The Fuel4Fun programme offers free holiday club places to young people on benefit related school meals. On our camps, children can enjoy fun activities, take part in creative and physical challenges, alongside enjoying a free nutritious meal each day. The programme also offers paid places for children not on free school meals.

what is it?

Fuel4Fun holiday camps run throughout the school holidays, with the aim of tackling food poverty and social inequalities among five to 13-year-olds in receipt of free school meals and the under 18 SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) population. We offer funded holiday camp places and we send the children home with food hampers packed with enough ingredients to make four nutritious family meals five nights a week.


Who is entitled to free holiday camps?

Children between the age of 5-13 in receipt of benefit related free school meals, that live and attend Tameside schools.

What times do the camps run?

Active Tameside Sites and Denton Community College camps will run from 9am – 3pm. External Providers will need to be contacted individually as they have separate running times.

What activities will children engage in?

All children will engage in a range of activities including Multi sports, arts and crafts, swimming and health and wellbeing sessions.

Will my child be taken off site?

Children will engage in activities off site including nature walks, park visits and trips.

Will lunch be provided?

All children will receive a healthy lunch that meets the requirements of the children’s NHS nutrition’s team.  Lunches will be ordered in advance.

My child has specific dietary requirements, can you provide lunch for my child?

My family experienced the Hyper Bowling last week. My children absolutely loved it and wouldn’t stop talking about it, it was such great fun & good how any age can win. I was impressed by the price and how clean everywhere was…

The staff! I’d still use Active Hyde’s gym if the facilities were rubbish and the price was high. There is always a cheerful person on hand to provide help and advice, both on site and on the phone.


10/10 great facilities and location. Excellent instructors and friendly staff.


The gym and reception staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, always happy to assist… I would highly recommend the gym to anyone who is looking for a friendly, professionally run gym with a great atmosphere that caters to all ages and abilities.

I am grateful to the staff at Tameside Wellness Centre for understanding my difficulties, especially since they are invisible. But believing and supporting and being kind to me has made me more determined to continue with my passion for life and remaining active as best as I can…
