Rainy day ideas for Corby families

editorial image

A rainy day needn’t dampen youngsters’ spirits this summer as there are still lots of activities for everyone to get stuck in to!

Already during the summer holidays at the Corby Heritage Centre, children have kept dry and learned about Corby’s history with computers through the brand new exhibition on show, before being given the chance to make their very own robot out of just paper, cardboard and colour pens!

If this sounds just up your street, you haven’t missed your chance!

More sessions will be taking place on Thursday, July 30, and Friday, July 31, and on Thursday, August 6, and Friday, August 7, from 1.30pm to 3pm for anyone aged between four and 12 years old.

To book a place, for just £2 per child, please contact Billy Dalziel on 01536 464284, or email billy.dalziel@corby.gov.uk – places are limited to just 8 children per session, so please make sure you book your place!

The usual and extremely popular Splat Camp is back to fill youngsters’ days with fun things to do like arts and crafts, football, archery, board games, outdoor activities, clay making and much more!

Book a place now for £15.50 a day or £70 a week by calling Lodge Park Sports Centre 01536 400033.

Splat Camp will run until Wednesday, September 2, excluding weekends and the August bank holiday.

And for those who like the wet ‘n’ wild lifestyle, dive straight into our programme of activities at Corby East Midlands International Pool.

From Monday, July 27, there will be activities such as Flip & Fun, Rookie Lifeguard, Surf & Turf, Intensive 1-1 Swimming Lessons and much more.

Check out the Corby Council website to see more details.

The website also has an array of events and activities for those who prefer to stay on dry land, including Wicked Wednesdays at East Carlton Country Park, where little ones can join Woodland Rangers at the park for some nature walks through the woods and the opportunity to find out about the hard work our rangers and volunteers do to keep the woodlands a safe and friendly environment for visitors.
