This summer the Silly Eric Day Camp returns to Southwold! This exciting day camp is the second event held in Southwold and is ideal for children looking for an action packed day without the grown-ups!

Silly Eric was created by Gracie Wright – a local lady who grew up in Wrentham and has over 15 years’ experience working with children. Silly Eric was originally a character for a children’s book which has sold exceptionally well and it was from here that Gracie decided to create the Silly Eric Day Camp.

This event will be taking place at Southwold Rugby Club on Southwold Common (opposite the So Southwold office). The confirmed dates for this event are August 17th, 18th, 21st, 24th, 25th and 28th. 

Suitable for children from ages 1 – 15 years old, the Silly Eric team have come up with suitable activities for children divided into three age groups – Silly Tots (ages 1 – 3 years old), Silly Birds (ages 4 – 13 years old) and Silly Pros (ages 7 – 15 years old). 

Please see below the proposed timetable of activities –

  Monday Tuesday Friday
9.30am 10.20 am Footy Fun Run Ball Games
10.30am - 11.20am Treasure Hunt Footy Treasure Hunt
12.30pm - 1.20pm Dance Drama  Arts and Crafts Writing Workshop
1.30pm - 2.20pm Writing Workshop Dance Drama Arts and Crafts


Please note that oranges, apples, bananas and water are all provided for the attendees but children will need to bring their own lunches with them.

These fun filled activities have been carefully designed to work and develop learning skills and encourage little people to work together.

Prices start from £7.00 and if you would like more information on the activities and how to book, please visit the Silly Eric website for further details or call/email Gracie on 07754 783392 

Programmes are also available to collect from So Southwold at The Old Water Tower when you collect keys for your holiday cottage.

‘Silly Eric’ by Gracie Wright is available to buy online at Amazon.

NB: The Silly Eric Day Camp team are all DBS checked.
