What to Bring to Camp
What to bring to our kids half term holiday camp in Leeds!
You will need:
- Snacks to cover up to 3 breaks and lunch. Please provide plenty of water and drinks for the day.
- Clothing for both indoor and outdoor fun.
- A raincoat and wellies for break-times and free play and forest schools/ outdoor adventure/ Bush Craft. We will encourage your child to use the space outdoors as much as we can to keep them fit and healthy.
- You could bring hand sanitiser if you have it. Because we will ask every child to wash their hands as they enter and leave the building. (This will also happen at key points throughout the day).
- Tissues so that your child can ‘Catch it, Kill it and then Bin it’. More tissues will also be available from us on site.
You won't need:
- Mobile phone – must not be brought to or used on any of our holiday camps. Where necessary, they should be kept in bags until the end of the day.
- Money – we don’t provide tuck shops.
- Valuables such as expensive watches and non-essential jewellery.
Securely Checking Your Child In & Out
The safety of your child is of the upmost importance to us and our dedication to safeguarding means that we will ensure that we make a record of your child on arrival. We also have a secure signing out process: If requested we’ll provide you with a security code to use when collecting your child.
The process for drop off and collection will be:
- A staff member will be at the entrance to record and register your child.
- A staff member will place their initials on the register on behalf of the collecting parent.
- Children over the age of 11 do have the power to sign themselves out if the parent or guardian has given their consent when booking.
Note: Parents will be asked to not enter inside any of the buildings and we would ask you to stop crowding at the venue entrance. This is so you can maintain an appropriate distance from those around you.
Additional Operating Procedures for the Pandemic
Due to the challenge of COVID-19, we have tested specific operating procedures, and these will be integrated into our camps.
Our guiding principle for all policies and procedures is that we are committed to safeguarding the welfare of children. Safer recruitment is integral to the way we work. All staff and volunteers are expected to share our dedication to safeguarding, always creating an environment where your child can feel safe. COVID virus specific procedures will be integrated into staff training, and our audit process to ensure they are adhered to.
Our three key principles:
- Follow social distancing guidelines.
- Following government guidelines.
- We will be operating in groups of up to 15 children,
