My son Paddy & his cousins went to Kool Kidz holiday camp in St Albans this week. What a fabulous time they all had. Karen, Mark & the team are professional & organised and we felt more than happy with the registration & security for pick up arrangements but most importantly the children had FUN!

I took my son, 4yo, to a KK birthday disco party yesterday. He had a ball!! They played games, booged to pop music, watched magic, won prizes and ran in the ‘snow’!! KK managed the children extremely well especially as they were 3 & 4 years olds. Mark was brilliant, funny and in total control.

Best summer camp in Herts! My kids love Karen and Mark and their team – and the activities are always so varied and inventive. Thank you so much Kool Kidz!

Please pass on our huge thanks to Carl. He did a fantastic job on Saturday entertaining 35 children. My son D and the other two birthday children had a truly special birthday. All the children who came had a brilliant time and the atmosphere was fabulous. He knew just how engage the children and I


Superb birthday party entertainment today by Kool Kidz. Kids absolutely loved Mark and Tom. Would absolutely recommend and would definitely book again.

ofstedKool Kidz Camps


We are a fun and exciting action packed camp which provides quality childcare as well as a ‘special treat’ for children.

Our camps are designed for children aged 4-12 years.

Over the years Kool Kidz Camps has gone from strength to strength with children coming from far and wide to spend time with us in their holidays. We are different from other holiday camps because we listen to the children’s needs and their requirements and we are constantly developing the camps to ensure the children feel valued. We have an over 8’s and under 8’s room so that activities are child appropriate, as well as an Early Years Foundation Coordinator who is also a Primary School Teacher. Our EYFS Coordinator is a key person for all 4 and 5 year olds.

At Kool Kidz we embrace the diversity of children and reflect this in the daily planning of activities to ensure fun for all! Fun is the most important aspect to our camps, if staff are enjoying themselves the children will shine and enjoy their experience even more!

At Kool Kidz we have enthusiastic, professional and qualified staff who are DBS checked. We provide a safe environment for children to develop their social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills, as well as meet new friends and enjoy some exercise along the way.
