Activities for young people

The Children, Young People and Families services are run by a small team based at Tulse Hill Adventure Playground. We provide open access free play and youth activities five days a week at the playground along with in-school coaching to 10-18 year olds two days a week. Adventure Play is offered alongside help with homework, sports activities, cooking, arts and craft activities, bike maintenance and free play. We are also open during school holidays for daytime open access play sessions.

Majority of our play sessions now don’t require pre-booking. For Holiday Play sessions, please contact youth@high-trees.org, or call 020 8674 3975, or register using the calendar below.
