Frequently Asked Questions
What does the schedule of a holiday camp day look like?
Following registration, Children take part in organised warm up games and activities before then playing more fun activities related to the theme of the day. Break time is usually around 10:45am with lunch between 12:30pm - 1:30pm. All activities throughout the day are organised and led by coaches, with the children participating in teams or individually with clear objectives of every activity.
What are the ratios of coaches to children?
We follow a 1:16 ratio when working with children, however we aim to keep it to 1:12 on most days where possible. We have a minimum of two staff per location.
Do all of your staff have the necessary checks?
All of our staff hold a current DBS check and lead coaches of each venue have a paediatric first aid certificate. A large majority of our lead coaches hold degrees in Physical education or related disciplines, some are qualified teachers working in schools throughout term time.
How do I pay with Childcare Vouchers?
To pay with childcare vouchers, firstly email us at [email protected] letting us know the day you would like to book. We would then ask you to make payment through your provider and we will confirm when payment has gone through. We may also ask you to complete an online booking form so we have all the details we need in the system.
How much is a camp day?
A camp day is £25 for one child from 9am - 4pm (drop off from 8:30am). If you book more than 3 weeks early you can pay an early bird price of £22 per day. Full weeks (5 days) are £110 and £100 early bird. Half days for 4 year olds are £12 a session.
What can 4 year olds do?
We offer a half day program for children who are 4 years old. Which runs 9:00am -12:30pm or 12:30pm - 4pm. We charge £12 per half session.
Does my child need a packed lunch?
Yes please, We play hard all day so the children need lots to eat. We give the children a morning break so please pack a heathy snack to eat. We do ask, that you do not pack any nuts or nut products in your child’s lunch bag, and no fizzy drinks too. The children as well need a refillable water bottle to use through out the day.
What clothing does my child need to bring?
It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure that their child is provided with appropriate clothing and footwear for their selected activity; usually this is simply jogging trousers, t-shirt and sports trainers. Children must bring their own shin pads when playing football. They might want to bring an extra change of clothes and a towel to the wet and wacky days.
Are there any consent forms I need to fill out?
You will now be asked to complete an online consent form the first time you book your child with our new booking system. We also ask you complete a paper copy on your first day so we have both accessible on location. We like to also have a paper copy as this is our first point of reference when outside playing games, if we need to access any medical information.
If i booked already can i change the day i would like?
Usually it isn't a problem for us to transfer your booking to another day. Simply email and request and we will do our best to make this happen for you.
Are the venues safe and secure?
We only use venues that are closed to the public, usually primary or secondary schools. Following registration either the front gate and/or front door is locked. We only use certain halls, fields and areas of the school and at all times children at supervised. Children are not allowed to wander the school or go into classrooms.
Do you have a new booking system and how does it work?
When you go to book for clubs or holiday camps, you will be now directed to a new booking system on the Active Network Software. Following your first time booking, the system will store your details, making booking in future much easier. This new system allows us to communicate better the days you have booked and allows us to securely set the number of places for each venue for each day. So please be sure to book early in case a day fills up.
