activities to mention, but some of them include basketball, athletics camp, arts and crafts, dance, music, table tennis, pool fun, badminton, golf, and even Wii golf. There is also a huge selection of fitness classes aimed at the older end of the spectrum (from ages 14 upwards).
The activities are spread throughout the whole of Glasgow, so you will almost definitely be able to find something within your area. If you are looking for something in particular, then you may need to travel a bit further afield though, as some activities are only present in one area (I assume this is dependent on space and coaching availability).
There is also an activity available for babies/toddlers ages 0-3 years (with parents in attendance of course) called ‘bounce and rhyme’. This is in Bailleston Library and Learning Centre at various dates throughout July and August.
To make things even better, many of the activities are free if your kid has a Young Scot Card! The rest cost between 65p and £2.20 roughly, which is still a bargain.
With all this going on, the Zest Holiday Programme looks to provide the best summer activity programme yet for kids in all areas of the city.
