Summer Camp FAQS
What aged children can take part in the camp?
All children must be 8-12 years on the day they are taking part.
What time does the camp start and finish?
It starts at 9am and finishes at 4pm
Is there an early drop off and late pick up option?
Yes! We listened to your feedback from last year, and we’ve added it in for the 2019 camp. For a small fee, early drop off (8am) and late pick up (5pm) is available. This can be booked during the booking stages.
Where can I find out about all the different activities that the children will do during the camp?
You can check out our website www.sandownsports.co.uk/adventurecamp
Do you offer any discounts?
Yes! The normal daily rate is £40 per day, but when booking 3 consecutive days the cost is £100 for 3 days.
Do I need to provide snacks?
No, we will provide fruit snacks and water/squash to drink.
What are the lunch arrangements?
Everyone will need to eat….it’s our Camp fuel!! So, you can either bring a packed lunch (no nuts or shellfish please!) OR we can provide one for the extra cost of £4.95 per day. When you sign up, just let us know if you’d like to us make a picnic for you.
Do you provide drinks?
Yes. Although we would advise a water bottle in the backpacks please!
What clothes does my child need to bring?
Well, sadly the good old british summer doesn’t guarantee the weather! So it’s sensible to bring a backpack full of the following:
A full change of clothes (remember the Water Wars activity is a wet one!)
A light rain coat
Long trousers, long sleeved top and gloves (not wool) for the ski/ringos activity is essential. You won’t be allowed on without them.
My child has never ski’d before – does that matter?
Absolutely not! Everyone has to start somewhere…and what better place to learn that on London’s only dry ski slope. We have 3 different slopes, including an absolute beginners/nursery slope – which is where anyone who has not skied before will start. All ski sessions are run by qualified instructors who will ensure that your child is in the most appropriate ability group.
Does the camp continue in the rain?
Absolutely! The camp will continue, whatever the weather!
What happens if my child is ill and I need to cancel on the day?
Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can so that we can remove them from the day’s register.
Are all staff/team members DBS checked?
Absolutely! Your child’s welfare and safety is our absolute priority.
Who will look after my child at the camp?
At the start of every day, the children are put into small groups – each group has a designated leader who will be their ‘go to’ point of contact for the entire day. Each group will be colour coded, and the leader will wear the appropriate coloured t-shirt for that day. The group leader will attend all activities with the children in their group at all times.
Are there toilets on site?
Absolutely, there are separate toilets, and changing rooms for the children to use.
