Please Note:

1. Children must not bring any valuables on-site with them during the entire summer camp. Wallets, phones, watches, necklaces, bracelets etc should be left at home. Parents will be given an emergency number to ring if they need to contact their child.

2. There will be a short supervised 15-minute break at approximately 11.30 am.

3. We have had many young children through our adventure centre to date – however, some of the activities throughout the week will involve heights. We would, therefore, suggest any children under 10 years of age should come with a friend or even an older brother or sister.

4. We recommend that parents arrive at 9.15 am on Monday for registration. All children taking part in the Summer Camp must register between 9.15 – 9.30 am. For the rest of the week, the children must be onsite no later than 9.30 am, as rollcall is at 9.40 am.
