Haywards Heath

Inset Day Camps

A typical day at INSET Camp

We run camps in Haywards Heath on some INSET dates your child’s school may have; usually immediately before or after a regular school holiday.  They are based at The Albemarle Centre (on the Oathall School campus), just a 10-minute walk from the station.

A day at INSET Camp always starts with our ‘Wacky Warm Up’ to ensure campers are feeling active & excited, ready for the day ahead.  Kids then move through four separate activity sessions (all led by experienced members of our staff team) choosing each time what they’d most like to get involved with.  These activity sessions are broken up by regular break and lunch times throughout the day, allowing kids the chance to refuel and play freely.

Sign in

Firstly, find your child on our register and sign them in as you drop off at camp.

Eat breakfast

A healthy breakfast comes next, if you’ve booked our optional extended day session.

Wacky warm up

Our ‘World Famous Wacky Warm Up’ ensures every child is energised and smiling, ready for the day.


A quick run through of the activities on offer gives kids the chance to choose what they’d most like to do.

Activity session

Time to get stuck in! The morning is made up of 2 1-hour activity sessions, split by a break time.

Lunch time

At midday, kids stop to re-stock their energy with a packed lunch or one of our grab bags.

More activities

Two more 1-hour activity sessions and an afternoon break ensure kids are happy and well worn out!


The Dodgeball Classic is a long-time favourite amongst campers. Will the kids beat the staff?


To end each day, our Staff choose one child to receive our ‘Camper of the Day’ prize.


Time to go home, but not before a freshly cooked dinner for our extended dinner campers.

What time can I drop my child off?

We have a few different options for drop off / collection times, please view the timetables tab for information in relation to this camp.

Are meals included?

We can provide breakfast, lunch and dinner, which are charged in addition to your daily booking. If needed, please simply select these options when you book.

Do you cater for food allergies, intolerances and religious food preferences?

Yes. When you register your child online, we will ask you to inform us of any allergies or intolerances to allow us to prepare for any specific needs. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact us and a member of our catering team would be happy to speak to you.

Can my child bring their own food?

If your child will be staying with us for lunch and you have not booked a grab bag, please send them in with their own lunch. Children will also need a mid-morning & mid-afternoon snack i.e. a piece of fruit. Please do not pack any form of nuts i.e. peanut butter.

What if my child is ill?

If your child is ill before you leave home in the morning we ask you not to bring them to camp, but to follow guidelines set by most schools – in the case of sickness and diarrhoea your child should be free of all symptoms for 48 hours before attending.

If my child needs medication will it be administered at Camp?

Any medication must be left with the Manager and we ask you to sign a permission form to enable us to give specific medicines.

What if I want to cancel my booking?

Please see the Cancellation Policy in our terms and conditions for booking.

My children are different ages – will they be able to stay together?

Our activities are split into age groups to ensure that they are age appropriate. Siblings will be able to ‘catch up’ during free play at break and lunch times.
