During the school summer holiday, usually in August, a holiday club for primary school aged children is run by the Churches of Oundle. Chattabox  takes place at Oundle Primary School, Monday to Friday in the mornings over the course of a week. The Youth of the churches help with the holiday club as part of the programme for their own residential camp, Chattabox plus.

Chattabox and Chattabox plus are supported by a local charity OCYA (Oundle Churches Youth Association).

Oundle Baptist Church takes safeguarding very seriously, all our activities for children and youth are run by DBS checked volunteers who undertake regular safeguarding training.
