Please ensure you have completed and handed in a health form – this is vital as we cannot safely camp without it. If you haven’t got one, speak to a leader as soon as possible, or fill one in on Friday/Saturday when you drop off at the site.
All leaders will be contactable in case of an emergency, contact numbers will be given out before the camping weekend. In case you need to contact your child, please telephone a leader. Please don’t text, as we may not receive it during activities or in the middle of the night!).
We understand that children carry mobile phones these days, however if there are any concerns during the weekend they need to be raised with us directly as it can otherwise cause safeguarding and welfare concerns during the stay.
