Christmas Programme
Check out our Christmas Programme which includes a Christmas craft activity at Patrick's Patch, a Scarf exclusive session of ringos and ski-bobs at Snowtrax, the cinema and a family Christmas walk! See our programme for all the details...

During the school holidays, Scarf runs a range of activities for our members to access.  Our holiday activities are for the whole family to enjoy – siblings are welcome to join in with their brother/sister with special needs, and parents/carers need to stay during our holiday activities to supervise their child/ren.

Our Holiday Programmes

Each holiday programme is different and includes activities such as sports (eg. climbing, kayaking, surfing, tennis, cycling etc), crafts, days out including visits to local attractions, cinema trips, visits to activity centres, and much, much more.  We try to organise a range of activities to suit a variety of ages, abilities, interests and needs.  We always appreciate families suggesting new activities for Scarf to try out.

With restrictions easing since the summer, we are able to offer a pretty full programme of activities! However, we are remaining vigilant to ensure all participants at our activities remain safe and we limit the spread of the virus.  We will offer both activities outside, but also some inside now that the weather is cooler.  We are requesting that all participants (over 11 years) take a lateral flow test in the 24 hour period before coming on a Scarf activity. We also talk in length to all our activity providers and venues in advance about their risk assessments and procedures and will communicate this with families. A Scarf Meet and Greet will be in place for each activity who had been briefed on these guidelines.  To read our Scarf Covid-19 Safety Guidelines for Members for Holiday Activities for 2021 please click here.

"We just love all the Scarf activities. So well organised and good value for money. Also it’s great to be able to meet other families in similar situations."

"Being members of Scarf makes a huge difference to our family and is invaluable to us. It allows us to participate in lots of fun activities with like minded families and gives our son so many opportunities to try new things (and old favourites) whilst socialising with old and new friends."
