Due to popular demand, Tees Active’s summer HAF 2021 programme now gives both primary and secondary school children in the borough of Stockton-on-Tees the opportunity to take part in free activities and receive free healthy lunches throughout the 2021 summer holidays!
Children can enjoy free sessions courtesy of Tees Active at Billingham Forum’s indoor climbing facility GoClimb, Forum Ice Arena and Tees Barrage’s high ropes adventure course Air Trail. Activities are available on specific days and all come with a healthy lunch for the kids. Please be aware, children need to be at least 1.2m tall to visit Air Trail.
Each activity is available for free to children who attend either primary or secondary school in in Stockton-on-Tees and are in receipt of benefits-related free school meals. Parents must stay in attendance for activities with primary school children.
The Super Summer Programme is happening thanks to the Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF), led by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council in partnership with the Department for Education who have provided funding for the activities.
