Holiday Trips and Activities

During the school holidays, PACSO organises a range of exciting trips for children and young people. When we plan our trips we always take into account the things that the young people (and their parents and carers!) have told us they want to do. Many of them provide an opportunity for our young people to practice their independence skills, and might involve them using public transport, paying entry fees etc. Half day trips are held locally and might include a visit to the bowling alley or cinema, whilst full day trips go further afield. If you are interested in any of these trips, please contact Hannah in the office to ask about availability, on 01243 533353. Bursaries may be available for trips.

Primary Trips for children age 5 -11

Secondary Trips for young people age 11 -18

PACSO Plus trips from 18-25.

 

 

Our next trips will be taking place during August 2018. For more information, email admin@pacso.org.uk. You need to be a member of PACSO to join us on a trip, but membership is free!

These trips are only open to young people with disabilities/additional needs (NOT siblings) as there are limited spaces available.  Parents/carers don’t need to attend.  Places are allocated first come first served according to numbers and needs of the young adults, so we recommend booking in ASAP.

 

Family Fun Days

Each year we plan a range of activities for the whole family to enjoy together. Each activity is open to all PACSO children and young people aged 0-25 and their immediate families. Bursaries  may be available to help with family days and weekends.

 

Days Out

Many of the families who attend PACSO tell us they find it difficult to go out on day trips like other families because of the dynamics involved in caring for a disabled child when out and about. PACSO have addressed this by providing occasional days out for the whole family to enjoy. By putting on wheelchair-accessible transport, and subsidising entry fees, PACSO is able to provide a fun and affordable day out….bring your own lunch and join in the fun.

Our next Family Trip will be on Monday 27th August 9am -5pm to Paultons Park, with a coach from Fordwater school. Book now to avoid disappointment!

 

Family trip to… Paultons Park!      Monday 27th August For children & young people aged 0-25 including siblings and all the family.

This is a family event, so children & young people must be accompanied by an adult.

 

Parent carers are responsible for their children throughout the day, but some PACSO staff may be available to help – this is first come first served.

 

The coach will leave at 9:00AM from Fordwater School, Summersdale Road, PO19 6PL

 

The coach will return at approximately 5:00PM

 

Tickets: £27.50 per head. 

 

If your child is under 1m tall entry to the park is free, so the cost for a coach seat is £2.75.  Please note, if your child measures over 1m tall upon arrival at the park, you will need to pay the £24.75 entry fee for them to enter the park.  Contact us if you need help with your booking.

 

Other Family Days with PACSO include:

CYE Fun Day Monday 7th May 2018

Held on May Day Bank Holiday (the first Monday in May) at CYE Sailing Centre in Cobnor, this day aims to bring PACSO families together to enjoy a day on the water. Each year we provide a range of activities including kayaking, sailing, wheelchair-accessible boat trips around the harbour, assault course, archery, field games, bouncy castle, sensory play and messy play. A barbecue lunch is provided. CYE and PACSO staff are onsite during the day to oversee the activities, and to help out where necessary…however parents and carers are responsible for your children on this day.
