Holiday Camp FAQs

What are camp opening hours?

Our Holiday Camp runs from 8:15am to 5pm.

What activities will my child be able to do at club?

We provide an exciting and fun range of indoor and outdoor activities, including arts & crafts, sport, group games and team challenges.  Wherever possible these activities will be delivered outdoors, as we know this reduces the risk of transmission.

Can I drop off/collect at any point during a session?

You can drop off and collect at any point during the session. Wherever possible please drop-off between 8.15am – 9am and collect between 4 – 5pm.

What does my child need to bring?

Please send your child in with a packed lunch. Children will also need a mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack, i.e a piece of fruit. Please do not send your child in with any form of nuts and sesame i.e peanut butter, pesto.

What happens if it rains?

 Our aim is to be outdoors as much as we possibly can, so please send your child in with a rain coat. If we need to be indoors due to bad weather, we will ensure that any rooms used are well ventilated and give the children reminders about social distancing.

Will my child be grouped with their friends?

Children will be in groups for parts of the day to help with the running of our camps and to maintain ‘measures of control’ as set out in our guidance. Please speak to the club manager on the day should you have any friend requests and we will try to preserve friendship groups wherever possible.

What can my child bring to camp?
We ask that children keep belongings to a minimum, in line with school. Coat, bag, lunchbox and water bottle.

All items need to be packed into one named bag.  It is important that we reduce how many items are brought to camp as this will help us to minimise the risk of transmission.

What happens if my child becomes unwell?
If your child becomes unwell, they will be moved to an area away from the other children and you will be asked to collect them as quickly as possible.  A member of staff will remain with your child and support them until you arrive.  If your child is displaying COVID-19 symptoms, they will need to self-isolate along with any other members of your household in line with the current government guidance.
Do you have a Covid-19 policy?
Yes – Please follow this link to view our covid-19 policy.
