Summer Holiday Camps are live…

Join us for up to 6 weeks of Fun in the Sun… BOOK NOW to secure your space and avoid disappointment!

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to camp over the Summer holiday period for up to 6 weeks of fun-filled activities! We anticipate selling out most courses as we did at Easter, as families can’t travel as freely abroad this year, so do make sure to book early to avoid disappointment.

We have updated our Covid safety measures below following the government guidance which came into force on May 17th, and we will continue to update this in line with the easing of restrictions proposed for July 19th. Please see below for more detail…

We are pleased to announce Swimming will return for our Ipswich and Colchester venues, and all new themes and activities will be on offer this Summer… we are hopeful of receiving 6 ALL NEW inflatable activities that will roam between all venues this summer. They are still being made, but watch this space for more info about when they will be at camp this summer!

We’re excited to see you and we’ll of course have the high levels of COVID-safe protocols you’ve come to expect from us.

Spaces Available

 

 

COVID Safety Measures:

  • MASKS: In line with the new government guidance our staff will no longer be required to wear masks indoors unless social distancing is not possible. Children aged 11+ will also no longer be required to wear masks indoors. However, all parents/guardians will still be required to wear face masks during drop-off and collection. All visitors to camp will also be required to wear a face mask in indoor areas.
  • LEADERS: Leaders will engage with asymptomatic testing during the holidays. There will also be the same activity leaders in each bubble for the whole week where possible. This will allow stringent deep cleaning routines of facilities and equipment before and after use.
  • PREFERRED WEEK-LONG BOOKINGS: Individual day bookings are still allowed but we would advise week-long bookings where you can (Mon – Fri)  to keep the bubbles consistent across sessions as much as possible. Why not make the most of our 5 days for the price of 4 deal on week-long bookings at just £140!
  • SINGLE CHILDCARE SETTING: Parents are advised to avoid using multiple childcare providers during school holiday periods. We would suggest if using School’s Out Activities in a school holiday, then we are your sole childcare provider. This is a government recommendation.
  • TRANSPORT: Parents are advised not to use public transport when sending their children into camp. This is another government recommendation.
  • SOCIALLY DISTANCED DROP OFF: We will be implementing a one-way system socially distanced drop off and collection points at all venues and courses this year. This means reception points will just be inside doorways and families will need to queue 2m apart. We will also require all adults to wear a mask during drop off and collection.
  • HAND WASHING: Full hand washing routines will be implemented throughout the day. Where possible different bubbles will have sole use of their own toilet facilities, with controlled access whilst in use. Parents are welcome to pack their own hand gel sanitizer for their child to use.
  • RISK ASSESSMENTS: Full risk assessments have been completed on the sites we use and all of the activities we deliver. This does mean some of the timetables may be adjusted. The end-of-week show will not be open to parents and families to come to watch currently. Instead, performances will be filmed in their bubbles and published to social media for families to watch. This has proven very popular, make sure to check out our Facebook page on the Monday after each camp week when all videos for the previous week will be uploaded!
  • CLINICALLY EXTREMELY VULNERABLE CHILDREN: CEV children are advised by government guidance not to attend while shielding applies nationally. Please seek expert medical advice if you are unsure if they applies to your child. 
  • SYMPTOMS: Children must not attend if they or anybody in their household experience any of the following symptoms:
    – A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
    – A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
    – A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.

    You must inform The Camp Manager and/or Head Office in the event of experiencing any symptoms.

As a childcare provider, we understand the importance of keeping all children, staff and families who visit our sites safe. It is great that we can welcome back children to our camps to finally experience outdoor play, activities and all of the social benefits that come from time spent at camp.
