The Summer’s activity camps at Carnival Hub have had to be cancelled, Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) have announced. 

Power-Up kids activity camps were scheduled to run throughout the summer holidays but are now having to be postponed after the Ofsted registration was not completed in time.

The council has said that this is down to the “high backlog of cases” Ofsted is having to process and without the registration it is “unable to run” the sessions at Carnival Hub.

Residents have called the “last minute” changes “annoying” due to it being too late to book somewhere else, with one noting that their swimming lessons were cancelled with only two hours’ notice.

WBC have apologised for the “inconvenience” and are contacting residents to offer the option to transfer their session to Loddon Valley Leisure Cente, which is

Ofsted registered, or receive a refund or credit note. 

Power-Up will now not be available at Carnival Hub until the October half term. 

The camps, which are open to 5-12 year olds, offer activities including basketball, tennis, children’s yoga, rounders, football and swimming.

Sessions take place between 9:30am to 3:30pm or 8:30am to 6:00pm, costing £25 and £36.25 respectively. 

A council spokesperson said: “The good news is that we have increased capacity at Loddon Valley Leisure Centre, so if you are looking for fun and sporty activities for your child to take part in over the summer, there are spaces available.

“We look forward to seeing you at our summer camps.”
