ALL places include a 2 course HOT meal. Activities include: rock climbing, football, basketball, dance, tennis, group games, arts and crafts, tag rugby and our bouncy castles! Individual day places available, you don't need to book the whole camp to take part! Arts and crafts activities tailored to the season of the year.

Some feedback from our previous camps included:

Parents were super proud of how confident their child has become and how quickly they settled in, parents always fed back to the staff of all the activities they were told their child had done and how much they enjoyed it. Parents were also very proud as they had made new friends and invited them to her birthday party which was a special occasion for the child and the parents.

Parents were grateful and so happy with the service and the transformation of their child's behaviour. They commented they will certainly come back and do it again. At the end of the week their child was talking to their new friend. This led to the two parents exchanging phone numbers and organising a play date. A real demonstration of the long term impact of our HAF provision, creating positive sustainable outcomes initiated at the camp.

REMEMBER BOOKINGS FOR OUR EASTER CAMP ARE OPEN NOW VIA OUR RECEPTION AND THE WSCC WEBSITE (FOR HAF PLACES ONLY)

Christmas Camp

After a successful year of school holiday activity camps we can confirm there will be a Christmas camp week commencing 19th December.

Swimming pool closed

It is with huge regret, The Arena Sports Centre has been forced to close the swimming pool for the foreseeable future. With the ever increasing cost of utilities and recovering from Covid 19 the Sports Centre is no longer in a position to continue the running of the pool. The Centre has invested over 100K in the last 2 years and we are still requiring repairs to the pool and building. United Learning are not in a position to re-invest financially to maintain the running of the pool.

The Arena Sports Centre team have worked tirelessly to explore all avenues, I am excited to update the public on the opportunity of some interested external parties to purchase the license and lease agreement to run the Swimming Pool. Negotiations and legal requirements are being investigated. We aim to have an update before the end of the academic year, with the aim to be up and running in September. The potential external parties are in a position to heavily invest in the Swimming Pool to get it to a positive sustainable place.

We are hopeful that with our potential collaborative working with them, it will bring the long term success to the pool and aid the Bognor Regis community swimming provision for years to come.

We understand the impact on our members, swimmers, hirers and local schools and hope to help make the transition in September as smooth as possible. The pool has been a huge part of The Arena’s past and we look forward to it being part of our future too, alongside an external partner.
