What are the sleeping arrangements?
The tents we are using are new and sleep 4 children in each tent. Friendship groups will be organised by the teachers.
There is one large tent for the adult volunteers to stay awake and patrol all night.
The children will try to go to sleep between 7:30pm and 8:30pm (we hope!).
What are the arrangements for eating?
Each child will need to have had their tea before they arrive.
The children will have a drink and a biscuit before they go to bed.
Breakfast will be made and eaten in the playroom (toast and cereal).
At lunchtime the following day, it would be helpful if the children could stay for school dinners otherwise someone needs to drop sandwiches off at school for them.
Children with particular dietary requirements or allergies should complete the relevant section of the consent form.
What is the cost of the Camp?
The cost of School Camp is FREE! However a donation of 50p will be welcomed towards the cost of breakfast.
