COVID19 Safety Measures

It is important that all attendees adhere to government guidance and restrictions to keep each other safe during the pandemic. We ask that all families and support workers follow our guidance throughout our venues:

  • Only one parent/guardian will be allowed entry to register your child's attendance.
  • On arrival, there will be one staff member waiting to register your child. Your child will then be accompanied by another member of staff to where the activity will take place. 
  • Although face coverings won't be mandatory, we do advise that masks are worn while walking through the reception area unless medically exempt or under 11 years of age.
  • We also ask that you continue to remain a 1 meter distance from others in the building where possible.

Please note that all locations for the camps are fully risk assessed and accessible.


FAQs

Every child and young person is eligible for a free place on our October half term camps.

This October, we are hosting camps at 3 Life Leisure sites: Avondale, Stockport Sports Village and Brinnington Park Leisure Complex. 

The camps this October will run from 10am - 2pm from Monday 25th October - Friday 29th October (Our Avondale camp will be running from Tuesday 26th - Friday 29th) 

Within 24 hours of booking, you will receive a confirmation email detailing important information about your child's camp place. 

If you need to change your booking before attending the camp there will be an email provided on the booking confirmation for you to contact but please be patient for someone to reply. You can also ask our wonderful coach’s on the day during the camp if there is another day you cannot attend, where they will take all the necessary steps in helping you.

Registration will be in the same place every day. You will also receive this information in your confirmation email specific to your venue. There will be posters and banners showing where registration is but our welcoming staff will be pointing you in the right direction.

All our staff come from different backgrounds but all have one thing in common which is offering the BEST diverse activity camps delivery with varied and inclusive opportunities for children and young people. Our staff are recruited for their attitude, enthusiasm and dedication to caring for children. Some are primary PE leads, some are coaches, some are youth workers, we have play leaders and volunteers. More importantly they have gone through the necessary DBS checks, safeguarding qualifications, first aid training and possess a wide-ranging skillset for a varied activity offer.

If you cannot attend on any of the days you have booked, please ensure to let your site know by either phone or email. If your child doesn't attend on the days you have booked without letting us know, unfortunately your place will be allocated to somebody on the waiting list for that day and the rest of the week.

Each child should wear appropriate clothing to do some physical activity in and appropriate for the weather which may include bringing/applying sun cream, wearing waterproof clothing and/or wearing suitable footwear for the day ahead. Our arts and crafts activities and cooking can get messy and we would rather your child's best clothes don't get ruined. Aprons will be provided for cooking. Additionally please make sure they bring any medication that is required.

No, lunch will be provided each day.

Yes - Please make sure your child brings plenty of drinks.

Every day up to 30 different types of activities are available ranging from various sports such as Football, Athletics, Dodgeball, arts and crafts activities, involvement with nature/gardening and differentiation within the activity delivery to allow for an inclusive environment. If you are still unclear and you wish to find out exactly what activities will be involved on that day, please ask the deliverers in the morning what the day’s plans are.

Yes. At the end of each day our staff will be more than happy to talk to you in the collection area and tell you all about how much fun they have had in their group on that day.

  • Every child day will have a wide variety of games and activities
  • Children will be well supervised
  • Children will make new friends
  • All staff are 100% committed to delivering a enjoyable fun filled week for kids

Each deliverer is trained to deal with any situation to make sure that everyone is kept safe and engaged throughout the day. If there are any problems, any of the deliverers can be spoken to, to resolve an issue.

We would like parents to be arriving 5 minutes before the end so that it ensures the smooth transition and the kids aren’t waiting around for too long after there day of fun filled activities.

Often we have 'special guests' visit us on site, offering children slightly different experiences to what we normally provide.
