Special Events

New sports, new skills

Our campers love our range of special events throughout the year…

Cheerleading


We like to  visit a cheerleading group to visit our St Piran’s camp, complete with pom poms!

In 2017, we enlisted the Mana squad, which is made up of 30 elite professional female dancers and gymnasts aged between 18 and 35, who sent two members of their team down to entertain our younger campers. The Mana team is the only dance group of any kind to have performed at all of the most iconic stadiums in the UK including: Twickenham, Wembley and London Olympic Stadium… and now Star Hotshots! This year, we’ll be inviting a local group to come and entertain the campers!

There is also the opportunity for children to work on our Activity Holiday Camps for a day to develop their leadership skills in a practical setting.
