Get your coronavirus vaccination at walk-in clinics in and around Cambridge – no appointment needed, but wear a face mask

ChYpPS activities

We help keep Cambridge children and their families entertained with a free programme of fun activities. Our Children and Young People’s Participation Service – known as ChYpPS – works year-round in neighbourhoods across the city to provide free open-access play opportunities for children, young people and their families.

To reserve a place on one of our sessions, email us or send us a private message on Facebook.

Children are free to come and go as they please, but we are not a childcare facility. Children under 7 must be accompanied by an adult.

Our activities can be affected by coronavirus, in which case we might need to cancel some at short notice. We will announce any changes on our Facebook page. We are happy to share our risk control measures with you if you want to read them.
