Musselburgh East Community Association runs a summer activity playscheme for local children aged 8 – 12 years at Musselburgh East Community Learning Centre. The playscheme runs on Tues, Wed and Thurs mornings (10am – 1pm) during July and August and is staffed by experienced youth workers, who have all been through the necessary checks and training.
Each 3-hour session costs approximately £2.00 per child (depending on the activity), with MECA committee heavily subsidising the programme costs. Previous programme activities have included archery, circus skills, pond dipping, beastie hunting, animal handling sessions and lots of fun, games and arty crafty activities.
Registration and bookings are usually held around the middle of June. Sessions required to be paid for at registration and are non-refundable with places allocated on a first come first served basis.
