Active Young People Activities 

Of the 85,957 people living in the Forest of Dean, 22% of the population are aged 0-19 years old which equates to 18,910 young people. Of these, 710 young people aged 16-18 years old in FoD (3.6%) are not in education, employment, or training. With rural communities and links to local schools, we will be developing a wide range of innovative programmes to encourage young people across the Forest to be more active. 

Holiday Club

We offer  Holiday Clubs during the school holidays with activities including football, swimming, racket sports and more depending on the site you choose. All activities are fully supervised by our fully trained and qualified staff who will ensure all the children have a fun and active day in a safe and caring environment. Please contact your nearest Freedom Leisure centre for more information.


A fun and free family activity held in local parks similar to a treasure hunt. All you need to do is find the registration desk, pick up your map and set off to find the hidden clue.
