Registering with the University of Cambridge Holiday Playscheme (UCHP)

Creating an Online Account

We have decided to change the way we operate and to implement an online booking system; the aim is to give you access to your account and children information while allowing you to book and pay online 24/7.  

The new booking system will automate admin tasks, so we will have more time to serve you and your children better.  

To create your account please navigate to

Click the button ‘Don’t have an account yet? Create one here’. If you need any support you can use the Help? section on the top right hand-side of the website and follow the process described in the relevant sections. It takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes to create your account. 


Booking for UCHP May

Parents are able to book sessions on UCHP May using their Magicbooking account. Once you have activated your account, a member of the Management Team will have to assign a Parent Group to your account in order for any activities to become visible. Following the verification of your affiliation with either the University or any of its' Colleges, we will assign you to Parent Group A or B respectively and the correct discount will be applied to your booking at checkout.

Payment of your sessions is due at the time of your booking. Amendments and cancellations can be made until Tuesday 7th May, which will produce a credit note to your account. Booking will close on Tuesday 14th May.

Further instructions on how to book, access bookings and account details can be found in the ‘Help?’ section on the top right hand-side of the website. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us on 01223 339905 or speak to a member of our team. 


Please note that Magicbooking is now the only method of booking for UCHP.
