Applications to run a HAPpy Camp during 2022 are now open

Hertfordshire Community Foundation and Hertfordshire Sports Partnership have once again partnered with Hertfordshire County Council to deliver Easter school holiday activity programmes to children aged 5-16 eligible for benefits related free school meals.

The funding has been made available by the Department for Education to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds who are less likely to access organised out of holiday activities and are more likely to experience social isolation and holiday hunger.

The fund is open to voluntary and community groups, schools, district councils and private providers where their activities meet the charitable objectives of the fund. This includes existing providers who can expand their provision and also groups who can provide innovative and specialised activities.

Access to free relevant training will be offered in support of the programme to successful applicants.

The deadline for Easter applications is midnight on Monday 31 January. Activities will run for a minimum of four hours a day and you can apply for a grant to provide activities for just one day or for up to a maximum of nine days during the delivery period. The delivery period for Easter school holidays will fall over two weeks as follows:
