School's Out Activities is made up of a team of qualified childcare and activity professionals who have the development of children at the heart of everything they do.
MEET THE TEAM
The School’s Out team is made up of a blend of different backgrounds and specialities to ensure we deliver the best camp experience to all children. From qualified Primary School Teachers to experienced Sports Coaches, our team is driven to providing premium holiday activities. All staff are Enhanced DBS checked and trained in Safeguarding to ensure a safe and supportive environment for your child to flourish.
Our friendly staff leaders are on hand to welcome all children to camp and integrate newcomers into the group. Together they create supportive staff-to-child ratios of at least 1:10 ensuring all children’s needs are met. Brightly coloured uniforms are worn by all team members to identify their position at camp, making it easier for children to identify their leaders in their day camp and create a strong rapport.
All of our Camp Managers wear blue and provide an easy point of contact at each venue so you can get in touch with them at any point throughout the day. They are paediatric first aid trained, keeping children safe in the event of accidents.
Our camp leaders are comprised of specialists in each course area:
- Early Explorers wear yellow and are made up of Primary Education professionals, Nursery Practitioners and Play Leaders.
- Creative Crew leaders wear purple and are experienced dance instructors, art teachers and expressive art professionals.
- Adrenaline Adventure leaders wear green and have PE backgrounds, are sports coaches or adventurous activity professionals.
- Next Generation children wear red uniform to identify they are shadowing leaders and assisting with each day camp whilst training to be to instructors of the future.
