Where will my child sleep?
Children on summer camps share 6 bed en-suite dorms with other children of the same gender and age. Double or singe rooms are not available for summer camps.
Can my child share with a friend?
If your child is coming with a friend, you can ask for them to share and we will arrange it where possible. If you child is coming as part of a group, they will usually be able to share with at least one friend. We will do our best to put friends in the same room, but this is not always possible due to limited beds and group numbers.
Will they need sleeping bags?
For residential summer camps, all bed linen is provided. They will need to bring towels and toiletries. For Camping Expedition Summer Camps sleeping bags are required.
What do they need to bring?
Read our What to Bring checklist for full information on what to bring. We provide all safety equipment and gear required for activities. We recommend that children do not bring any valuables with them. Children are responsible for keeping their own possessions safe and must make sure to take everything with them on departure. We recommend that you label all your childs clothes with their name and that each child brings a list of their possessions to help with this.
What will they eat?
Breakfast includes cereal, porridge, toast, fruit, juice and yogurts. For lunch we have a sandwich bar for children to make their own sandwiches from a selection of fillings, as well as homemade soup, fruit and biscuits. Dinner includes a delicious, homecooked, hearty main course with a salad bar, followed by homemade dessert. Tea and biscuits are served after evening games. There is also a tuck shop on site so no-one will go hungry!
Do you cater for vegetarian/vegan/special diets?
Vegetarian, vegan and special diets can be catered for, but you will need to book in advance of arrival.
What is your mobile phone policy?
Our Mobile Phone Policy is designed to give kids a break from technology. Phones/tablets are safely stored by our staff and returned for use between 6.30pm and 7.30pm every evening. Mobile phones can only be brought to activity sessions if they are used as medical device or for other essential reasons which must be agreed in advance.
How do I contact my child?
Our Mobile Phone Policy gives children phone time between 5.45pm and 7pm each evening. This is usually the best time to contact them. However, you can call our office on 095 43411 at any time and children always have access to our phone if they need to contact you.
My child has left something behind. Can you return it?
Unfortunately, we cannot return items left behind. Anything left behind will be recycled, donated to local charities or disposed of on the day of departure.
