Foundation of Light's Summer 2024 programme unveiled

Foundation of Light have now launched our Summer 2024 programme for this year’s school holidays.

Always a hit with children and their parents, our summer courses give young people the opportunity to stay active and keep developing their skills during the school holidays.

This year, we are delivering a wide range of programmes at the Beacon of Light and across County Durham including Washington, Peterlee, and Stanley.

The programme boasts new and exciting activities, with something on offer to people of all ages and abilities across a wide range of interests from football to baking and multi-sports to engineering.

Here are five reasons why our summer holiday programme could be perfect for your child:

A chance to make new friends - Our holiday courses provide an excellent opportunity for young people to socialise with people their age over the school holidays when isolation from friends can be a real issue.

Stay active and exercise - Keeping children active during the summer months is crucial for their physical health and overall well-being. Foundation of Light summer courses offer a variety of engaging activities designed to get kids moving.

Learn and develop skills - Whether it’s football with our UEFA and FA qualified coaches, baking in our Ministry of Food kitchen, or our unique Candle and Wax Making course, your child will have a fantastic platform to develop their skills or learn something brand new.  

Keep safe - Safeguarding is a priority at the Foundation of Light. With trained professionals overseeing all activities, you can rest assured that your child can enjoy their activities in a safe environment.

Support the Foundation of Light - Proceeds made from our summer course go straight back into supporting the Foundation of Light and our programmes delivering life-changing work across Sunderland, South Tyneside, and County Durham.

“We’re helping families get organised a lot earlier this summer as demand has been high for our courses during the school holidays,” said Jamie Wright, Foundation of Light managing director, on the launch of the summer 2024 programme.

“We’re hoping there’s something for everyone with some brand new sessions - as well as some new venues across the North East, including Washington Millennium Centre and Beamish Football Centre.”

Bookings can be made for individual sessions with full programme block bookings also available for a selection of courses. To book online: Click Here
