What are HAPpy Camps?

HAPpy Camps are free activity camps offering eligible children the opportunity to take part in sports and activities, arts and crafts, and enjoy a meal with friends while having fun during the holidays. Camps are a minimum of four hours long and take place all over Hertfordshire.

Eligibility criteria

HAPpy Camps are free to attend. In order to be eligible to attend a HAPpy Camp, children must:

  • Be aged 5 to 16, and
  • Attend a Hertfordshire school, and
  • Be in receipt of benefits related free school meals

In exceptional circumstances, HAPpy Camps can take referrals for children who do not receive benefits related free school meals, but who are still considered vulnerable, from professionals such as Family Support Workers, Social Workers and schools. Please contact your professional if you believe this to be the case.

Booking your HAPpy Camp

Bookings for HAPpy Camps open on Monday 6th December. Ahead of this date, if your child is eligible to attend, you will have been sent a unique HAPpy Booking Code from their school. All camps will be listed on an activity finder, which you will be able to access from this page. In the meantime, why not save this page to your phone’s home screen as a shortcut?

If you have not received your code from your school by 6th December, please contact them and ask for it.

Attending camps

We expect to have around 20,000 places available at camps over the Winter. Please only book a space that you intend to use.

If you have any questions, please email the HAF Team at
