The University of Cambridge Holiday Playscheme (UCHP) is run by the University of Cambridge, primarily for the children of their staff and students.

UCHP is open to University of Cambridge staff and students, Cambridge Assessment and Cambridge University Press staff, College staff and College Teaching Officers and members of the General Public.

We provide high quality play opportunities and care for children who have started primary school (from reception class to 15 years old), during the February, Easter, May, Summer and October school holidays.


Playscheme is administrated from the University of Cambridge's Childcare Office, located at 21 Trumpington Street, Cambridge CB2 1QA. This is the sole location for contact between Playschemes.
