May Holiday Camp
28 - 31 May
We're excited to announce the return of the brilliant JW3 May School Holiday Camp – themed ‘Heroes and Villains’.
Each day experts from Infinite Jest Theatre Company, led by actors who regularly perform at the National Theatre, will lead your children through workshops with a variety of skills. Children will also enjoy games, stories and craft activities, and we will of course be providing a nutritious and delicious kosher lunch and snacks from our restaurant Zest. At 3.50pm each day there will be a mini-showing of the day’s work, at which parents and carers are welcome.
Tuesday: Stage Combat
Children will learn the basics of unarmed stage combat, with the younger group focussing on shadow boxing and tai chi and the older group learning some more sophisticated combat moves like hair pulling, a punch to the nose and even eye gouging! Ouch!
Wednesday: Beatboxing and Song Writing
Today at camp the children will work with a human beatboxer and song writer to inspire them to create their own raps and rhythms inspired by the theme ‘heroes and villains’. The younger group will decorate their own superhero capes and the older group will design and create their own t-shirts inspired by the song they invent.
Thursday: Mask and Mask Making
On Thursday we’ll be working with ‘Trestle’ masks to devise our own masked dramas inspired by the theme of ‘heroes and villains’. Both groups will be designing and decorating their own superhero masks and incorporating these into their mini performance.
Friday: Stand-up Comedy and Improvisation
The children will work with a successful stand-up comedian and storyteller to create their own comedy routines inspired by the ‘superhero’ theme. The younger group will craft their own mini superheroes and the older group will invent their own comic strips.

Does my child need to be Jewish to attend?
No, any child can join us on camp. We promote an inclusive and friendly environment and there will be some content that relates to Jewish culture.
What will my child be eating?
Our in-house restaurant, Zest, provide kosher catering for camp. The children have a selection of fruit at morning break and a biscuit at afternoon break. Lunches always include a salad bar and vary from pizza and pasta with tomato sauce and cheese (on the side), fish and/or falafel and chips or plain bagels with either cream cheese, egg, tuna or cheddar cheese fillings. We always provide a vegetarian option and can provide a gluten free option if requested beforehand.
My child is 4 years old, can they attend?
We cannot take children under 5 years of age on our camp for legal reasons.
I/my family are in receipt of statutory benefits, does this change the cost of Camp?
Concessions are available for those families who are recipients of benefits. Please contact Box Office to discuss individual circumstances. Proof of the benefit will need to be provided.
Can I bring medication for my child?
The only prescribed medicines which will be held by JW3 staff are asthma inhalers and EpiPens which should be in the original container, labelled with the child’s name and dosage. Any other medication must be approved by the Programme Director in consultation with the parent/guardian. Antibiotics will not be stored or administered by JW3 staff. Painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen may NOT be brought in.
What time do I pick up my child?
You can pick up your child in the afternoon between 3.50-4pm. We give this window of time for flexibility as we know that some parents might need to pick up children from other places. Please make sure you are on time - if your child is with us after 4pm we cannot guarantee entertainment or activities for them as we begin our preparations for the next day.
What is the cancellation/refund policy?
We do not refund tickets for camp except in the unlikely event of cancellation.
