Get a bigger buzz!
Ever watched the kids get stuck into an amazing activity and wished you could join in? Well now you can! Canvas Holidays have teamed up with outdoor activity specialists In2Action to create FamilyExtra, our all-action activity programme for the whole family.

FamilyExtra could change the way you think about family holidays. And best of all, it’s absolutely free.

What’s on offer?
Activities range from the fast and furious water sports to gentle arts and crafts, with sessions to suit children of all ages (and you). You’re welcome to do as much or as little as you want - but most people find FamilyExtra just irresistible!

You’ll find more information about sessions for each of the different age groups below.

  • FamilyExtra for 0-3s

    Our sessions for babies and toddlers are packed with fun-filled activities for the youngest members of the family. They are aimed at encouraging the children to learn new skills and make new friends, under the watchful eye of our FamilyExtra couriers. We do ask that one parent stays throughout the session – a great opportunity to meet other parents!

  • FamilyExtra for 4-7s
    family activity holidays

    Kids this age have bags of energy so we make sure their FamilyExtra sessions are action-packed and hours of fun. They’ll love messing around with our face paints and costumes or learning about local wildlife on Mini Beast Safari, not to mention the pirate adventures and chocolate parties!

  • FamilyExtra for 8-11s

    Older children like a challenge, so trust Canvas to come up with a whole range of great activities just for them. There’s fun to be had raft-building and canoeing, not to mention Aeroball, a thrilling mix of trampolining and volleyball.

    And don’t worry if your pre-teen is the quieter type, our fully-trained staff will tailor the programme to meet everyone’s needs.

  • FamilyExtra for teenagers

    FamilyExtra offers a great place for teenagers to hang out and try something new. The weekly programme offers exciting pool based activities such as canoeing and snorkelling, and action-packed sessions like Circus Skills, Disc Golf, Movie Maker and Aeroball.

    FamilyExtra sites have been selected for their brilliant facilities, there are also great pool complexes and sports facilities to enjoy. Not a bored teenager in sight!

  • FamilyExtra for all

    With FamilyExtra, the whole family can join in. Our couriers organise regular family events, giving you the opportunity to share new experiences, make new friends, learn new skills – but most of all have loads of fun.

    There’s an amazing variety of free sessions, from cheese and wine evenings to tug o’ war competitions. Take part in a family Aeroball competition, go for gold at the Canvas family Olympics, or learn to juggle with Circus Skills.
