Cambridge City Council’s Children and Young People’s Participation Service (ChYpPs) is helping to keep the summer spirits high with a host of free activities for children and families over the holidays.

The SummerDaze programme contains something for everyone with activities ranging from costume-making to recycled crafts and den-building.

Most of the activities take place on the parks and open spaces across the city with an emphasis on using the natural environment, recycling resources and getting involved in some more challenging play experiences.

The team will also bring a festival feel to the city with our Big Wednesdays and smaller Community Thursdays. Working with University of Cambridge Museums there will be music, arts, face painting and sports … all FREE!

Cllr Richard Johnson, Executive Councillor for Community, Arts and Recreation, said: "ChYpPS do fabulous work bringing families and young people together to celebrate community life in the city and always put on a great event programme during the summer holidays.

"I’m sure these events will encourage children to learn and try out new things whilst having lots of fun at the same time."

Karen Thomas, Community Officer for University of Cambridge Museums, said: "Working with ChYpPS enables us to take our collections to a wider audience and, sometimes, literally on to their doorsteps. It’s great to take the museums out and about."
