Holiday Activities & Food Programme 2022

Pioneer Childcare are proud to support the Holiday Activities & Food programme in Brighton, Hove and West Sussex.

This Summer Holiday we are running HAF Holiday camps in local schools providing your children with fantastic food, fun and games throughout the school holidays!

Our friendly and experienced team are passionate about providing fun and engaging activities for all ages.



What do Pioneer Childcare provide?

Your child will be entertained with non-stop fun and activities, and receive a free lunch.

Your child needs to bring a morning and afternoon snack, and a refillable water bottle.  

Who can attend?

Pioneer Childcare have free HAF places available for children aged 4 to 11, in full-time education, who receive means-tested Free School Meals.

When are the HAF Summer camps running?

In Brighton & Hove we’re running every day throughout the Summer Holidays between Monday 25th July and Wednesday 31st August, excluding 29th August Bank Holiday.

In West Sussex we’re running every day throughout the Summer Holidays between Monday 1st August and Friday 26th August. 

What time are the HAF Summer camps?

8.30am – 5.00pm.

We ask that all children arrive at 8.30am so that they can be part of the morning welcome and join in with the organised activities.

At lunchtime we’ll be providing a ‘Grab bag’ which will include a freshly prepared sandwich, vegetable crudité, fruit and a sweet treat. This is at no extra cost. 

Where are the HAF Summer camps running?
