HOPS 2020


we very much regret that HOPS cannot go ahead

this year

we have carefully considered Government guidelines for children returning to school

and we realise that it will just not be possible to adhere to these whilst at the same time retaining the 'spirit' of HOPS.

We will be back

in 2021 

HOPS (Henley Outdoor Playscheme)

is a fun, exciting week of activities at the beginning of the summer holidays for children aged 6-12 inclusive.

Established 40 years ago, HOPS provides hours of activities to keep your children busy and happy

NEW ...   now 9am - 3pm 

  • minimum age is SIX and maximum age is 12...this means the child's age in August.

  • The only thing children will need to bring is a packed lunch (PLEASE NO NUTS!).

  • We suggest £1 a day for the tuck shop.

Our qualified nurse attends every day and can administer first aid as well as any medications your child may need, with your permission.  We are first-aid trained by Henley-based Ladybird First Aid, plus many of our Play Helpers also have first aid qualifications.

Activities include sports, arts, crafts, woodworking, sewing, animal encounters, circus skills workshops, festival room, henna tattoos, bouncy castlesdance classes and more, all included in the value-for-money day rate.


HOPS is run by a dedicated team of local volunteers, and is a long-established and popular Henley tradition.

If your child has a medical or other condition that you feel may impact their time at HOPS, please fill in the relevant form.

This does not affect your application, but ensures we cater properly for your child.  Please contact us on the email address above for more information.
