Frequently asked Questions

I am concerned about the safety of my child at camp.
We have carefully planned camp, with safety of children and staff as paramount. Our risk assessment provides more detail and can be found below you will also find government guidance on eligibility for camp at the top of this page.

The bubble system we have introduced, is in line with government guidelines which has been followed by schools. We have supported schools and run camps during the pandemic and our staff are experienced at operating in this way. By limiting the amount of children in each group/bubble, we are restricting the contact with other children and adults. We have numerous measures in place to ensure child safety and will constantly review and update procedures according to guidelines and our experiences at camp.
